Early life and education[edit]

After completing his formative education in the United Arab Emirates, Almurooshid continued his studies in the United States, where he graduated from Salem Teikyo University, West Virginia in 1994 with a bachelor's in business administration and marketing.

Department of Economic Development (1994–2001)[edit]

Following his graduation, Almurooshid returned to Dubai where he took his first position in the public sector in the Department of Economic Development. Working within the compliance department he quickly rose to become the head of the newly established Commercial Protection Unit (CPU), and soon after, the head of the Corporate Service Centre. During his time with the CPU, Almurooshid worked closely with major corporations where he earned a reputation for his effective campaigning against issues such as piracy and counterfeit goods.

With a primary focus on supporting international companies and brands successfully establish themselves in the UAE; Almurooshid was part of the team that helped to cultivate a business friendly environment for corporations arriving in the region. Working not only among companies, but also sectors, Almurooshid was also key in establishing initiatives such as the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) in 1996 and Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS). In 1998 he was appointed as head of compliance, and became responsible for overseeing a team of seventy.

Almurooshid references his time with the economic department as an inspirational period of his development that helped to shape his on going career, and indeed, the department has been the foundry for many Emirati business figures and government officials.

Executive Council of the Government of Dubai[edit]

Almurooshid was one of the first members of the Executive Council of Dubai, established under Law No.3 issued in 2003 by the royal decree of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, in order address the Emirate's security, public services and economic and social progress. Almurooshid served as a founding member and vice chairman of the Executive Council’s Social Committee, member of the Budgetary Committee and member of the Safety and Justice Committee from 2007 till 2010.

Dubai Health and Medical Services (DOHMS) (2002–2007)[edit]

Almurooshid was officially appointed director general of the Dubai Health and Medical Services (DOHMS) on 9 March 2002. As director general, Almurooshid, focused his administration towards increasing the integration of technology into national medical services as well as ensuring sufficient medical care for all, in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and under the directive of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and President of DOHMS.

Dubai Cord Blood & Research Centre (2006)[edit]

Established in 2006, Almurooshid’s team opened the Dubai Cord Blood & Research Centre on 6 June 2006 making it the first and only centre of its kind in the United Arab Emirates. As a licensed government entity, the centre was established to support the ongoing development of stem cell research as well as developing a more substantial registry of stem cells for the country.

Rashid Hospital Trauma Centre (2006)[edit]

Since taking the position as director general of DOHMS, Almurooshid led his team in the creation and development of Rashid Hospital Trauma Centre, the only fully integrated emergency department and regional facility dedicated to emergency and trauma care in the MENA region. With 130 beds, it operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and receives approximately 180,000 cases per annum, catering for a variety of acute emergencies such as medical, surgical, cardiac and neurology. The facility is also equipped with ten ambulance bays, two helipads, four state of the art resuscitation units, six operating theatres and the first STAT scanner in the region, and has an active emergency medicine residency training programme in support of the educational objectives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Dubai Health Authority (DHA)(2007–2012)[edit]

In June 2007, the issue of Law No.13 by the royal decree of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum transformed the DOHMS into the Dubai Health Authority (DHA). A separate decree thenselected Almurooshid as the most suitable candidate to again lead Dubai’s health care programme under the direction of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and chairman of the Executive Council of the Government of Dubai, and was subsequently appointed as director general of the Dubai Health Authority.

Primary Health Care Facilities[edit]

Almurooshid’s tenure as director general emphasised the realisation of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to provide primary health care for all citizens of the UAE. To this end, three primary healthcare centres, strategically placed to offer the maximum amount of coverage to their respective communities and costing approximately $19 million each were established in Nad Al Hammar, Al Mizhar and Al Barsha. Today, the DHA has 14 primary healthcare centres, or one centre for every 30,000 individuals in the Emirate.[1]

Dubai Diabetic Centre (2012)[edit]

Diabetes is a widespread issue in the United Arab Emirates with an estimated 20% of the population suffering from the disease. In response to this, during his tenure as the director general of DOHMS, Almurooshid signed a memorandum of understanding with Joslin Diabetes Center and Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians,[2] to work together to set up an advanced diabetes centre in the Latifa Hospital in Dubai.

In June 2012, Almurooshid then announced the launch of a project for a new, state-of-the-art facility at Dubai Diabetic Centre,[3] offering two and a half times the capacity of the existing centre to 20,000 square feet. Located on 2 December St, additional features included a paediatric endocrinology service, offering a more ‘child friendly’ experience to children under the age of 18 who suffer from the disease.

The centre also provided extensive podiatry, which is recognised as a highly important aspect of diabetes management. Almurooshid also introduced a new training programme for ten primary health care physicians from the DHA, bolstering the authority’s capacity for diabetes care and management.

Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital (2008, estimated completion 2014)[edit]

Considered by Almurooshid as one of the most important projects overseen by his administration, the Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital[1] was ordered by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum as a gift to the children of the UAE to celebrate his daughter Al Jalila’s first birthday on Tuesday 2 December 2008. The Dubai hospital covers a built up area of 76,500 square metres and is equipped with 200 beds and facilities such as a paediatric trauma, heart and transplant centres, coupled with surgical departments, outpatient facilities, dialysis equipment and oncology care.[4] Al Jalila Hospital has been recognised as the first facility of its kind in the region, designed on the basis of extensive research and visits to globally renowned paediatric facilities in order to ensure that visiting children will be made to feel more at ease and less intimidated by their surroundings. The hospital is already the recipient of two awards, namely the Future Projects Health Award, presented at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona (2009) and for Best Sustainable Hospital Projects at the 2011 Hospital Build Awards.

Dubai Rehabilitation Centre[edit]

Offering multi-disciplinary modalities, Almurooshid’s team successfully delivered the country’s first fully functional rehabilitation centre in August 2012,[5] in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to offer patients the option to fully recover post-surgery in country. The centre offers care to patients aged 14 years or above, and is also designed to cater for those with disabilities, sports injury and geriatric care. It was decided that the facility would be managed by the South Korea-based Bobath Memorial Hospital,[6] a specialised medical centre with extensive experience in the field of rehabilitation. The facility has a capacity of 30 inpatients and between 80-120 outpatient cases per day.

Establishment and restructuring of Dubai's ambulatory services[edit]

Almurooshid led the joint committee between the Unified Ambulance Centre in Dubai that was created under Law No.13 of 2006[7] between DOHMS and the Dubai Police General Headquarters.

By royal decree, the Centre of Ambulance Services (CAS) was restructured under Law No. 17 of 2007,[7] issued by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, replacing the Unified Ambulance Centre in Dubai. Almurooshid’s team were responsible for preparing, developing and applying the necessary policies that provided ambulance services not only in response to emergencies, but also providing patient mobility for the elderly, injured or disabled. The centre was also charged with operating a centralised control centre within the Emirate of Dubai. Today DCAS had a fleet of 177 ambulance vehicles, three mass casualty buses and 68 ground stations.

Dubai’s ambulatory services were restructured again by Almurooshid under the directive of Law No. 15 of 2010, issued by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, as Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS).

Appointed directly by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, Almurooshid became the first chairman of DCAS when it opened in May 2012,[8] and was further inaugurated in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Worth $12.25 million, the facility covers 270,000 square feet and includes training facilities designed specifically for Ambulance Services.

Accreditation by the Joint Commission International (JCI)[edit]

In response to orders from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Dubai Health Authority, under the leadership of Almurooshid, had sought the accreditation from the Joint Commission International (JCI), and in March 2007 the Thalassaemia Centre (winner of the Outstanding Clinical Department in the Public Sector Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Medical Sciences in 2006), became the first public entity in the Middle East to receive such accreditation. The following year Rashid, Dubai and Al Wasl hospitals, were acknowledged with the same credentials.

One of the more remarkable acknowledgements from the JCI came in 2010 when the Airport Medical Centre, located at Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport was given accreditation for ambulatory standards, making it the first airport clinic to receive such recognition. Almurooshid presented the award to His Highness Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of Dubai Aviation City Corporation and chairman of Emirates Airline.
