Eduard Rudolf Pangkerego explained the importance of raising public awareness, especially stakeholders from our hotel chain regarding the dangers of COVID-19 and how to prevent it, made us look for health consultation partners who can be reached from every hotel without any distance and time constraints.

By providing this health service, continued Edo, we can provide a sense of security and comfort to our guests while staying at the hotels we manage.

The collaboration with the ARTOTEL Group is also in line with Halodoc’s mission to simplify access to health services for the public, especially ARTOTEL Group guests,” Dionisius Nathaniel concluded.
