The Story of Hospitainer


The origin of Hospitainer traces back to the experiences of Rolof Mulder, the founder, during the implementation of a medical ICT solution at a remote hospital in western Africa. This facility, requiring a substantial investment in high-tech medical infrastructure, faced critical challenges within three months of installation. It was plagued by functionality issues, severe understaffing, and teetered on the edge of closure. This pivotal moment sparked the genesis of an alternative vision for conventional healthcare systems: “For the price of a standard hospital, we could establish 50 to 100 Hospitainer hospitals or clinics.” These envisioned medical units were conceptualized to be resilient, mobile, cost-efficient, and easily maintainable.

Since the debut of the initial prototype, Hospitainer has extended its reach across four continents, delivering medical solutions that have enabled thousands of treatments and surgeries in areas affected by post-disaster scenarios, conflict zones, and rural regions.

Expanding its product portfolio over the years, Hospitainer has developed an array of medical solutions, all aligning with its core principles: robust, cost-effective, and mobile medical facilities housed within standard shipping containers. The primary objective of Hospitainer is to cultivate enduring and collaborative relationships with partners, ensuring the continual refinement and advancement of these solutions. Through strategic alliances with a select group of suppliers, Hospitainer has transformed into an innovative full-service provider, aspiring to be the go-to source for comprehensive, turnkey medical products.
