Aster DM Healthcare is the new name spearheading a corollary of expansion, integrating the current brands of Hospital, Clinics, Pharmacies, Opticals, Healthshop, and diagnostic centres at numerous locations under one roof in GCC and India.

Aster pharmacies are a part of Aster DM Healthcare. The pharmacy network previously known by its popular brand name ‘Medshop’ has taken the new identity of ‘Aster’ since 2010.

Backed by more than 2 decades of experience in pharmaceutical retailing, Aster Pharmacies are designed to be a one-stop-shop offering premium products with professional service and personal care at the best prices in a pleasant ambiance.

Our success story began with a modest beginning way back in 1989 with the opening of the first pharmacy, and there has been no turning back ever since. As the years went by, more outlets were added to our family and the network evolved to its existing size. We inaugurated our 100th pharmacy in April 2014 at the Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) and aim at opening over 300 outlets by 2017, thus having positioned ourselves as the largest retail pharmacy chain in the UAE. Aster Pharmacy is active not just in the UAE, but also in Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Jordan.

Aster Pharmacy has received several awards and recognitions including a fourth time win of Best Pharmacy Award (2010, 2011, 2014 and 2015) by Dubai Service Excellence Scheme. In the GCC states, Medcare Hospital and Aster pharmacy received quality and service awards, respectively, from the Dubai Department of Economic Development in 2014. In 2015, Aster Pharmacy received the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award and given the ‘Superbrand’ status by the UAE Superbrands Council.

In addition to providing easy availability of medicines and products, Aster Pharmacies have qualified staff who can guide costumers with diet, nutrition and medical equipment. Our product range includes curative, nutritive, and baby products, lifestyle, wellness and rehabilitation products, FMCG products, cosmetics, personal and home care products.
Aster Pharmacy focuses around a customer-centric approach, helping us preserve a passion to serve and compassion to care. We believe in rewarding our customers and value loyalty by providing services like ATM (Any Time Medicine) in addition to offers, schemes and promotions updated by emails and phones, ensuring ‘much more than medicines’.
