Ca­reem of­fers dis­counts to pa­tients, vis­i­tors of Dr. Su­laiman Al-Habib Med­i­cal Group

Arab News - - CORPORATE PR -

Ca­reem, the largest provider of ride-hail­ing trans­port ser­vices in Saudi Ara­bia, has signed an agree­ment with Dr. Su­laiman Al-Habib Med­i­cal Group (HMG), to pro­vide its ser­vices for the pa­tients and vis­i­tors of the group's hospi­tals and phar­ma­cies.

The move is seen as a step that would en­hance the role of na­tional com­pa­nies in achiev­ing the strate­gic ob­jec­tives of med­i­cal care in Saudi Ara­bia, and is a first ini­tia­tive in its field.

The agree­ment was signed in the pres­ence of Nasser Al-Haqbani, pres­i­dent and CEO of Dr. Su­laiman Al-Habib Med­i­cal Group, and Ab­dulla Elyas, chair­man and co-founder of Ca­reem.

Pa­tients and vis­i­tors of the group’s hospi­tals and phar­ma­cies will have a dis­count on the trips pro­vided by Ca­reem, to and from hospi­tals and phar­ma­cies of HMG, in all of its branches in Riyadh and Qas­sim. Such a ser­vice will greatly as­sist sav­ing pa­tients’ time and resolve ex­ist­ing trans­port chal­lenges, ac­cord­ing to a joint state­ment re­leased by Ca­reem and HMG.

Ca­reem Chair­man Elyas said the part­ner­ship will “help in ex­tend­ing the ser­vices of Ca­reem to a sec­tor that has an im­mense im­por­tance.”

He added: “This part­ner­ship will sup­port in re­al­iz­ing our big­ger ob­jec­tives, es­pe­cially with a lead­ing part­ner such as HMG, that is clas­si­fied as one of the most im­por­tant med­i­cal groups in the Mid­dle East, as it de­vel­ops and op­er­ates more than 20 med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties across Saudi Ara­bia, the UAE and Bahrain. HMG is a leader in many ini­tia­tives that al­ways aim to pro­vide the best med­i­cal ser­vice of­fer­ing to its pa­tients.”

HMG Pres­i­dent and CEO Al-Haqbani said their strate­gic vi­sion is to drive the tech­no­log­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion and ad­vance­ment of health care in or­der to pro­vide the best ser­vices to their pa­tients. He said the part­ner­ship boosts trans­porta­tion ser­vices for the pa­tients to have safe and con­ve­nient jour­neys to and from their hospi­tals and phar­ma­cies.

This, Al-Haqa­bani said, has en­cour­aged them to work on the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ca­reem “that is one of the most im­por­tant com­pa­nies in ride-hail­ing in Saudi Ara­bia.”
