Al Sharq Healthcare was founded in 1996, and operates as a subsidiary of Fujairah National Group (FNG), one of the largest commercial diversified groups on the East Coast of the United Arab Emirates. Fujairah National Group was founded in 1982, and now supports 40 companies and more than 4,000 employees across ever major business sector. As part of its long standing connection to Al Sharq Healthcare provides services through Al Sharq Hospital, Al Sharq Medical Center- Al Etihad and Dibba and through sea we supports three distinct Marine Medical companies – Fujairah Port Medical Centre, Fujairah Port Pharmacy and Marine Pharma FZE – the ships medicine supply company.
Al Sharq Healthcare started its operations with the medical center, where we introduced the key OPD clinics for the people of Fujairah. And with its unparalleled services and success, it started another medical center within Fujairah so as to reach to more and broader population.
Within the limited span, the expansion went beyond to City of Dibba, where we started our operations. Dibba is around 60 km away from Fujairah which not only caters its population but also to people of Oman whose border is just distance away from Dibba.
The Vision ultimately was to expand further and launch the hospital which we did in 2012.
Al Sharq provides comprehensive medical services to a large population of the emirate that are employed in the Sea, Air and Land, offering an end to end service from initial illness/injury through to diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Where it relates to ship based patients, Fujairah Port Medical Centre has the capability to immediately attend to, diagnose and stabilize casualties at sea, referring them as necessary to the state of the art 100 bed Al Sharq Hospital, which provides all major medical and surgical specialties, including a Cardiac Cath Lab, advanced operating theatres, a sophisticated Intensive Care Unit (with isolation as needed) and comprehensive diagnostic services (MRI, CT, Digital X-ray and fully equipped central laboratory).
Fujairah is rightly known as the jewel of the Middle East. Its unique strategic location offers free access to the major shipping routes of the world, making it the pick of ports for international entrepreneurs. Today Fujairah is one of the biggest bunkering and oil storage stations of the world and with the Government and Private investments plan up to 2030, the whole country is gearing up to modernize services on an international platform.
We look forward to working with all partners that require access to our world-class JCI accredited healthcare platform, and continue to strive to deliver the highest quality of service both for the East and Northern Emirates as well as across the entire UAE and out at sea, where the need demands, to triage, stabilize and treat sailors in urgent need.
