Vithas, through its Vithas Xanit Gibraltar clinic, has become the official healthcare service of the Lincoln Red Imps Football Club, one of the most important clubs from The Rock, as it is the record champion with the highest number of titles on the first division and in the Rock Cup in the local soccer competition.
The meeting for signing the agreement between Vithas and the Lincoln team was held this week and was attended by Mr Jose Antonio Rodenas, Managing Director of Vithas Xanit International Hospital, and Mr Dylan Viagas, President of the Lincoln Red Imps Football Club.
“This agreement, signed for two seasons, makes Vithas Xanit Gibraltar Clinic the nerve centre and powerhouse for providing global medical services to Lincoln Red Imps FC, while Vithas Xanit International Hospital will be the place to perform any surgeries that football players may need”, explained Jose Antonio Rodenas.
Furthermore, the Lincoln Red Imps FC President pointed out that "it is an honour for us that such an important and prestigious group as Vithas has set its sight on our football club".
Ms Mercedes Mengibar, Regional Managing Director of Andalusia in Vithas, highlighted Vithas’ strong commitment for promoting sports. "Through this kind of agreements, we emphasise the group's commitment to preventive medicine, promoting healthy lifestyles, an objective that is fulfilled through sports practice and its values.”
