Our history
Colsanitas is born in 1980 along with our health care facilities

We started in Colombia as an insurance company bringing innovative products for both private and public markets. Later in the 1990s, we developed a robust infrastructure of hospitals, medical centers, lab, dental and vision centers to improve access to care for our members. We have strived to provide outstanding and compassionate care and service, every step along the way. Beyond modern facilities, we believe in creating places that have life…that have a soul…and that are closer to our patients. Providing health care that’s personalized and not indifferent…health care that’s kind and treats patients with dignity, and health care with the highest quality standards.

Hispanic markets expansion starts in 1994

After successfully growing and perfecting our health care model in Colombia, we started an expansion plan that led us to begin operations in Venezuela, Peru, Brazil and Mexico. We proudly serve close to 3 million members and patients and have operations in more than 800 cities. We also believe in developing and nurturing the next generation of health care professionals, a reason why we founded our own university. Focused on the health and well being of our members and communities, we continue to elevate the state of healthcare in the countries where we have presence through technological, social and organizational innovation while generating employment, wealth and quality of life.

In 2014 we start our journey in the United States

Our bold expansion plan builds upon our substantial presence in South America to enter the United States market through a strategic alliance with GuideWell, a leading a health solutions organization focused on transforming healthcare. The organization includes Florida Blue (Florida’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan). In our first year, we opened three medical centers serving the Miami-Dade County under the Sanitas brand. These medical centers offer primary care, select specialty care, urgent care, laboratory, and diagnostic services. By 2017 we have grown to eleven locations, nine in Florida in partnership with GuideWell and two Locations in Connecticut in partnership with ConnectiCare and GuideWell
