An innovative model
Centro Medico Santagostino is a comprehensive network of specialized clinics, the first in Italy to experiment a model of health care that combines high-quality and affordable prices.
Founded in 2009, the Centro Medico Santagostino was created to meet the growing and unmet need of a large part of the population: an affordable, high level specialist medicine, which also covers SSN (National Health Service) uncovered areas - such as dentistry, psychotherapy, speech therapy and others - where the offer is almost exclusively private and expensive.
An equally important goal is also to respond to the relational needs, facilitating the establishment of a good doctor-patient relationship based on listening and trust. That is why we assure adequate visit times to reach good diagnostics and the possibility to choose the specialist to maintain therapeutic continuity.
Our team of professionals, from doctors to receptionists, is dedicated to give the best care experience.
Centro Medico Santagostino was conceived and promoted by Oltre Venture, the first Italian venture capital association created by a group of private citizens, always attentive to popular initiatives. Because of its importance, the project has attracted a team of doctors, head physicians and professionals from different structures that put their experience at the service of citizens.
Centro Medico Santagostino majority investor is Oltre Venture. Oltre collects investments from individuals, foundations and corporations that choose to make their "calm and responsable capitals" available to a unique and innovative project. Recently new private shareholders joined to share the aims of the project.
The economic model
Centro Medico Santagostino provides a unique business model in Italy, that puts users needs before the financial return of investors, ensuring low prices in all specialties, without compromising the quality of service.
How do we keep prices down?
Distribution of profits it is not a Centro Medico Santagostino ownership's goal. This makes it possible to apply low rates. Furthermore the high volume of performance that we provide enable us to achieve economies of scale, and the effective and efficient organization of work helps us to keep costs down and to ensure the highest quality.
