A 'critical responsibility'
‘Operating a remote medical facility at sea presents various challenges that require professional management, and we are proud to have partners who confidently entrust us with such a critical responsibility,” said Peter Hult, CEO of Vikand. He added that the Vikand team provides customized medical services, the latest biomedical technology and world-class medical staff.
Full setup support
Vikand is generally contracted 18 months to two years before the launch of a new cruise line or vessel to support the entire setup of the on-board medical center. The company’s primary areas of focus include facility layout and design, equipment and formulary recommendations, development of policies and procedures, purchasing/logistical support and equipment installation.
Fort Lauderdale-based Vikand offers a range of healthcare service options, including a proprietary healthcare solution, a comprehensive biomedical and X-ray program, case and claims management, medical escorting and a customized wellness program that includes crew maintenance and loss prevention.
