HCA Healthcare UK has joined the Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (amii) as a corporate member, as the Association continues to grow its network of member organisations.
HCA is the largest private healthcare provider in the world and one of the leading providers in the UK. The organisation is also the largest provider of robotic surgery in the independent sector.
Founded in 1968 by cardiologist Dr Thomas Frist who believed in truly patient-centred care, HCA has built a world-class network of over 30 facilities in London and Manchester, with its latest venture opening in Birmingham in 2023.
HCA UK works with over 3,000 carefully selected consultants who are experts in their specialities and at the forefront of global clinical excellence.
Vice President of Corporate Sales Soraya Chamberlain is thrilled that HCA UK has taken up corporate membership of amii.
Soraya said: “We are excited to join amii as a corporate member. amii has a strong voice in our industry and we genuinely believe we have a valuable and influential role to play in supporting intermediaries, insurers and corporates.
“We are looking forward to supporting the association, bringing some value where we can and being part of the positive influence and leverage amii can bring to our market. There’s never been a better time to join the Association.”
amii has enjoyed a record-breaking expansion during 2022 and this year the Association’s growth is set to be equally as strong.
amii is the voice of intermediaries and insurer members, promoting and advising individuals and companies on health insurance, protection and well-being services. The Association now has in excess of 135 members after welcoming sixteen new intermediaries and four new corporates in 2022, amii’s highest-ever recruitment in a single year.
Executive Chairman David Middleton said: “We are thrilled that HCA Healthcare has joined the amii family. It is great to see an internationally recognised healthcare provider join and in doing so recognise that the breadth and depth of amii reaches far beyond health insurance.
“As we enter 2023 on the back of record-breaking membership recruitment and a rebrand in 2022, we are confident that our rapid expansion will continue and we look forward to working with new associate organisations.”
amii membership benefits include participation at national conferences, technical regulatory compliance support, parliamentary and regulatory lobbying, Preferential Professional Indemnity Insurance cover, online technical advice and professional support, an education events programme and opportunities to network with industry colleagues.
