GE Healthcare in Saudi Arabia

About 90 percent of Saudi hospitals deploy GE technology. GE is proud to support the operational needs of the Saudi Ministry of Health, one of the largest public health authorities in the Middle East, with more than 2,000 health centers across the Kingdom.

Dedication to Fighting Cancer in the Kingdom The Ministry of Health has made early detection and advanced treatment of breast cancer, one of the leading causes of death among women cancer patients in the Kingdom, a priority. GE is proud to support the National Breast Cancer Screening Program in the Kingdom, serving as a partner to the Ministry of Health for over two years in the design, plan and launch of the program. There are now three healthymagination mobile mammography clinics across Riyadh, with more than 10,000 patients screened to date.

Empowering the Kingdom through Education To help meet the healthcare sector goals of Saudi Arabia’s Ninth Development Plan and the Ministry of Health’s ‘Patient First’ strategy, GE is partnering with the Ministry to further boost the healthcare sector competencies with a focus on training. The development of a dedicated Healthcare Skills and Training Institute in partnership with King Fahad Medical City will expand the training partnership. The Institute will be the first of its kind in the Kingdom, offering technical, clinical and healthcare management courses.
