14 February 2017, Manama, Bahrain – SAH Global conducted the MENA region’s first-ever Proton Therapy Patient Reunion in the Kingdom of Bahrain. SAH is the only company in the MENA region that is already treating patients from the area, while establishing a network of Proton Therapy centers globally, with the first center slated to be in the GCC.

The event was held under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Mohamed Bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, President of the Bahrain Supreme Council of Health. The reunion was a gathering for cancer patients from Bahrain that had traveled to the U.S. and were treated by the SAH team with proton therapy. The patients were greeted by members of SAH Global’s U.S. based executive and clinical treatment team.

H.E. Sheikh Mohamed Bin Abdullah Al Khalifah expressed his happiness with the celebration dedicated to patients that had been treated with Proton Therapy. H.E. Sheikh Mohamed stated “With the partnership between SAH Global and our Ministry of Health, we in Bahrain see the fruits of our collaboration through the excellence of care and treatment that SAH has provided to our patients. SAH has a unique medical team as they are one of the most experienced team of experts in the field of proton therapy. The team takes the extra steps in going above and beyond our collaboration and partnership agreement to provide deep care and affection towards each and every one of our patients. We at the Supreme Council of Health and the Ministry of Health have been pleased with the outcome that our patients have had and look forward to carrying on collaborating with SAH Global.”

We are here in Bahrain to see our patients in follow up. These are children who have come to us in the United States for treatment for their tumors and now we come here once a year to make sure they’re doing well after the treatment.

Today is also a big party and celebration to have all the patients coming together for the anniversary. It’s wonderful. Because when a child is being treated, the family goes through a lot. Having an event like this, all family members can support one another and share their experiences as well as tell future patients who are coming out what to expect.

This is an absolute joy. Some of these patients, especially children, I’ve treated over the last 5 years and I’m seeing them grow up before my very eyes. I’m seeing them here in Bahrain and it’s so exciting to visit them and their parents again. Such real joy Dr. Allan Thornton
