Herman Smith Associates (HAS) was established as a hospital consulting firm in 1947. The Firm was based in Chicago, Illinois. In the middle East, its business is conducted under the name Herman Smith Associates International, S.A.R.L (HSAI). In 1988, Herman Smith Associates merged with Coopers and Lybrand, L.L.P. (C&L) and consolidated their offices with C&L. In 1996, C&L discontinued performing its healthcare consulting work under the HSA name. HSAI continues to maintain a relationship with C&L. In 1992, one of the Herman Smith Associates International partners formed PRISM Healthcare Consulting, in part, to maintain the rich consulting heritage of Herman Smith Associates. PRISM now provides consulting support to HSAI. Its founder was both a HAS and C&L partner and has been a HSAI partner since its formation.
Herman Smith Associates was one of the oldest and largest firms dedicated to providing management and consulting services exclusively to the healthcare field. In operation for nearly 50 years, the Firm served more than 1,000 hospitals, medical schools, and healthcare organizations. Many of these clients were served on several projects, in some cases over a period in excess of 20 years. In an effort to serve its increasing number of clients, the Firm opened additional offices on the United States West coast, and in the Middle East. The Firm expanded into the international market in 1972 by forming a Middle East company with its head offices in Amman, Jordan; offices in Beirut, Lebanon; and Athens, Greece. PRISM Healthcare Consulting is now the United States strategic partner to HSAI, providing strategic, operational, programmatic, technical, and facility development expertise for HSAI projects worldwide. Such assistance is based on the rich HAS and HSAI healthcare consulting heritage
In 1983, HSAI formed ServiceMaster Middle East (operating in Jordan as Consolidated Support Services CSS ) as a subsidiary, under license from the ServiceMaster Company, of Downers Grove, Illinois, U.S.A for providing support services to hospitals and other institutions. Those support services are in the areas of Hygienic Services, Laundry, Plant Operation and Maintenance, Food Service and Catering, and Medical Equipment (ME) Sales and Maintenance.
The Medical Equipment (ME) division was set up in 1995 to complement and complete the services of HSAI in the medical field. The ME division employed highly qualified engineers and technicians with experience in sales and in maintenance. The ME division targets both the governmental and the private sectors. This division has established a solid reputation for excellence in its sales activities, maintenance jobs, and cost-effectiveness. From its consulting background, HSAI’s ME division gave its customers problem-solving solutions efficiently. The ME division was supported in its marketing efforts by the full HSAI/CSS sales force and staff.
Elite Group For Medical Equipment and Investments was established in 1998 to continue the professional work of Consolidated Support Services’ (CSS’s) Medical Division. The establishment of the group took place to technically specialize in the medical equipment field. With Herman Smith Associates International (HSAI) and CSS financial strength and the specialization of Elite Group, the new company can enjoy the benefits of both an international, financially capable, and reputable corporation, and the specialization, commitment, and flexibility of a medium size company
