Careem offers discounts to patients, visitors of Dr. Sulaiman Al-Habib Medical Group

Careem, the largest provider of ride-hailing in Saudi Arabia, has signed an agreement with Dr. Sulaiman Al-Habib Medical Group (HMG), to provide its services for the patients and visitors of the group's hospitals and pharmacies.
The move is seen as a step that would enhance the role of the national companies in achieving the strategic objectives of medical care in Saudi Arabia, and is a first initiative in its field.
The agreement was signed in the presence of Nasser Al-Haqbani, president and CEO of Dr. Sulaiman Al-Habib Medical Group; and Abdulla Elyas, chairman and co-founder of Careem.
Patients and visitors of the group’s hospitals and pharmacies will have a discount on the trips provided by Careem, from and to hospitals and pharmacies of HMG, in all of its branches in Riyadh and Qassim. Such a service will greatly assist saving patients’ time and resolve existing transport challenges, according to a joint statement released by Careem and HMG.
Careem Chairman Elyas said the partnership will “help in extending the services of Careem to a sector that has an immense importance.”
He added: “This partnership will support in realizing our bigger objectives, especially with a leading partner such as HMG, that is classified as one of the most important medical groups in the Middle East, as it develops and operates more than 20 medical facilities across Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain. HMG is a leader in many initiatives that always aim to provide the best medical service offering to its patients.”
HMG President and CEO Al-Haqbani said their strategic vision is to drive the technological transformation and advancement of health care in order to provide the best services to their patients. He said the partnership boosts transportation services for the patients to have safe and convenient journeys to and from their hospitals and pharmacies.
This, Al-Haqabani said, has encouraged them to work on the collaboration with Careem “that is one of the most important companies in ride-hailing in Saudi Arabia.”
