“Back in 2012, we established CMRC with the hope of developing it into another one of the pioneers of long-term, post-acute and rehabilitative care in the region, as we did in 2010 when we formed Provita International Medical Center, the first of its kind in the Middle East. We are extremely proud of the value we created with CMRC for patients, their families, the local healthcare system and our investors – by building a first-class management team and focusing on sustainable growth while providing excellent, patient-centric healthcare services.

CMRC successfully steered through the global pandemic throughout 2020, showing tremendous resilience in times of extreme adversity. This is testament to the true partnership between the company, its clinical partners and our commitment as a highly active growth capital investor. Our early focus on installing a rigorous ESG framework has enabled us to build a sustainable and successful healthcare company that has created more than 500 jobs to date and has significantly supported its community. We wish the company and its team continued success as they enter the next phase of their growth journey with the support of their new shareholders.”
