International Hospitals Recruitment (IHR) is a Canadian organization established in 1994 primarily to provide medical staff and health care professionals from North America to Saudi Arabia. At the time we had one client that was operating three hospitals. We have enjoyed a growing demand from hospit als in the region that use our services, fueled by the hospital building boom the area is experiencing for private and public health facilities. Since then we have expanded and currently provide our services recruiting for over 20 facilities scattered around Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Qatar. To satisfy this demand we also established a network of associates around the world, and cooperate with associates in New Zealand and United Kingdom.
