Rheinmetall Canada and Rheinmetall Project Solutions partner with Calian to develop and deliver a rapidly deployable expeditionary healthcare program

Rheinmetall Canada, Rheinmetall Project Solutions, and Calian Group Ltd. have joined forces to offer comprehensive healthcare solutions that have been designed to address the world’s most pressing humanitarian needs. The team’s Expeditionary Healthcare Program will have the capacity to rapidly provide the temporary infrastructure, advanced medical equipment, and healthcare professionals to provide “Role 1” medical services for temporary camps of up to 15 000 inhabitants. This initiative will provide the Canadian government, and other nations and international organizations, the ability to rapidly ameliorate the sufferings of vulnerable communities around the globe experiencing the challenges and trauma of natural disasters or manmade crises.

In teaming together, Rheinmetall Canada, Rheinmetall Project Solutions, and Calian will provide complementary skills and capabilities that will create real synergy within this extraordinary team. These include modern mobile and static medical clinics with all associated facilities, cutting-edge medical equipment and health information technologies, and a pool of healthcare professionals possessing exceptional qualifications and experience. In this field, Rheinmetall already strengthened its capabilities with acquisition of Zeppelin Mobile Systems (ZMS), who is the leading European provider of high-class medical solutions from turnkey military field hospitals to individual and unique custom-made medical care units. Rheinmetall will bring this experienced know-how into the teaming with Calian.

Pietro Mazzei, Vice-president of Rheinmetall Canada, commented: “We believe that this unique combination of modern temporary infrastructures, advanced medical technologies, and first-class healthcare professionals will provide governments with a real capability to achieve timely and positive improvement to the health of thousands of individuals facing desperate and dangerous challenges. We are proud to be building world-class Canadian partnerships to respond to this international need.”

Gordon McDonald, President, Health, Calian added: “We are delighted to partner with Rheinmetall, collaborating with a highly capable international team that is well-positioned to provide critical health services - where and when they are needed - around the globe.”
