From its beginnings in 2001 as a supplier of medical equipment and pharmaceutical products to its sister company, American Hospital Dubai, to catering to the needs of the entire UAE market in this domain, Unimed’s growth and success are pivoted on a singular aim: To be the preferred and most trusted supplier and distributor of medical equipment and pharmaceutical products.
Unimed’s integrity and fair practices and its reputation for quality and reliability have driven its growth and expansion and today, Unimed delivers to 224 hospitals and clinics, 776 pharmacies, and 143 wholesale companies across the UAE.
The company deals in all types of medical equipment and pharmaceutical products, registered and non-registered, inclusive of treatment medications, supplemental and cosmetic ranges.
Procuring supplies from both international and local manufacturers for branded and generic products, Unimed plays a significant role in contributing to UAE’s growing pharmaceutical industry. Most of the medical equipment is imported from abroad, but Unimed also supports local manufacturers for medical furniture and basic needs.
