GE Partners with Saudi Arabia's Princess Nourah University to Expand Simulation Training
From the Saudi Gazette:
Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University (PNU), the largest all-female university in the world, has signed two Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with GE with two overarching goals that will see GE moving its Saudi headquarters to the PNU Academic Complex in Riyadh, and the two entities undertaking joint work in Healthcare skills development and clinical simulations at King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz University Hospital (KAAUH).
The MoUs were signed at a ceremony at PNU by Dr Ahmed Mohammed Abuabah, CEO of KAAUH; Eng. Ahmed Nasser Albedaie, CEO PNU Endowment Company; and Hisham Al Bahkali, GE President & CEO, for Saudi Arabia & Bahrain. The ceremony took place in the presence of Dr. Hoda bint Mohamed Al-Ameel, Rector of PNU; Dr Saleh Abdullah Almezel, Vice Rector of PNU; and John Rice, GE Vice Chairman, along with other senior officials of PNU, KAAUH and GE.
As per the first MoU with PNU, GE will move all its operations in Riyadh to its new Saudi headquarters in PNU Academic Complex in 2018. A new state-of-the-art office will be designed to the highest standards of sustainability to accommodate all GE operations under one roof.
