An Indian doctor who was recently honoured by UAE's visiting foreign minister here for her five decades of contribution to healthcare in his country, today said her hospital group aims to strengthen the Indo-UAE relations with skill development of professionals and medical tourism initiatives.
After years of dedicated service, Zulekha Hospital was established in Sharjah in 1992 through her efforts. It started off as a 30-bed hospital with basic facilities for gynaecology, obstetrics, surgery, medicine and pediatrics.
The Zulekha Healthcare Group includes two multidisciplinary hospitals in Dubai and Sharjah, as well as three UAE medical centres and three pharmacies providing specialised treatments in over 30 disciplines, the Sharjah-based group said in a statement, adding it has also opened a multidisciplinary hospital in India.
"We hope to achieve more synchronisation and strengthen Indo-UAE relations with skill development of medical professionals and medical tourism initiatives," Daud was quoted as saying in the statement.
The recognition accorded to her coincides with the 'Year of Zayed' Initiative during which UAE is commemorating the indelible legacy of its founding father.
Abdullah presented her with a letter of thanks and appreciation for her "five decades of valuable contributions to healthcare sector in the UAE" and her tireless efforts to boost welfare of UAE citizens and residents, the group said.
Daud said the recognition is an absolute honour and will "inspire me to do more for the nation".
