NMC Healthcare completes 1 year on the London Stock Exchange

A sneak peek into the glorious journey!

With a proud heritage of 38 years in the UAE and almost as old as the 42-year-old glorious nation, it’s interesting to know that the New Medical Centre (NMC) commenced its operations as a small pharmacy and clinic in Abu Dhabi in 1975! After almost four splendid decades, NMC Healthcare has now become one of the largest private healthcare providers in the UAE with over 23 specialties, 5,000 healthcare professionals and touching over 1.8 million lives each year.

In April 2012, NMC Healthcare became the first healthcare company from the GCC and the first from Abu Dhabi to be listed on the premium segment of the prestigious London Stock Exchange and a part of the FTSE-250 index. “It was critical for our founders to be the first to be listed on the London Stock Exchange since we’ve have always been pioneers in what we do,” said NMC Healthcare’s COO Mr. Binay Shetty.

NMCBeing a world-class medical institution synonymous with genuine care and commitment, NMC Healthcare has a pan-UAE presence with eight operational  facilities in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain and Sharjah along with three upcoming health facilities such as BrightPoint Women’s Hospital in Abu Dhabi, NMC Hospital in Dubai Investments Park and NMC Specialty Hospital in Khalifa City A.

NMC Healthcare also operates its own brand of pharmacies to ensure integrated medical services to patients receiving treatment at its hospitals and medical centres. These pharmacies operate as community pharmacies, serving patients from all NMC hospitals as well as external patients.

NMC Trading, which was established in 1981, is a trading, logistics and distribution division which has a strong presence across the UAE. NMC Trading is one of the largest distributors in the UAE, dealing with Pharmaceuticals, Scientific and Medical equipment, FMCG products, Food products, Veterinary products and Educational products. It  has exclusive rights for the distribution of some of the most premier brands from around the world, including Nivea, 3M, Siemens, Abbott, Pfizer, Kiwi, Brylcreem, Unza, Pharmaton, Fem, Pears, Dial, Unilever, Sara Lee and Neocare among others.

With so much going for NMC Healthcare, the future only looks brighter with the country’s largest private healthcare provider planning to expand into the wider MENA region!
