The REGINA MARIA Healthcare Network supports Romanian start-ups by launching the first subscription healthcare package for entrepreneurs who start a business from scratch. It includes both the mandatory labour healthcare package and a prevention component that can be personalised depending on needs. Moreover, the REGINA MARIA Healthcare Network offers gratuity for basic healthcare services in the first year of contract, significant discounts the following year, and select top-ups.
The subscription healthcare package for start-ups includes the standard, mandatory labour healthcare package, health check-up on hiring, annual and bi-annual reports. Likewise, each employee can benefit from a general healthcare check-up and from access to the non-stop medical hotline, for medical advices in case of emergency. The package includes discounts for check-ups, tests, radiology, and sound imaging, and gives each patient access to their electronic health file. Moreover, patients benefit from national access in 45 own locations and over 200 partner clinics.
“The current generation of youngsters, results-oriented, is characterised by an effervescence that proves high thirst for entrepreneurship. This fact is supported by the high number of applicants that the Start-up Nation programme, which puts at their disposal non-reimbursable investment funds, registered at the end of last year. Health and prevention however often take the backseat on the start-ups’ list of priorities. That is why we have identified the natural need to reach out to them, offering entrepreneurs one thing less to worry about and an extra chance to prosper in business, thus contributing, in the long run, to the growth of healthy businesses,” said Andreea Minuta, Corporate Business Director, REGINA MARIA Healthcare Network.
According to a report published at the end of 2017 by Ernst&Young and Impact Hub, titled the Barometer of Start-ups, young Romanian entrepreneurs are facing numerous obstacles in the process of launching and developing their businesses – of the 357 local start-up founders included in the survey, 78 percent started their business with their own money. The challenges that young entrepreneurs face on the path to success are however much more numerous, varied, and, often starting from access to financing and fear of failure, go as far as the allocation of considerable resources for the promotion of products and services, the sales and distribution process. Now, when healthcare is not only usually left for last, but is sometimes actually sacrificed, the REGINA MARIA free subscription healthcare packages can support the energy that fresh managers and their teams need to implement their plans and attain their objectives.
