Before we take a break for the holidays, we cannot help but look back on a year that stirred everything.
Covid-19, you were not welcome but you forced us to dare more.
At Sahlgrenska International Care, we transformed the recruitment process to our Specialist Training Programs making it all digital.
15 doctors and dentists could continue our Specialist Training Program uninterrupted.
60 international patients were treated at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, in 5 medical areas. 10-12 containers with medical equipment aid was shipped.
But even if borders closed, the doors remained open for international patients referred within our agreements with other countries where the care was deemed necessary.
The road to the recipients of our medical equipment aid donations became more bumpy, but by entering new partnerships with several aid organizations we ensured that it could reach countries in need.
Despite the 50 % decrease in number of international patients and aid, we started off 2021 with a strong financial result.
