SOSi personnel working overseas will have access to advanced health care under a newly constructed partnership between George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates and SOS International LLC.
MFA’s global operations center offers 24/7 service to connect patients directly to physicians who provide care through telemedicine methods such as mobile device applications and video conferencing.
SOSi also recently announced it has hired Dr. James Phillips as chief medical officer. Phillips received his medicine degree from the University of Oklahoma and has taught at Harvard Medical School for four years. He received a Disaster Medicine and Emergency Management Fellowship from Harvard and has more than 12 years of experience in trauma and reconstructive surgery, emergency medicine and expeditionary medical services.
“Providing exceptional medical care in austere environments requires specialized training, nimble thinking, and the ability to improvise,” Phillips said. “GW-MFA has years of experience providing such care, and I am very proud to be a part of this growing business area within SOSi.”
SOSi has provided various mission support services to the United States government, its coalition partners and other defense and aerospace contractors since 2002. Company leaders plan to expand to offer support to oil, gas and mining clients.
“SOSi is accustomed to working in the world’s most challenging environments,” said President and CEO Julian Setian. “We are committed to ensuring that our clients, partners and employees receive the best possible care, no matter where they work.”
