Sheba Medical Center Signs Partnership Agreement with Bahrain’s American Mission Hospital (AMH)
Recently, AMH officials and Sheba representatives met at the C3 US-Arab Healthcare and Business Summit in New York City to formalize the new partnership on the eve of the second anniversary of the Abraham Accords, which normalized diplomatic relations between Israel and Persian Gulf countries, including Bahrain, in 2020.
“Healthcare is a pathway to peace and prosperity,” says Yoel Har-Even, Director of Sheba Global. “We can all unite for the common goal of promoting health and combating the ailments from which mankind suffers.”
Bahrain’s largest private medical center, AMH will open its new $66M flagship facility later this year. The agreement with Sheba will provide it with professional training on the latest technological innovations in a bid to improve medical care in the region and reach a greater number of patients through telemedicine services.
“We’re looking to Sheba to add competencies and skills beyond what we already have in Bahrain,” said Dr. George Cheriyan, CEO of AMH, “There will be a free flow of physicians and surgeons back and forth.”
The partnership with AMH is one of several collaborations that Sheba has launched in the Persian Gulf, including an agreement with UAE’s Al Tadawi Healthcare group, providing remote consultations with Sheba’s doctors to local government employees, and a partnership with Dubai-based Medcare Women and Children Hospital to train obstetricians and gynecologists.
