More than just a pretty place
Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser his week helped open the Mangrove Eco-Park near Ras Tanura, the first facility in the Kingdom dedicated to the preservation of mangrove forests, which provide critical buffer zones between land and sea as well as breeding and nursery grounds for various marine life. Open to community residents, the park offers a great opportunity to see a wide variety of bird life and remarkable greenery.
Going 'Gold'Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) has been accredited as one of only four health-care organizations in the Kingdom with gold certification for its Person-Centered Care. The internal standard established by Planetree International measures quality in health care, where staff, patients, and families have their needs and desires heard and addressed.
"As of today, JHAH is officially the gold standard for person-centered care in Saudi Arabia," said Nabeel A. Al-Jama', Saudi Aramco's senior Vice President of Human Resources and Corporate Services. "You have built a JHAH culture that puts people and their needs at the front and center of everything we do."
