Everything global begins locally. At the heart of an organization of any size are people, and it’s the effort of these individuals – many, many individuals, all working together toward something bigger than their isolated roles – that creates widespread impact.
We at Agile Global Health know this well. “Global” is in our name, and it’s an apt descriptor of our worldwide patient reach, care network, and logistical dexterity. But the building blocks of our international impact are the millions of daily person-to-person exchanges that constitute our team’s work. Just ask Linah.
Since 2000, Linah Anzazi of Mombasa, Kenya had experienced severe lower abdominal pains. Numerous test, surgeries, and therapies pursued with her local doctors over the 17 intervening years proved unsuccessful in resolving her ailments. Finally, in June, Linah met with Agile Global Health to seek another opinion.
Linah chose to put her trust in our Care Consultants in Mombasa. With sponsorship from Kenya’s National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF), Agile began managing her case, and arranged for her to travel to BLK Super Specialty Hospital in New Delhi, India.
After so many years of inconclusive tests and treatments, the swiftness of Linah’s healing in India was almost unbelievable. The day after she was received in New Delhi by Agile’s Operations Officers, she consulted both neurosurgeon Dr. Puneet Girdhar and gynecologist Dr. Poonam Khera, who together diagnosed her spinal stenosis and developed a treatment plan. Linah underwent two successful surgeries, was prescribed take-home medications, and advised to return for follow-up in six months.
Just three and a half weeks after her departure, she was home in Mombasa once again. And three weeks after her return, she was back in Agile Global Health’s office – this time, to celebrate.
“Our patient Linah visited our office to appreciate our wonderful service in person,” said Bernard Ademba, Mombasa Operations Officer. “She presented our team with a cake and a heartfelt thank-you card.”
“Everyone in our company is a critical team member in providing healthcare as fast as possible to our patients, maximally reducing suffering. It’s the individual who makes the difference in everything we do,” said Morgan Darwin, Agile’s CEO. “Linah’s gesture of gratitude points to how Agile’s untiring, personalized support to our clients enables someone like her to leave behind decades of pain and uncertainty and put faith in the ability of the Agile team members she met to help her find healing. We are all individuals supporting other individuals: it’s the sum of all our very localized efforts that collectively generate our global success.”
