In an unprecedented move, the first integrated healthcare services consortium is launched in Egypt, in a step to support the healthcare sector’s investors. Egypt has a highly pluralistic health care system, with many different public and private providers and financing agents. Healthcare services in Egypt are currently managed, financed, and provided by agencies in all three sectors of the economy, government, parastatal, and private.

In 2020, the Egyptian government signaled that private sector medical providers will play an important role in the universal health care program, which received a USD 400 mn injection from the World Bank. This made industry players bullish about the potential of Egypt’s private health care system, which has grown steadily in recent years.

This consortium works together to help Egypt’s healthcare sector’s investors to reach their goals and to guide them by involving all stakeholders from the beginning of the project to work on the same goals throughout the project’s lifetime, which results in the client getting the highest quality and profit and ROI.

It works with investors starting from preparing the feasibility study, passing through all the design and engineering stages, ending by operating the building; to lead the investor to conform the project with all local and international specifications at the lowest cost and highest quality and profit.
