Shalom Healthcare Solutions was founded by Dr.Mehari Winta when she realized the dire need for medical professionals, services, and medical equipment, as there is a lack thereof in the market. With this in mind, her primary mission was not just to be your average healthcare provider providing the usual medical services but to tap into the business side of medicine and to fill the need for the lack of medical equipment being supplied. That said, she took matters into her own hands to provide healthcare systems with the essential medical equipment and supplies they need to better serve patients by partnering with the world’s leading healthcare companies.
