The $5 million deal was struck at
Arab Health 2001 and reinforces the 10 year alliance between the Saudi
German Hospitals Group and Agilent Technologies.

Technologies "The Agilent Patient Care System was created to
provide an evolving suite of integrated patient monitoring systems,
clinical information management solutions, and communications and
networking tools." He went on to add, "The Agilent Patient
Care System is designed to provide higher-quality care, contain costs,
and manage change. Agilent solutions are all backed by world-class

The Saudi German Hospital (SGH), Jeddah was established in 1988 as a
modern general hospital of 217 beds capacity, with state of the art
diagnostic and therapeutic facilities manned by a team of most
competent Doctors, Nurses, Paramedical and Support staff. The
objective was to provide the best medical care available in the region
of Saudi Arabia, Gulf, Yemen, and South Eastern areas of Africa.
"The vision of the SGH group is to open two new hospitals in
Saudi Arabia within the next 6 months and to open a further 3
hospitals throughout the Middle East." Said Dr. Alaa El Din El
Sherif Medical Director, SGH. "To be successful at this we need
the ultimate in medical equipment and to that end Agilent Technologies
share our vision"
