Thumbay Group welcomes 6000th medical tourist at Thumbay Hospitals on World Tourism Day

Thumbay Medical Tourism (TMT) – the award-winning medical tourism initiative of Thumbay Group – celebrated the World Tourism Day on September 27, 2016 by welcoming its 6,000th Medical Tourist at Thumbay Hopsital, Ajman. Concurrently, TMT also hosted celebrations at Sharjah International Airport.  In a bid to foster awareness among the international community on the significance of medical tourism, the TMT kiosk at the airport welcomed numerous passengers from various countries, providing over 1000 complimentary gift packs which included free consultation passes at Thumbay Hospitals, information packs and other goodies.

Commenting on Thumbay Group’s participation in the celebration of tourism, Akbar Moideen Thumbay, Vice-president - Healthcare Division at Thumbay Group, said, “On the historical occasion of welcoming our 6000th medical tourist at our hospital, especially on World Tourism Day, we are very proud of our achievement. Although most travelers prefer to stay away from hospital/illness while on vacation, a fast-increasing number of medical tourists (people who align treatment with travel) are choosing international destinations like UAE for the sole purpose of attaining quality medical services.  We take this opportunity to inform everyone about the services we offer. We aim to assist medical tourists arriving to the UAE with access to Thumbay’s state-of-art, efficient and affordable healthcare services.”
Thumbay Medical Tourism focuses on promoting Thumbay Group’s ultra-modern healthcare services to the growing number of international patients visiting the UAE, at affordable costs. TMT provides a host of travel and medical services to medical tourists from all over the world, and also arranges on-demand translator services, accommodation services, customized treatment packages, preferred cuisine, travel arrangements, priority appointments, airport pick up and drop off, etc.
Thumbay Medical Tourism currently has offices in six different countries and looking to open in 20 different nations.  TMT is looking to partner with interested parties to expand its network and is inviting proposals for the same.
