Dubai, UAE, 22 April, 2015: Zulekha Hospitals received the prestigious Dubai Quality Award from H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at the 21st Business Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Upon receiving the award during Monday’s awards ceremony at the Sheikh Rashid Ballroom, Dubai World Trade Centre, Dr Zulekha Daud said: “It is our honour to receive this recognition from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed once again. The award demonstrates our commitment to providing high quality healthcare to our patients and society at large.
“Zulekha Hospitals’ practices and processes have proven to be sustainable and we have worked hard towards benchmarking ourselves to local and international standards in healthcare in order to continually improve on our service and care models.”

Zanubia Shams said: “I pass on my congratulations to the Zulekha team on this prestigious achievement and look back on the journey to winning the award with satisfaction and fulfilment.  
The RADAR approach of the Excellence Model and the feedback of the DQA assessors has helped us to identify areas for improvement and refinement, providing value to our patients and stakeholders as well as engaging our staff to provide the best possible quality care to patients.”  

Taher Shams, President of Zulekha Hospitals, said: “The Dubai Quality Award is the most prestigious recognition of its kind in the region and winning it makes us feel happy and proud.

“We applied for the award for a second time in order to have the sustainability of our processes assessed. The feedback received from the assessors was very helpful in improving and standardising our systems and processes. As an organisation, we continuously strive towards living our promise that “Your health matters”. Addressing patients’ needs and providing them with the best in healthcare has been a constant endeavour at Zulekha hospitals.”
