Gourdomichalis Maritime SA partners with Navarino to rollout Vikand healthcare services

Apr 4, 2024 | Case Studies

Gourdomichalis Maritime SA operates a modern fleet of dry bulk carriers from its Athens Headquarters. The company is currently in the process of enhancing the welfare of its seafarers by offering them Vikand healthcare services from Navarino.

Vikand provides seafarers with direct access to medical advice and assistance through its unique application, ranging from real-time video calls with medical professionals, rapid diagnosis based on remote reading of vital peripherals, mental wellness programs and crises intervention.

By focusing on a holistic approach to crew welfare, it provides a total healthcare solution for physical and mental health, diagnoses, and mitigation of chronic, routine and emergency medical needs, strategies for overall health and wellness, and crisis communications as needed.

Vasilis Xerotagaros HSQE Manager for Gourdomichalis said ‘The welfare and wellbeing of our crews is taken extremely seriously in our company and we are pleased to be able to offer these enhanced healthcare services across our fleet. We hope this will help to provide our staff at sea with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that there is now an extra layer of care and protection for them in case they need it and we are very happy to be working with our long standing partner, Navarino, on delivering these services.’

Katerina Liaki, Navarino’s Vikand Account Manager added ‘I am delighted to be working with Vasilis and his team at Gourdomichalis on this rollout. We are very proud of our partnership with Vikand and the mental boost that their solutions can provide to seafarers, who are so often far from comprehensive medical services on the oceans. Vikand really helps make a difference and I look forward to supporting Gourdomichalis and the welfare of their crews.’
