Dr. Azad Moopen, MD
Founder Chairman & Managing Director
Aster DM Healthcare
We have been consistent in our mission to provide quality healthcare at affordable costs to people from all walks of life. We started our journey of “Caring Mission with a Global Vision” 3 decades ago. This is in sync with the universal healthcare philosophy of Quality, Affordability and Accessibility.
When it comes to quality, we are proud to boast a plethora of awards and certificates that prove our credentials, but more importantly, quality runs much deeper in the DNA of Aster DM Healthcare. Our teams inculcate the ethics of quality in everything that we do and strongly believe that when it comes to achieving excellence, there is no finish line.
In today’s world, healthcare is becoming more and more expensive, but we, at Aster, as far as possible, try to make our services affordable to everyone. Healthcare is not just an industry to us but more like a belief in everything that we do. The profits of our services are just a by-product, and not the primary aim of our healthcare. We make sure to transcend this belief into our core values which are Compassion, Integrity and Respect. In order to serve all sections of the society, we have in place different brands with varying price bands. We also provide support to those who are in need through our life-changing Foundations and CSR activities.
Making quality healthcare services accessible to all as well as proximity to healthcare are important focus areas for us. We make sure that our services provided are close to our customers by providing a large network of clinics and pharmacies. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg. We are in the process of rolling out programs, leveraging Information Technology to make accessibility much wider and deeper, and bringing healthcare to the doorsteps of people.
Our recently adopted brand promise – ‘We’ll Treat You Well’, is to all our internal and external stakeholders, which include our partners, employees, patients, business associates and public. From top to bottom, we, as Asterians, promise our internal stakeholders that we’ll treat everyone equally.
Many ask me the recipe for our success – from a single doctor clinic in Dubai to a network of nearly 323 establishments, spread in 9 countries with over 19,593 staff. I strongly believe that it has been due to the blessings of the Almighty, the support of the visionary leaders and the people of the countries we operate in. Above all, I want to recognise and thank the unending hard work of the united and passionate team of Asterians. Thank you all!
