Creating an ecosystem of added-value services, Sohar International and the state-of-the-art Oman International Hospital in Muscat have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), to extend a range of exclusivities and discounts to the bank’s and hospital’s customers. Under the agreement, Sohar International credit cards holders will be offered a 20% discount on all out-patient consultations at Oman International Hospital and special rates in Health Packages.
Commenting on signing of the MoU, Mr. Khalil Salim Al Hedaifi, Chief Retail Banking Officer, Sohar International said, “We are indeed delighted to announce our partnership with a premium hospital that upholds similar values as ours. People are the most valuable asset of any nation and their physical, social, and mental well-being should be of utmost priority. By entering into strategic alliances like this, we reinstate the importance of putting health first so that our customers can avail high-quality health care if the need arises. We believe a healthy workforce is essential to a thriving national economy and Sohar International will take all initiatives to contribute in this direction while aligning itself to the broader goals of the country”.
For the OIH costumers, the bank has integrated its increasingly popular Easy Payment Plan (EPP) with the on-going offers. All Sohar International credit card holders are able to make payments in equal installments over a 3, 6 or 12 month period with a zero-interest rate for any transactions via Sohar International credit card starting from OMR 100 and above at Oman International Hospital.
Mr. Manuel Carvalho, Chief Operations Officer of Oman International Hospital stated, “We are very pleased to initiate this partnership once it will facilitate the access to quality healthcare to more and more people. High-standards of quality healthcare at Oman International Hospital are for All, and the materialization of this agreement is one more step towards this goal”.
Encouraging the practice of opting for regular health checkups, this partnership extends the benefits of a Sohar International credit card holder to the entire family. While Sohar International credit card holders get discounts on health check-ups, the card holder’s family members also become entitled to the same discount on health packages at Oman International Hospital.
By partnering with premium institutions to offer innovative products and services for the people, Sohar International Bank and Oman International Hospital have once again reinstated their customer/patient-centric philosophy and commitment to offer the best-in-class services. The collaborative approach to innovate and offer industry benchmarked products has today cemented the position of both institutions as world-leading Omani service companies helping patients, customers, communities and people to prosper and grow.
