Learn how we have helped our clients by providing an array of assistance, medical and security solutions at home and abroad.
Language Barriers and Fears
A 56 year old British gentleman was on a Mediterranean holiday cruise with his wife when he started feeling unwell. Because the ship’s doctor became concerned that the patient’s symptoms were related to a cardiac problem, the patient and his wife were disembarked at the next port, a Corsican town called Ajaccio. He was admitted to the local public hospital and then moved by air ambulance to a private specialist unit in Marseilles on the mainland.
Evacuation of doctors exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone
International SOS supports organisations working in Ebola-affected countries. After two doctors were exposed to the virus while working for an NGO, we evacuated them to the Netherlands where they could access potentially life-saving medical support.
Assistance With a Lost Passport and Missing Wallet
If you are unlucky enough to lose your passport while you are abroad, it can be time-consuming and stressful to get a replacement. We can often make things easier—by scheduling appointments with embassies, arranging translation, wiring emergency funds, and rebooking flights home.
Emotional support for an international assignee
A Swiss employee on assignment contacted one of our Assistance Centres as she was having difficulty coping with her new post in the Czech Republic.
Improving a Healthcare Administration Programme
When your company does not have an adequate medical programme in place, costs can escalate along with increased employee sick time and lowered productivity.
