Maritime medical operations provider Vikand Medical Solutions has signed a multi-year agreement with Swan Hellenic to manage medical operations onboard its fleet of expedition cruise ships. 

“Swan Hellenic is a pioneering heritage brand with a reputation for anticipating guests’ needs and exceeding their expectations,” said Andrea Zito, CEO of Swan Hellenic. “While invisible to our clients, having Vikand manage all the medical operations aboard our new five-star Polar Class 5 ice-class expedition vessels – SH Minerva and SH Vega – means we can be sure to provide medical protection and care of the highest standards in any eventuality.” 

Vikand will provide medical facility operations, outbreak prevention and mitigation, emergency support, formulary and biomedical equipment management, medical staffing, and ongoing consultation. 

“With new 2022 itineraries announced in July 2021, Vikand is working closely with Swan Hellenic to ensure a safe environment that completes the many measures it employs to create unforgettable guest experiences,” said Tom Brady, Vikand’s vice president of global partner relationships. “Vikand is excited to partner with Swan Hellenic, complementing the visible aspects of Swan Hellenic’s onboard and exotic destination experiences in a behind-the-scenes role with an all-encompassing focus on healthcare systems and the required human resources to provide impeccable care should the need arise.”
