Newly-rebranded Laya Healthcare to create 100 jobs
The former Quinn Healthcare will create the positions over three years as part of a renewed investment.

HEALTH INSURANCE company Laya Healthcare, formerly Quinn Healthcare, has announced the creation of 100 new jobs over the next three years.

The jobs are being created as part of planned expansions by the insurer, which has today also launched a new cardiac screening initiative called HeartBeat.

The programme will allow all members over the age of 12 to avail of preventative cardiac screening, and is aimed specifically at combatting the incident of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, heart attacks and other cardiac conditions.

The announcements come as the company officially relaunches following its management-led takeover earlier in the year.

Company managing director Donal Clancy said the company would look to position itself as the “key consumer champion” in the health insurance market, and said it would do whatever it could to “ensure that our members have a strong voice from within the industry”.

The company has launched a ’3-2-1′ offer to new members for certain plans, where from May 21 they will be given up to three months’ cover free of charge if they switch provider.

The rebranding of Quinn Healthcare was announced last week, with the insurer abandoning the name of its bankrupt former owner Seán Quinn, whose Quinn Group bought the former Bupa Ireland in 2007.
