Thum­bay Group’s re­cently opened state-of-the-art aca­demic hos­pi­tal, Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal at Thum­bay Medic­ity, Aj­man, is one of the largest pri­vate aca­demic hos­pi­tals in the re­gion, with a 350-bed ca­pac­ity. The hos­pi­tal is equipped with the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and has ex­pert health­care pro­fes­sion­als. As a qua­ter­nary care fa­cil­ity, it is a re­fer­ral hos­pi­tal to which pri­mary and sec­ondary care hos­pi­tals and clin­ics re­fer their com­plex cases.

Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal is part of the Gulf Med­i­cal Univer­sity Aca­demic Health Sys­tem, which was one of the first pri­vate aca­demic health sys­tems in the re­gion. The hos­pi­tal is a cen­ter for the clin­i­cal train­ing of the stu­dents of the Gulf Med­i­cal Univer­sity, and has fa­cil­i­ties for aca­demic ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing lec­ture halls, aca­demic de­part­ments, spe­cial fa­cil­i­ties, etc, cre­at­ing an ideal learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Even the hos­pi­tal’s food court has been de­signed as a “Live & Learn” space, fa­cil­i­tat­ing the ex­change of knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion and pro­mot­ing seam­less learn­ing. Lo­cated within the hos­pi­tal is a Thum­bay Phar­macy out­let, which is a ro­botic phar­macy with au­to­mated tech­nol­ogy to pre­pare and dis­pense medicines.

“With the open­ing of the re­gion’s largest pri­vate aca­demic hos­pi­tal, Aj­man has now be­come a land­mark. Lo­cated at Thum­bay Medic­ity, the hos­pi­tal is per­fectly po­si­tioned to serve a large pop­u­la­tion, at the same time fur­ther ad­vanc­ing our ef­forts to trans­form the coun­try and the re­gion into a global med­i­cal tourism des­ti­na­tion,” says Dr. Thum­bay Moideen. “The main pil­lars of our busi­ness are ed­u­ca­tion, health­care and re­search. In line with Thum­bay Group’s vi­sion to ex­pand our global strate­gic net­work, the new hos­pi­tal has es­tab­lished in­ter­na­tional col­lab­o­ra­tions with lead­ing in­ter­na­tional cen­ters of ex­cel­lence in the U.S., France, Spain, Italy and Korea.”

One of the re­mark­able as­pects of Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal is its cen­ter for long-term care and cen­ter for in­ten­sive phys­i­cal medicine and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, which pro­vides wide-rang­ing long-term care (LTC) ser­vices, in­clud­ing health-re­lated ser­vices and per­sonal-care re­lated ser­vices. The hos­pi­tal has ded­i­cated 100 beds ex­clu­sively for LTC pa­tients, em­pow­er­ing them to live in­de­pen­dently, within safe set­tings, along with pro­fes­sional ser­vices to as­sist them in their daily ac­tiv­i­ties.

“The long-term care unit at Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal aims to help the pa­tient re­gain his/her qual­ity of life and dig­nity, at the same time

sup­port­ing the pa­tient’s fam­ily by help­ing them go ahead with their nor­mal lives, not hav­ing to worry about car­ing for the af­fected fam­ily mem­ber,” says Ak­bar Moideen Thum­bay, Vice Pres­i­dent of the Health­care Divi­sion of Thum­bay Group.

Cus­tomized care is an es­sen­tial part of the hos­pi­tal’s LTC ser­vices, and the unit fol­lows in­ter­na­tional stan­dards of treat­ment; a di­rect out­come of the hos­pi­tal’s ex­ten­sive in­ter­na­tional col­lab­o­ra­tions with lead­ing global cen­ters of ex­cel­lence world­wide. Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal also has a Ther­a­peu­tic Gar­den to aid the pa­tients’ holis­tic re­cov­ery.

The LTC unit of Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal op­er­ates in as­so­ci­a­tion with

the Thum­bay Phys­i­cal Ther­apy and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Hos­pi­tal (TPTRH), a state-of-the-art hos­pi­tal equipped with ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy and pro­fes­sional ex­per­tise, also lo­cated at Thum­bay Medic­ity. TPTRH of­fers all kinds of oc­cu­pa­tional ther­apy, phys­i­cal ther­apy and speech ther­apy ser­vices, and is as­so­ci­ated with Villa Beretta, Como, Italy; a cen­ter of ex­cel­lence in phys­i­cal ther­apy and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. It has a wide range of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and phys­i­cal ther­apy equip­ment and fa­cil­i­ties pow­ered by AI, ro­bot­ics and vir­tual re­al­ity.

Thum­bay Medic­ity has emerged as a re­gional hub of fu­tur­is­tic med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, state-of-the-art health­care and cut­ting-edge re­search, thanks to its ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy and ex­per­tise. It is well-equipped to serve 20,000+ peo­ple daily, with top­notch fa­cil­i­ties in ed­u­ca­tion, health­care, re­search, leisure, lux­ury, fitness, and en­ter­tain­ment, built with an in­vest­ment of over $272 mil­lion.

In ad­di­tion to Thum­bay Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal, Thum­bay Medic­ity also houses the Gulf Med­i­cal Univer­sity, Thum­bay Den­tal Hos­pi­tal and Thum­bay Phys­i­cal Ther­apy and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Hos­pi­tal. Out­lets of Thum­bay Phar­macy and Thum­bay Labs, Body & Soul Health Club and Spa, Thum­bay Food Court, The Ter­race Restau­rant, Blends & Brews Cof­fee Shoppe and the Thum­bay Hous­ing Project to ac­com­mo­date 2,500 staff and stu­dents are also part of Thum­bay Medic­ity.
