Meras Arabia Medical Holding is a group of 13 medical centres across Riyadh offering cosmetic dermatology, dental care services and other general healthcare services.

Meras depends mostly on cash patients and saw its revenues up c18% Y-o-Y to SAR12.2 to SAR67mn in 2018, while earnings increased 22% to SAR14mn. (Company disclosure)
