What we believe
• Technology can enable innovation that leads to improved response times, diagnostics, access to patient information, resource management and patient outcomes.
• Partnering with doctors, medical schemes and developers will lead to the creation of fit-for-purpose medical facilities in undeserved areas.
• Enabling doctors to work together in teams (team based medicine, faculty medicine) with real time access to patient and diagnostic information at the point of care leads to better patient outcomes
• Samaritan has connected with developers to secure a pipeline of acute, day clinic, stepdown and assisted living facilities (1800 beds) for roll out over the next 5 to 10 years.
• The map shows where the facilities are (or will be) located.
• The 7 facilities (249 beds) shown on the map in orange will be commissioned in the next 24 months. 4 of these facilities are already built.
The Samaritan executive team and its network of experts and partners has a wide range and depth of healthcare delivery and property development experience, with a specific track record in the following key areas:
• Medical facility design, commissioning, management and optimisation;
• Information systems and informatics;
• Medical scheme reimbursement arrangements and administration requirements;

• Niche property development – with extensive experience in transitional zone
development, precinct rejuvenation, retirement estate development (including frail care and assisted living solutions).
Samaritan intends to attract leading medical, dental, nursing and allied professional practitioners to serve patients at its facilities. This is because Samaritan offers its medical team the following:
1. An opportunity to invest in a medical facility
There is an attractive investment opportunity for medical doctors, dentists and other professional practitioners working at Samaritan facilities. The investment offers a significant upfront tax concession, and on-going benefits of ownership.
2. Support services
Samaritan consults with medical practitioners, medical schemes and suppliers of information technology and medical equipment, to provide “fit-for-purpose” facilities that support clinical teams innovatively with:
Resourced nursing and administrative staff;
Efficient patient scheduling, admission, inpatient and discharge management;
Facilities equipped with telemedicine, video conferencing and access to electronic patient information to improve collaborative diagnostics and decision making;
The required medicines and consumables;
Effective engagement of medical schemes to minimize patient inconvenience and risk of uncovered (uninsured) services;
Emergency and casualty support services, appropriate for the type of medical or assisted care facility;
A medical information platform, to consolidate patient information and make it available at the point of service, to facilitate multi-disciplinary clinical teams with diagnostics and decision making.
