I am proud to lead a multinational provider of quality consumer healthcare services in Africa and the Middle East. From a single branch in Egypt in 1979, we now have over 550 points of presence across Egypt, Sudan, Jordan and Nigeria — Africa’s most populous market and our newest expansion territory. We offer more than 2,000 international-standard diagnostics tests. In 2022, we performed over 32.7 million tests for over 8.7 million patients.
Our success stems from our unwavering commitment to quality and the provision of best-in-class diagnostic services. We are the sole operator of a College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited facility in Egypt, widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance globally, as well as the sole radiology venture to boast ACR (American College of Radiology) accreditation in Africa. Our investment in our people and in our technology continue to strengthen our brands and help us retain our greatest asset — the loyalty of our patient base. On top of this, we also boast several other prestigious accreditation from international and governmental bodies such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the Joint Commission International (JCI), the Jordanian Accreditation System (JAS), the Healthcare Accreditation Council (HCAC), the American College of Radiology (ACR), and the General Authority for Healthcare Accreditation and Regulation (GAHAR).
Looking ahead, I am confident we will continue to capitalize on compelling structural growth drivers in our key markets. These include large, rapidly-growing populations; a high prevalence of lifestyle-related medical conditions; and growing health consciousness among the patient populations we serve.
I am very optimistic about the growth prospects of our Group as we grow in our traditional markets, integrate new territories, and ramp up new service verticals. As we do so, our goal is simple: To create outstanding value for all of our shareholders and stakeholders — progress on which we will report here, on this website, in real time.
