Today Quinn Healthcare (www.quinnhealthcare.ie) has opened (sadly the website isn’t ;)), after purchasing the business from BUPA Ireland earlier this year. Seán Quinn (Chairman of the Quinn Group) has promised that he intends to bring a further 500 new jobs to Fermoy to bring up the employee numbers to 800. Quinn Healthcare has promised it’s 440,000 customers that there won’t be any increases in healthcare policies for the rest of 2007.
It will be indeed interesting to see how VHI and Quinn try and entice their competitor’s customers from each other. Once again there is a little bit of competition in the Irish Healthcare market, which is certainly welcomed. 😀
