As the Acting Chief Executive Officer of Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC), I am honored to lead one of the UAE’s largest and most comprehensive medical facilities. Established in 2019 as part of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, SSMC was envisioned to elevate health care services in the Emirate and position Abu Dhabi as a global hub for health.

Our mission is fueled by a commitment to providing transformational health care solutions that foster profound trust and loyalty across the region. We embrace a philosophy centered on ethical practices, compassionate care, collaborative teamwork, and an unwavering drive for innovation and excellence. Our mission is reinforced in 2024 with our integration into PureHealth’s network, enabling us to leverage shared resources, expertise and a continuous improvement mindset.

We cultivate an environment where cutting-edge advancements and personalized attention enable us to deliver excellence across all medical specialties and services. In collaboration with PureHealth, we remain focused on exceeding international benchmarks while being responsive to the evolving needs of our community.

The remarkable achievements, including around 600,000 patient interactions, over 445,000 outpatient visits, 129,000 emergency cases, and 27,000 inpatient admissions, are a testament to our unwavering dedication. This is made possible by our world-class facilities, state-of-the-art technology, and a team of nearly 500 physicians across 46 service lines, supported by 1,500 skilled nurses.
On another front, at SSMC, we are dedicated to nurturing local talent, actively contributing to the sustainable growth of the UAE’s health care sector. We recognize the vital importance of investing in homegrown expertise to ensure the long-term success and self-sufficiency of our nation’s health care infrastructure.
