VIKAND, LLC has established a new ownership structure that will allow it to more quickly meet the demand for its high quality medical offerings to the cruise industry, according to a company release. 

MHG Services, Inc. relinquished its ownership position within VIKAND effective March 31st, 2015. 

Majority owners in VIKAND will be Peter Hult and Dr. Bill Heymann. 

VIKAND’s leadership team will include Peter Hult, President, and Dr. Bill Heymann, Medical Director of VIKAND and a world class management team.

“VIKAND is a rapidly growing medical management company and for it to continue to expand, we have mutually agreed to spin-off VIKAND from MHG’s insurance business. This will allow both organizations to focus on their core business," said Andrew Dudzinski, MHG’s Chairman and CEO.  “There is a growing need for VIKAND’s services in the maritime industry and we are proud to have played a key role in the development of VIKAND.”

“Our goal is to transform and deliver value to our customers by providing a seamless and integrated solution to maritime healthcare and medical operations," added Peter Hult.

“With our experienced medical team, the maritime industry will have access to medical expertise, better risk management and scalable solutions that offers significant cost savings while improving the service levels provided to their passengers and crew.  Our solution has already generated a 100% increase year-over-year in revenue and volume.  We want to structure ourselves to appropriately meet and fulfill this demand.”

“I know that the team at VIKAND will continue to develop new medical services and focus on “wowing” our customers, just as MHG has always committed to doing," said Peter Hult.  “I will miss the opportunity to work day-to-day with the wonderful people at MHG and want to thank and acknowledge them. We will continue to have a close relationship with MHG and will support each other’s operations, common clients and business partners.”
