E Abdulla Ahmed Al Habbai, Chairman of Dubai Holdings and Group Chairman of Meraas. 
 
H.E. Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of DHA commented, “Increase in demand for quality health services due to Dubai’s rapid urban development, rise in demand for in-patient services and influx of medical tourists has necessitated the continued need to support and encourage the development of world-class healthcare delivery system.
