UK healthcare provider HCA Healthcare UK has officially joined the ranks of the Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (amii) as a corporate member and part of the association’s growth plan for its network of member organisations.

HCA is the largest private healthcare provider in the world, as well as one of the industry leaders in the UK. It’s also notable for being the largest provider of robotic surgery within the independent sector.

From its foundation in 1968 by cardiologist Dr Thomas Frist, HCA has built a network of over 30 facilities in London and Manchester. Birmingham is its latest centre, with the location opening this year. The healthcare provider works with over 3,000 consultants, all of whom are experts in their respective fields and at the forefront of global clinical excellence.

“A strong voice in our industry”

“We are excited to join amii as a corporate member,” HCA UK vice president of corporate sales Soraya Chamberlain (pictured) said. “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.”

Chamberlain said that the HCA UK will bring some value where it can and be part of the positive influence and leverage amii can bring to the market.

“There’s never been a better time to join the association,” she said.

The association saw a record-breaking expansion during 2022, with tracking for growth this year set to be equally strong. As the voice of intermediaries and insurance members, amii promotes and advises individuals and companies on health insurance, protection, and well-being services. Including HCA UK, amii now has over 135 members after welcoming 16 new intermediaries and four new corporates in 2022, the highest recruitment in a single year for the association.

“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,” amii executive chairman David Middleton said. “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.”
