Value Partnerships - Stroke International Services (SIS), Vietnam

Advancing stroke treatment in Southeast Asia

Stroke International Services, Vietnam

In 2021 Stroke International Services (SIS) and Siemens Healthineers entered an 8-year Value Partnership to further expand the SIS stroke management network within Vietnam with two additional sites. We will jointly establish the one-stop center for stroke solutions in the country, integrated digitally enabled services, customized training programs in stroke management, and research collaboration.
With the support of Siemens Healthineers, the team also established the Stroke International Services (SIS) General Hospital in Can Tho City, dedicated to providing stroke patients with state-of-the-art stroke treatment.

After a stroke, every second counts. Each minute the brain is deprived of blood, two million cells die. The 20 million habitants of Vietnam’s Mekong Delta cannot always access care. We teamed up with Stroke International Services to create a dedicated stroke hospital in Can Tho City, providing vital stroke service to remote patients.

Because every second counts, we create new possibilities in a world of limited resources.

As part of this long-term partnership, Siemens Healthineers will install innovative medical technology and robotic solutions, anchoring on various digitalization platforms, and will further develop its training centers to organize customized education programs in the field of neuro-endovascular intervention and stroke treatment for Vietnam and Southeast Asia. This investment by SIS will focus on building a full stroke management network, with an extension to Ho Chi Minh city and Quang Nam province. 
For Siemens Healthineers, this is the first Value Partnership focusing on stroke in Southeast Asia.
