Did Any of Your Clients Expand to the MENA Region?

Yes, of course. We would like to highlight the experience of one of our clients expanding to the MENA region in the healthcare industry. Global Health Services Network (GHSN) helps governments and private entities to plan, develop and operate high quality, efficient and patient centered hospitals. Patricia Williams, CEO of GHSN, recounts her experience below.

“Our very first experience in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region was in a hospital planning project in the United Arab Emirates. This was quickly followed by experiences in Libya, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Egypt, Algeria and Iraq among others. Each experience strengthened our love of the region and of the collaborative spirit of those we’ve had the privilege to work with. 

I believe our approach resonates with the communities we serve in the Middle East, because of the importance that is placed on relationships and hospitality in this part of the world.  Patient-centered care means focusing on what is best for the customer – in our case, patients; taking the time to understand them, address their needs and build relationships with them. The experiences we’ve had working in the Middle East very much align with this culture of understanding others, building relationships and trust with them.  

For us, it’s been important to have the same approach with our local clients. Oftentimes in the U.S. we focus on rushing things… “closing the deal”, “making the sale”. We frequently hear that “time is money”. We’ve learned in our work in the Middle East to be less transactional; we’ve slowed down, shared experiences, met families, and built trust. Things may not necessarily happen as quickly but that’s ok because when they do happen, they are based on a solid and trusting relationship and friendship that is much richer and substantive as well as long lasting.”
