Chairperson of Dubai Healthcare City Authority (DHCA) HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, today announced the appointment of Dr. Amer Al Zarooni as the Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Healthcare City Medical (DHCM), a new cluster that oversees the healthcare facilities under DHCA, including the Dubai Dental Clinic, Dubai Bone and Joint Centre, Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital, and upon completion, the Mohammed Bin Rashid University Hospital. He will assume his new role at DHCA on February 1st.

Dr. Al Zarooni has over 13 years of solid experience in healthcare, having previously held the positions of Chief Medical Officer of the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Petroleum Operations – Medical Division and Director of Medical Affairs Department at Hatta Hospital, as well as Director of Airport Medical Center at Rashid Hospital.

Dr. Al Zarooni graduated from The Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (RCSI) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Medicine and a Bachelor’s Degree in Surgery. He later obtained his Masters of Science in Healthcare Management from RCSI in Dubai, and is currently studying for his Doctor of Business Administration at the SBS Swiss Business School (Dubai & Zurich).

“I am very happy to welcome Dr. Al Zarooni to the DHCA Team as the CEO of Dubai Healthcare City Medical (DHCM),” stated HRH Princess Haya. “Dr. Al Zarooni has an exceptional mix of skill sets and combines experience in both the government healthcare sector and corporate sector, in addition to his management skills, and professional reputation that will add tremendous value to DHCA. I also know that with his appointment, we now have one of the most exciting teams of young Emirati CEO’s, including Dr. Ramadan Al Blooshi, Dr. Amer Sharif, Bader Hareb, Professor Sehamuddin Galadari and Dr. Abdulkareem Al Olama. It is so exciting to see this team now completed, and I am sure they will deliver HH Sheikh Mohammed’s vision for Dubai Healthcare City.”

Dr. Al Zarooni will ultimately be responsible for all the hospitals within DHCA under the Dubai Healthcare City Medical cluster. As part of his role, he will outline and communicate DHCM’s strategic direction, and at the same time, oversee the overall business operations, and day-to-day management. DHCM , under his guidance, will be audited and regulated by Dubai Healthcare City Authority - Regulation (DHCR), along with the other members. 

Reporting to the newly appointed Representative of the Chairperson of DHCA, Mr. Khalid Al Sheikh Al Shamsi, Dr. Al Zarooni will also be responsible for running and implementing the policies and strategies adopted by the DHCA Board of Directors, ensuring that DHCM complies with all relevant laws and governance principles. 

HRH Princess Haya said, “Dr. Al Zarooni has an impeccable reputation  and is respected by all of his colleagues in the medical community. It’s an absolute honor to welcome him to our team.”
