In this way SEKEM wants to contribute to a sustainable improvement of the desolate health care system and the high incidence of illness in Egypt."[4]

"Education and health awareness programs for patients are designed to meet the needs of the local community. People are told about sanitation and hygiene, provided with information on health, nutrition, disease prevention and environmental issues, and are encouraged to use the services of the Medical Center for preventive and curative treatments."[2] The Health on Wheels program aims to provide integral healthcare in Egypt to the surroundings of SEKEM.[5]

Since 2016 the medical center is climatized with the help of a solarthermic plant engineered as a research project by the Heliopolis University.[6]


The center was founded in 1995.[2] The german physician Hans Werner has supported the medical initiative over many years.[7]
