Singapore meeting

Dear WAEH-member,

This newsletter is to update you about the WAEH meeting in Singapore.

The teams from our member-eye hospitals have provided high quality inputs to the programme and all of us have truly enjoyed the friendship and bonding that were further cemented during this meeting.

Building upon the success of the first eight editions, the WAEH 2015 has given our members access to innovative services and practices which leading eyehospitals from all over the world are developing to the benefit of their patients, employees and communities.

The meeting has been attended by > 100 guests from 23 eye hospitals from all over the world.
If you were not able to come over this year, we hope to see you next time in Rotterdam! In the upcoming months we will keep you updated about our 10th jubilee year!

Best regards,

Charity Wai
Chair, board of the WAEH

SOL Innovation Award

During the 9th meeting the former chairman of the WAEH, Mr. Kees Sol, CFO of the Rotterdam Eye Hospital, has received the inaugural SOL Innovation Award for his contributions to the WAEH since it's establishment. Mr. Sol has always had an eye on innovation. The focus of the Rotterdam Eye Hospital and especially from Mr. Sol is not just to learn from peers like general hospitals or eye hospitals, but also from other industries, like the traveling industry or the offshore industry.
Each year the award will be given to one or more WAEH-members to support projects of cooperation between WAEH members focusing on improving developing new products and services that improve patient outcomes.
