Siemens, Siemens Energy contribute to Egypt’s healthcare system with new smart clinic

The clinic is a collaboration between Siemens, Siemens Energy, Siemens Healthineers and the German non-profit Global Innovation Gathering. The group donated equipment to the Egypt-based non-governmental organization Masr Bela Marad (Egypt Without Disease), which will run it. 
The clinic will provide services to people in one of the most populated areas of Greater Cairo, as well as facilitate Covid-19 diagnostic services. Patients will have access to specialized gynecology, internal medicine, pediatrics, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and dentistry departments. Siemens donated medical equipment, including a mobile x-ray system, ultrasound, and laboratory devices from Siemens Healthineers, as well as a digital back-up power system. 
“Our mega power project, executed in close partnership with Egypt, is the benchmark for many countries in the world. This is where performance, dedication and societal service have come together in a unique way,” said Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG, who attended the launch on October 14. “This smart clinic is now a token to the Egyptian people. It will provide crucial primary healthcare services, and is the latest example of our global effort to support societies in which we operate.” 
The Egypt Smart Clinic joins other Siemens facilities that are already treating patients in Jordan, Iraq and Colombia. The initiative is part of the company’s corporate citizenship program, which donates about 20 million euros annually to further the sustainable development of the regions in which Siemens operates. 
“Health care is essential to social justice and equity, and we thank Siemens for its donation that will help us provide better care in the Shoubra El Kheima province,” said Dr. Lamia Kamal, Masr Bela Marad’s head of the board of trustees. “Our mission is stated in our name – to rid Egypt of illness – and this smart clinic will move us toward our goal by treating tens of thousands of patients for many years to come.”  
Geraldine de Bastion, Founder and CEO of GIG – Global Innovation Gathering, said: “This smart clinic is an example of participatory and inclusive development where all partners worked together for a common goal, to improve access to health at a time when it’s needed even more – and thus contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.”
