Sphera participates in the new firm to manage King Faisal Hospital

Sphera will provide management services, putting technology at the center of its strategy to deliver the highest quality medical care.

The Government has signed a deal with Oshen Healthcare Rwanda Limited that will see the latter manage King Faisal Hospital with the collaboration of Sphera Health Management. The Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning and the Rwanda Development Board signed the concession agreement on behalf of the Government, expected to facilitate maintenance, upgrading of hospital infrastructure, financing new investments, and operating services that the hospital provides.

Under the deal, Oshen Healthcare Rwanda Limited is also expected to turn the hospital into a multi-specialty regional referral facility. The firm will invest Euro 21 million for the next five years, according to the deal.

The concession is based on performance indicators such as the introduction of new procedures, equipment and latest technologies, improvement of management structure and offering training to local professionals in medicine and nursing as well as maintaining the hospital’s conformity to international standards.

“It’s a challenge we are relishing. We have received the right support from government and with the right people we look forward to transforming King Faisal Hospital into a regional referral hospital,” said Alex Lifschitz, the vice-president of Sphera Global Health Care.

Sphera and Oshen Healthcare combine digital solutions and asset-based health care delivery experience.
