Siemens Financial Services wins HealthInvestor Award

SFS is ‘Lessor of the Year’ for the third time running at the Health Investor Awards

The Healthcare Finance team is celebrating after returning from the Health Investor Awards with the coveted ‘Lessor of the Year’ title.

The Health Investor Awards are held annually to celebrate those who invest in, advise, lend to and operate in the health and social care markets. This year’s event was hosted by BBC veteran John Humphrys and attended by over 1,200 people.

Members of the team were at the ceremony held on Wednesday 15 June at Grosvenor House Hotel in London, to pick up the award for an unprecedented third consecutive year.

SFS’ innovative entry gave a variety of examples of leased healthcare technology in the form of a ‘patient journey’. It highlighted the different assets – including Siemens and non-Siemens equipment - that SFS can finance from the time a fictitious patient visited his GP to being treated in hospital. The entry also highlighted the importance and value of SFS’ ability to work closely with Siemens Healthineers in all areas.

Three in-depth case studies were then used as examples of how SFS creates tailored financing solutions. Additionally, they demonstrated the challenges that can occur when financing healthcare assets, and how these were overcome with the help of the team’s experience and dedication.

Information on the wide-ranging expertise of the team and SFS’ dedication to supporting the healthcare sector also impressed the judges.

Chris Wilkinson, Head of Sales - Public Sector/Healthcare said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised at the Health Investor Awards. It’s highly unusual to win an award as hotly contested as this one three years in a row, especially as we were up against a very strong shortlist. It’s a great reward for the whole team’s hard work over the past 12 months and we couldn’t be more pleased!”
