International SOS Establishes A Strategic Alliance With RMSI
|International SOS has announced the establishment of a strategic alliance with RMSI, a specialist in the provision of medical services for hostile environments. This strategic alliance will align the service delivery resources with RMSI becoming the sole provider for International SOS when delivering medical services in hostile environments. Cooperation in marketing and distribution will ensure that RMSI services are made available extensively to potential clients, as well as provide International SOS clients with a seamless solution that leverages the expertise of RMSI in hostile locations alongside the global capabilities of International SOS.|
Laurent Sabourin, International SOS' Managing Director explains the rationale behind the alliance as, "Our clients expect us to be there for them globally. And while we have 25 years of experience in providing high quality healthcare in challenging locations, we realize that areas where there is an active armed conflict can present unique challenges. Our partnership with RMSI is another step toward our commitment to clients, offering them specialist resources and expertise needed to keep their global workforce healthy and secure wherever they work or travel."
RMSI will continue to operate as a fully independent entity under the leadership of Robert Lamb, CEO, and its existing team of executives. Robert Lamb shares, "We are delighted to partner with the industry leader in international healthcare services. The worldwide reach and specialized operating systems of International SOS will allow RMSI to expand its capabilities on a various fronts. International SOS and RMSI have chosen to work together as we believe that our companies share many of the same values; namely integrity and a strong commitment to providing the highest quality of medical service to our clients."
