Named for the Swedish expression “vi kan” or “we can,” VIKAND was founded to address a growing need for a comprehensive outsourced maritime medical service provider, and quickly expanded to a greater question: How can we make lives simpler for those working at sea and in remote industries such as island resorts?
Due to the isolated nature of such industries, logistical and environmental factors can present complications when it comes to managing medical services, public health and pathogen control compared with similar land based trades. With so many challenges our desire was to see problems as opportunities and to create solutions that not only increase the health and wellbeing of staff, crew and guests, but also the health of your bottom line.
Currently, VIKAND provides medical service solutions to 170+ cruise vessels, impacting 14,000,000 guests and 120,000 crew globally annually as well as numerous other maritime and remote industry clients worldwide, and we have seen that commitment brought to life using the latest technology, advanced environmental solutions and crew wellness initiatives.
With the help of new scientific and medical innovations, and a focus on the sustainable and environmentally friendly, we at VIKAND continue to ask ourselves every day how we can better service not only the maritime industry, but have expanded our mission to benefit all remote industries worldwide.
