Gabriela (Gabi) Muntean, the founder and CEO of MediCorp hails from Romania where she graduated with a BS Nursing degree. In her previous position as Director of Infection Control at the King Abdalla University Hospital in Amman, Jordan, Gabi established a firm interest in the business arm of the healthcare industry.
In 2001, Gabi started her own company as a distributor of environmental cleaning products in Jordan which quickly expanded into Baghdad, Iraq in 2003. During this war-torn period, Gabi saw an opportunity to assist the ongoing medical crisis by supplying the US Army hospital with sorely needed medical supplies and equipment. With a dire need for medical personnel, the MediCorp solution to support the army with international civilian sub-contractors to the military camps, kick-started the full spectrum services delivery in Iraq, from pre-employment medical check-ups to in-country surgeries.
At this time a medical facility catering for 350,000 civilian contractors was built – a first for the company which quickly expanded as more international companies moved into Iraq. This meant that the medical services expanded as well to include dental clinics, medical evacuations, laboratory services and day-care units. By the end of the war MediCorp Gulf boasted more than 170 medical staff in country.
In 2012, under the leadership and vision of Gabi, the MediCorp FZCO company was registered in Dubai, in support of the operations in Iraq. It also led to the establishment of the MediCorp Gulf policlinic in Dubai.
Gabi is a recognized leader in the healthcare industry with a clear vision of the growth and direction taken by the company.
