CHAIRMAN AND MANAGING DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

HEALTHCARE SHOULD BE ABOUT WELLNESS

VPS Healthcare has become a substantial enterprise with diverse assets in several countries. But our business is not only about building critical mass and growing revenues - we are determined to be a positive force wherever we operate. For example, in the Middle East we own a network of hospitals that need a steady throughput of patients to remain financially viable. But we also run an extensive occupational health service, and our mobile clinics take screening and testing into communities and workplaces, rather than waiting for them to develop problems. It may ultimately cost us, but we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure. We are the first private healthcare group to offer free mobile mammography in the UAE, and thousands of women have been screened. We have also conducted more than 165 free cardiac surgeries, and we work with the Red Crescent's medevac services - bringing patients from strife-torn areas for treatment.

Our philosophy relates to the needs of a growing and ageing global population. By 2050, the world's population will rise to 9.7 billion, with 2 billion over the age of 60. Clearly, the need is for high-quality healthcare that is accessible, affordable, and sustainable.

VPS Healthcare is itself maturing. We have grown rapidly in the 10 years of our existence and are still growing - regionally, internationally and in diversity of activities.
