Commenting on receiving the award, Dr. Zulekha Daud, Founder and Managing Director of Zulekha Hospital, said, "We recognize there are global challenges affecting our operations at every level, from our employees to our patrons, communities in which we operate and we have designed our sustainability initiatives based on impacts on Workplace, Marketplace, Community and Environment and thanked the Government of Dubai for encouraging the corporate to go for the CSR activities."

"We at Zulekha Hospital view challenges such as water scarcity, climate change, economic disparity as interdependent - an improvement in one may positively affect outcomes in another. Similarly, a decline in one area may hamper progress in another." added Dr. Zulekha.

As a multinational company with strong local connections, we tackle these global challenges with local action. Our partnerships with NGOs, Government Agencies, Academic Institutions and community organizations give us insight into these evolving challenges."

In addition to pursuing better standards in healthcare, Zulekha Hospital is committed to the well-being of the society as a whole. The Hospital passionately supports the social initiatives with an aim to reach out and provide healthcare to the underprivileged.
