Swan Hellenic selects Vikand for medical management

Swan Hellenic entered into a multiyear agreement with Vikand Solutions to manage medical operations aboard its expedition ships.

'While invisible to our clients, having Vikand manage all the medical operations aboard our new five-star PC 5 ice-class expedition vessels SH Minerva and SH Vega means we can be sure to provide medical protection and care of the highest standards in any eventuality,' Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito said.

Comprehensive approach

Vikand's comprehensive approach to healthcare includes medical facility operations, outbreak prevention and mitigation, emergency support, formulary and biomedical equipment management, medical staffing and ongoing consultation.

'... Vikand is working closely with Swan Hellenic to ensure a safe environment that completes the many measures it employs to create unforgettable guest experiences,' said Tom Brady, VP global partner relationships, Vikand.

He added: 'Vikand is excited to partner with Swan Hellenic, complementing the visible aspects of Swan Hellenic’s on-board and exotic destination experiences in a behind-the-scenes role with an all-encompassing focus on healthcare systems and the required human resources to provide impeccable care should the need arise.'
