Dubai, UAE, 6 October 2018:   At the 11th Arabia CSR Awards 2018, Aster DM Healthcare was felicitated with a special recognition in the healthcare category, for its outstanding contribution to the society through its corporate social responsibility programmes.

Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare, said: “At Aster DM Healthcare, we firmly believe that profit should be a by-product in healthcare. Guided by this philosophy, we have been constantly exploring ways to give back to our society and environment. In all our endeavors our motto “We’ll Treat You Well” is our guiding star, be it enabling access to quality healthcare to all sections of the society or helping people who are in need. We are very happy that our efforts have been recognized by the Arabia CSR Network.”
