Akbar Moideen is a man brimming with self-belief to follow his own dreams. He is the Vice-President of the Healthcare Division of the well-known Thumbay Group. Highly encouraged by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s inspirational leadership and pearls of wisdom, Akbar has been instrumental in shaping its strategic vision. With a long history of successful business ventures and a distinguished line of accomplished ancestors, including his father, Dr. Thumbay Moideen (founder president of Thumbay Group), Akbar finds motivation in his family’s business acumen and has become a key figure in the healthcare industry.

Akbar emphasizes their commitment to the latest healthcare technologies, aiming for HIMSS Stage 7 certification, where paper becomes obsolete, and AI and digital integration take the forefront. A staunch believer in the intrinsic value of healthcare to the community, he underscores its significance in the UAE. One of his key initiatives has been to promote Thumbay Hospitals in the medical tourism segment aggressively, with Thumbay pioneering inbound medical tourism in the UAE since 2007. The Group’s ultra-modern healthcare services are promoted to international patients across 87 countries through tie-ups with representative offices. Akbar’s passion project has expanded its reach to attract medical tourists from GCC, and Africa, and now aims to conquer Europe and parts of Asia, leveraging Dubai’s central location as a prime medical tourism hub.
