UAE – Response Plus Medical (RPM) has concluded its acquisition of Prometheus Medical, a healthcare training and consultancy services company based in the United Kingdom.
The acquisition of Prometheus represents a significant milestone for RPM as it strives to emerge as one of the leading global providers of pre-hospital services.
What’s more, the acquisition follows RPM’s goal to go fully digital across all its subsidiaries in the UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In a press release, Dr. Rohil Raghavan, Chief Executive Officer of Response Plus Medical, said: “We eagerly anticipate integrating Prometheus’s expertise into our offerings as part of our ongoing mission to deliver exceptional healthcare solutions.”
Dr. Rohil Raghavan reinforced the importance of this acquisition in implementing the company’s global expansion strategy.
He highlighted that the acquisition further solidifies RPM’s position as the preferred healthcare provider for leading energy and defense entities worldwide.
“The strategic acquisition of Prometheus enhances our capability to deliver top-tier healthcare services to valued clients in diverse and innovative fields and expands our global footprint,” outlined Dr. Rohil Raghavan.
By acquiring Prometheus, RPM is set to strengthen its training capabilities while expanding its portfolio to cover health consultancy for emergency preparedness and response.
It is worth mentioning that Prometheus is a part of Safeguard Medical, a global provider of innovative emergency medical technologies, and specialized training for first responders.
Since its inception in 2005, Prometheus has focused on equipping combat service providers and emergency responders with training and consultancy services, empowering emergency service personnel.
Its track record and diverse specialties include pre-hospital care protocols, helicopter emergency medical service, international major incident management, and innovative medical training.
For his part, Steven Wines, President of Training and Consultancy at Prometheus Medical, said: “Our track record and diverse specialties position us as key contributors to this partnership.”
Steven Wines further said that the partnership paves the way for an integrated healthcare solutions provider encompassing pre-hospital services and specialized training and consultancy services.
“This is a pivotal moment for both organizations. We are poised to deliver exceptional and cutting-edge healthcare solutions that transcend boundaries and elevate standards across industries,” underscored Steven Wines.
Presently, RPM operates 500 clinics catering to the oil and gas and industrial sectors, which boasts a tier-one client roster comprising prominent names such as Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
RPM is a part of Response Plus Holding PJSC, the largest pre-hospital medical services provider in the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, listed on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange.
As part of the Prometheus acquisition, RPM will become a distributor for US-based Safeguard Medical’s innovative trauma care and simulation products in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and India.
This acquisition not only enhances the two collaborative partners’ commercial capabilities but also brings the most advanced range of trauma products to the GCC region and beyond.
On top of these benefits, the Prometheus acquisition presents an opportunity for RPM to extend its coverage to Global Oil majors and reputed Defense providers serviced by Prometheus.
The tier-one client roster includes Shell, Chevron, ACKER BP, DCAS, the United Kingdom’s Military and Royal Flight of Oman, and the UK Security, Defense, and National Health Service (NHS) emergency services.
Moreover, the landmark deal brings together two leading healthcare providers forming a credible global healthcare platform for energy and defense companies.
The acquisition of Prometheus also accelerates RPM’s market entry into the United Kingdom and Nordic countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland.
Additionally, the integration of the two companies will offer one-stop solutions for offering emergency consultancy and training services.
This integration will also improve access to remote health services tailored to the needs of Energy and Defense companies, VIPs medical coverage, and other health needs.
