Jeffrey Immelt Visits Saudi Arabia to Strengthen Commitment
GE has further underscored its commitment to strengthen and sustain a robust healthcare delivery model in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through partnerships with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health, under its healthymagination initiative, to create better health for more people by expanding access to quality care at lower costs.
This was marked with the recent visit of Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Immelt to the Kingdom.
Immelt explained the company’s healthcare strategies at a special event organized in Riyadh, in the presence of Dr. Mohammed Khosheim, Deputy Minister of Health, Planning & Development.
GE has been working closely with the Ministry of Health to help build a sustainable healthcare model under healthymagination with the partnership encompassing a wide range of initiatives, which include a Healthcare Learning Institute, advisory services on hospital workflow and training programs. In order to ensure that hospitals under the Ministry of Health offer the highest technological quality of care, GE Healthcare has trained more than 1,300 MoH healthcare professionals. GE has also helped transform the operation rooms of eight MoH hospitals and six Nation Guard Health Affairs Departments through tools and methodologies that are all aimed to enhance business and management efficiencies. GE Healthcare has also invested in a strategic country service support center in Riyadh that is strongly supported by experienced local service & technical support teams resulting in quicker customer response times, thereby minimizing equipment downtime.
Under the company’s healthymagination consumer outreach campaign, GE will use its website www.healthymagination.me and its social networking platforms such as Twitter (http://twitter.com/Li9o7etna) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/healthymagination.me) to raise consumer awareness and provide education around healthier living.
