Organization Sanitas International to enter U.S. health care market
The centers are expected to open in October and will be open seven days a week. CliniSanitas will offer primary care, specialty care, urgent care or walk-ins, laboratory, diagnostic imaging and medications. It will also host free community health events featuring its team of doctors and nurses.
"This strategic alliance allows us to partner with a well-regarded organization like Sanitas to provide culturally relevant, high quality, convenient and cost-effective health care to the growing Hispanic community," Pat Geraghty, chairman and CEO of GuideWell and its subsidiary Florida Blue, said. "This effort enhances our ability to offer affordable and accessible options to our communities in a unique and impactful way."
The announcement coincides with Hispanic Heritage month, which has been celebrated by CliniSanitas with the launching of the campaign Me Inspiras (You Inspire Me, in Spanish), that honors Hispanics who have moved to the United States.
