Mehiläinen keeps on growing in Estonia: two dental clinics acquired, the use of the Digital Clinic expands and new services are offered to Finnish companies
Press Release 1.11.2021
Mehiläinen’s strong growth and development continues in the Estonian market. KW and Al Mare are being acquired by Unimed, a dental service provider owned by Mehiläinen. Digital Clinic, launched in June for the customers of Qvalitas, a medical clinic and occupational health services provider, has proved to be a success, with approximately 100 new users registering to the service every day. In the future, health care services will also be offered to Finnish companies operating in Estonia.
- Our operations in the Estonian market started in spring 2021 with the acquisition of Unimed and Qvalitas. We immediately began development work together with the Estonian management and experts. It is great to be able to share our new milestones now, says Andreas Taalas, Country Manager for Mehiläinen's Estonian operations.
Unimed, a leading dental service provider owned by Mehiläinen, is strengthening its service network by acquiring two dental clinics, KW and Al Mare, which provide high-quality dental health services in the Tallinn area with 25 experts.
- We are very happy to have KW and Al Mare become part of Unimed. The current acquisitions support our goal of expanding our network of high-quality dental health services in Estonia, says Taalas.
Acquisitions are subject to the approval of the authorities.
100 new users per day for Digital Clinic
Qvalitas, a medical clinic and occupational healthcare service provider owned by Mehiläinen, made Digital Clinic, familiar from Finland, available to its customers in June. Its use is in rapid growth. Digital Clinic attracts new registrations at a rate of about 100 users per day.
- The COVID-19 pandemic continues to plague Estonia, and it is important to be able to provide our customers with safe and secure remote services. Through Digital Clinic, you can quickly contact the doctor. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased mental health and coping challenges in Estonia as well, and we have just opened a separate service line at Digital Clinic to support mental well-being, says Taalas.
The development of services will also create new opportunities for Finnish companies operating in Estonia.
- Through Qvalitas' comprehensive service network, we are able to offer health care services to Finnish companies as well, from statutory occupational health care service all the way up to comprehensive and digital solutions. It is easy and effective for our clients to be able to arrange the necessary health care services for their own staff both in Finland and Estonia with one partner, Taalas concludes.
