Our Model

Steward Health Care International is a global leader in integrated health care systems

and a preeminent accountable care organisation around the world. Our international experience and expertise in establishing, managing and maintaining quality patient-focused care is a driving force behind Steward Health Care International’s exceptional competency as a leader in the field.

Our Model

Steward Health Care International is able to use our network, resources and experiences as leverage throughout the world

often pursuing direct contracts with governments in Public Private Partnership models or using large scale growth opportunities to build systems that improve care quality and access for our patients.

Our Model

We have made significant, long-term investments in training centres, hospitals, clinics, emergency transport

and other specialised medical facilities to improve patient access to our services for the benefit of the people and the communities we serve. Our innovative model ensures the highest quality of care becomes reality whilst substantially reducing total medical expenses. We take responsibility for the full spectrum of our patients’ needs, and deliver services in a coordinated, integrated manner.
