Laila Al Jassmi joins Bourn Hall International board

DUBAI, July 31, 2017

TVM Capital Healthcare, a specialist private equity investor in the healthcare sector, has announced that Laila Al Jassmi, founder and CEO of Health Beyond Borders, will join the board of Bourn Hall International.

TVM Capital Healthcare co-developed the concept for Bourn Hall International with Bourn Hall Clinic, Cambridge, UK, responsible for the world’s first IVF baby.

The founders of the clinic pioneered the IVF technology and received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2010. Today, BHI operates two reference clinics in Dubai, UAE, and Gurgaon/Delhi, NCR, India.

Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai, received accreditation from Joint Commission International (JCI), the world's largest and most recognised healthcare accreditor. The centre remains the only standalone JCI-accredited fertility center in the Mena region, the statement said.

“Owing to her various strong leadership roles in driving the local healthcare sector, where she oversaw the implementation of the DHA Health strategy, led the process of the Dubai Health Reform in 2007 and managed the Dubai Medical Tourism initiative, to name a few, Laila will prove to be an excellent addition to BHI’s diverse board. Her experience will serve the Bourn Hall Fertility Centres greatly, on both an operational and strategic level”, said Hoda Abou-Jamra, interim CEO of BHI, founding partner of TVM Capital Healthcare and member of the Dubai Business Women’s Council and Founding Chair of the GCC Chapter of the 30% Club.

Al Jassmi was awarded the Feigenbaum Excellence Leadership Award for "Women's Leaders" in 2011, and was more recently recognised as one of the 50 “GCC Woman Leaders” by World CSR Day & World Sustainability for the year of 2016. She has also been acknowledged as one of the 50 Women in Health Care & Wellness by CSR for 2016-2017 in Mumbai and one of the World's Greatest Women Achievers for 2016-2017 by URS Asia One.

Abou-Jamra added: “TVM Capital Healthcare believes in gender parity leading to better business decisions.  As a company which has played a significant role in healthcare since 2012 in the region, we take pride in actively increasing the representation of women at board level in the company and at portfolio level as it simply makes good business sense.”   - TradeArabia News Service
