"Mr. Jonathan Quach, General Manager of Bupa Global Asia Pacific, said: "Bupa was named the best medical insurance company of the year for two consecutive years, and we are honored to be recognized as the leader in this field by "Bloomberg Businessweek". These awards highlight our power in claims management and high net worth insurance services. Since our cooperation with Alltrust Insurance in 2012, we have entered the Chinese market, where aim to provide high-end medical insurance services to customers in Mainland China and have a complete understanding of their unique medical insurance and healthcare service needs. For example, we cooperated with Alltrust Insurance and launched insurance projects without annual overall limits or lifetime limits, to make high net worth customers enjoy the most comprehensive insurance, the best medical facilities, and the freedom to choose the most suitable treatment method that is unique in the market."
As the leading healthcare provider in UK, Bupa has always placed customers at the core of their services, and devoted itself to providing customers with the best medical services at home and abroad. For this reason, Bupa expanded its business in the global healthcare field so that customers can visit Bupa Cormwell Hospital in the United Kingdom, and even the largest medical network in the United States. In order to promote the development of Chinese domestic medical services, Bupa opened its first integrated medical center in Guangzhou in 2017, which has not only made its own history in improving people's daily lives and developed the local medical system, but also highlighted Bupa's promise to the region.
"With a strong medical background and first-class service, Bupa Global can provide customers with the healthcare confidence and assurance they need, and support them every step of the way. We are very proud to be recognized by "Bloomberg Businessweek", which has given us the motivation to continue to invest in people and in services in the Asia Pacific region, especially in China, the fastest growing and most unique market with the most potential. Our goal is to become a customer favorite medical partner in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and the entire Asia Pacific region." Mr. Jonathan Quach added.
