Saudi German Hospitals Group is the largest private Healthcare provider in the MENA region (Middle East & North Africa). SGH is the operating name owned by MEAHCO, KSA. SGH Group started in 1988, where it was owned solely by the Batterjee family that had a unique spiritual vision that is derived from the Holy Quran “AND IF ANY ONE SAVED A LIFE, IT WOULD BE AS IF HE SAVED ALL OF MANKIND” (Al Maedaa).
That drive has moved SGH into a new era of Healthcare Industry development, where the scope and goals got elevated from a local ambition to regional ambition. The MEACHO vision is “To be the REGIONAL HEALTHCARE LEADER through the largest network of hospitals , delivering excellence in quality of care to patients and creating value for all stakeholders.
The first hospital established by SGH group started its operations in 1988 in Jeddah, KSA thus bringing contemporary German healthcare standards to the door step of the local community. After establishing a strong reputation for its quality of care and scientific management SGH expanded to other areas of Saudi Arabia. There were large numbers of patients from Saudi Arabia going to Germany for quality medical treatment. These patients and their families found difficulties to identify right centers for their condition and also huge cultural and logistic difficulties. The Batterjee family therefore decided to establish their first hospital in Jeddah through its strategic relationship with well-known German universities.
