Dr Saadia Virk Rizvi, CEO

Dr Saadia Virk started her medical career at Aga Khan University. She subsequently trained at St Mary's Hospital, London and at Basingstoke General Hospital, North Hampshire. She is certified by the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg and Les Hopitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg for her laparoscopic skills and has participated in workshops for her subspecialty in laparoscopic surgery in Atlanta and with the American Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Her specialized training has been in In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), oncology, high-risk obstetrics, urogynaecology and laparoscopic surgery.

In addition to her medical practice, Dr Saadia also serves as the CEO and chairperson of the board of directors of South City Hospital. She built a consortium of doctors to buy it from its previous owners in 2005 after the closure of Mideast Medical Centre.

Dr Saadia set up the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at OMI Hospital in 1996, then at Mideast Medical Centre in 1998, where she remained till 2005. She renovated the old South City Hospital building and added a second phase with new construction.

It was here that she set up the department of obstetrics and gynaecology and assisted with the creation of the critical care units, surgery, cardiology and orthopaedics departments. Her key non-clinical strength, therefore, is hospital building and set-up.
