Industry: Healthcare

Company: Global Hawk

Designation: Owner and Founder

A healthcare entrepreneur and pioneer, Dr Nawab Shafi Ul Mulk has forged a path in medical innovation, particularly in the field of teleradiology, where his achievements have received an unending supply of awards and recognition in recent years.

His journey began with the establishment of Global Hawk and the development of his Global Hawk Telemedicine and Teleradiology technologies. From here, he developed the Global Hawk Imaging & Diagnostic Centres which, from a single branch in Deira, grew rapidly into a chain with multiple locations – all with state-of-the-art radiological technology, the main imaging modalities, including open and closed MRI, CT scan, CBCT, 2D, 3D/4D ultrasound, digital mammography and bone densitometer, as well as top-rated clinical laboratory diagnostic devices.

The centres are today considered as one of the best in terms of high-quality diagnostic imaging services and patient-centred care. With its goal of becoming a dedicated healthcare provider and imaging resource and research centre across the globe, GHID serves as a gateway to international-expert- standard diagnostic opinions – while also streamlining management and investigative recommendations.

Dr Mulk’s company has spearheaded an AED250m expansion plan, which includes a chain of Global Hawk Diagnostic Centres with dedicated PET-CT/MRI and Cyclotron units across the GCC, India and Eastern Europe, and a chain of Global Hawk multi-speciality Polyclinics and Medical Centres. The group is also looking to start a 50-bed Mulk oncology charity hospital in India, as well as Mulk speciality hospitals in the UAE.

In 2017, Dr Mulk scored a double win at the Annual Health Awards in the UAE, securing the Distinguished Achiever award in Healthcare and Innovative Technology. The same year he was also named World Healthcare Innovative Entrepreneur of the year by the Global Association of Physicians of Indian Origin and the Indian Business Excellence Awards from HH Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan.

Dr Mulk and his company have also been honoured and lauded with the “World’s Greatest Brands” and “World’s Greatest Leader” awards in 2017.


I feel blessed to have embarked on this journey with the support of excellent and dedicated staff, savouring the challenges each day brings in a healthcare entrepreneur’s life”
