ikigai Medical Centre’s holistic approach delivers comprehensive services tailored to your needs across multiple specialities. We are an entirely patient-first centre, prioritising your physical, mental, and emotional well-being in a welcoming, state-of-the-art facility equipped with the latest technologies.


Life Healthcare Group’s flagship showpiece—ikigai Medical Centre—follows nearly three decades of legacy. Beginning in 1996 as a single pharmacy unit and eventually driven by the need to make healthcare more accessible, affordable, and sustainable for people within and outside local communities, we expanded quickly. We now stand tall in the Emirati health landscape, having become the region’s largest pharmacy retail chain with over 300 units. We are also presently one of the biggest healthcare retailers in the UAE.

In redefining the UAE healthcare setup, we’ve strived to provide holistic care in all our endeavours. ikigai Medical Centre is an extension of this value in combination with a patient philosophy focused on achieving a good life via a unique care-delivery experience. As such, ikigai’s facility is an ultra-modern structure with the means to deliver personalised care of the highest order.

This care includes a seamless, hassle-free experience and access to the best doctors in their fields. Our physicians further emphasise our principle of total wellness, covering physical, mental, and emotional well-being. At ikigai, we believe in empowering people to take control of their health. At ikigai, you come first.

The ikigai Concept

ikigai—roughly meaning ‘reason for being’—is the Japanese concept of defining an individual’s worth at the intersection of their passion, talents, work, and what they offer the world. It is said that finding purpose through this balance can bring about fulfilment, happiness, and long life, giving a person a sense of self and connecting them better with the outside world.
ikigai Medical Centre has adopted this philosophy and translated it for a healthcare ecosystem. Our work is based on intersecting all aspects of one’s health to attain well-being: medical support, mental health, physical fitness, and a good diet. Our holistic take highlights all four elements harmoniously overlapping with each other. We aim to provide this balance to the people who step into our facility, helping them define their own sweet spot in the middle—their very own healthy lives.
