The Mine Health Corporation (“MHC”) is a provider of integrated healthcare services to mining and related industries.
The Company specialises in the mining industry, which has unique requirements. The Company is black-owned and managed.
The Company’s services cater to all levels of the healthcare value chain as it applies to the mining industry, and the offering centres around the need for occupational health services and medical emergency services in the industry and uses this base to drive primary healthcare, including the provision of HIV/AIDS treatment and wellness services to both the employees of mining companies, as well as their contractors.
In addition, the Company will provide healthcare insurance products, procurement of healthcare goods (medical consumables, pharmaceuticals and equipment), as well as occupational health consulting and training.
The Company operates a number of business models to suite clients’ unique circumstances including:
- owning and managing its own operations
- providing outsourced medical services from client premises
- network arrangements with other providers
The Company achieves measurable improved healthcare outcomes, while improving the cost-effectiveness of healthcare services.
The Mine Health Corporation has been established to take advantage of a number of key drivers affecting the mining industry in South Africa. These include:
- the increasing awareness of the health and safety of employees and their families
- the increasing trend of outsourcing non-core business in the mining industry
- the need to develop new black-owned and managed companies and support new black start-up companies
- the need among existing service providers to have value-adding black partners
- the increasing need to use information technology to improve the health of individuals and the need to integrate services to improve health outcomes, accountability and reduce risk
We believe that this model will introduce general efficiency and be cost-effective whilst also improving the health of individuals.
