Amil is the largest provider of managed health care in Brazil. Since its beginnings in 1972, with the acquisition of Casa de Saúde São José (a small maternity clinic in the city of Duque de Caxias), Amil has expanded both organically and through strategic acquisitions. The company provides medical plans for both individuals and businesses, and there are about 5 million Amil members. Amil’s network of providers includes more than 1,700 hospitals, 20,000 clinics and 6,500 laboratories. UnitedHealth Group, the giant American healthcare provider, bought Amil operations in October 2012.
