Superbrands, the independent authority and arbiter of branding, announced that NMC Healthcare has won the coveted ‘Brand of the Year’ award at the 13th annual Superbrands tribute event.

 Mike English, Director, Superbrands Middle East said, “NMC Healthcare… has, over the years, enjoyed a reputable position as one of the most trusted brands, thanks to its dedication to providing superior healthcare outcomes, compassionate care, and a sincere commitment to the overall well-being of the community.”

Super brands

With more than 2,000 leading brands in the UAE vying for the coveted Superbrands title, only 64 scored more than 80 per cent of the total possible mark and were declared Superbrands by the Brand Council.

These 64 were awarded Superbrands status, a powerful endorsement and evidence for existing customers, potential customers, the media, suppliers, investors and employees of each brand’s exceptional status.

Healthy business

Established in 1975, NMC is the largest private healthcare services provider and one of the largest wholesale and distribution businesses in the UAE.

It also ranks amongst the top three fertility providers in the world. Every day over 12,000 patients receive treatment at NMC facilities across UAE, Spain, Italy, Colombia, Denmark, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and Oman.

A team of 1,200 doctors and 10,000 paramedical and support personnel manages 11 hospitals, 15 medical centres, three long term care facilities, two day surgery centres, 13 fertility clinics and one home health services provider.
