German conglomerate Siemens is pushing for a stake in the local public health sector, according to a statement yesterday from the Ministry of Public Health.
The three-person delegation met recently with Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence and a high-level team with the former rolling out its tentative plans which they felt can help accelerate modernisation plans for the public health system.
“Our purpose is to make health care providers succeed (and to) do more with less,” Roberto Tovar, Business Partner Manager at Siemens Healthcare said during the meeting at the Lot 1, Brickdam headquarters of the MOPH.
Tovar assured the MOPH delegation that the German conglomerate is not opportunistically angling to maximise profits from the much-anticipated transition to a petro-based economy following huge offshore oil finds by the American giant, Exxon Mobil here.
“We want to be part of a society we get there to boost social impact,” Daniel Fernandez, Siemens CEO South America (excluding Brazil), assured during the talks.
