Our managing director, Alistair How, said: "To win this award for a third time in 11 years is outstanding. We now look after the health of more than 800,000 people in 190 countries – almost treble the number of customers we had in 2005.
“It’s a huge challenge to meet the healthcare needs of people all over the world and so it’s fantastic that our achievements have been recognised in this way. We are there for our customers and their families for everything from routine appointments with their local doctor, to heart bypass operations, right through to emergency evacuations from potentially life threatening and dangerous situations. For example, we recently helped a customer who was involved in a severe accident in the Bahamas, evacuating him by air ambulance to the nearest centre of medical excellence in Miami for emergency treatment."
“Whether you are a Chinese national living in the Czech Republic, or an Australian living in Alaska, we can meet your healthcare needs. We continue to look for new market opportunities - our successful launch in Russia last year is a good example of us bringing our healthcare expertise to expatriates in new territories.”
