Caelen King, Founder and CEO of Whatclinic.com
Global healthcare comparison website Whatclinic.com announced today it plans to double its sales and customer care teams thanks to the rapid expansion of its business across the world.
A first-of-its kind search engine company, Whatclinic.com empowers patients in their search for medical treatments and enables patients to compare and review over 120,000 private healthcare clinics across 135 countries worldwide.
The company plans to hire 26 new staff in Ireland over the next 12 months to keep up with the ever-increasing 1.5 million users who visit the website each month.
Commenting on the rapid growth of the company, Caelen said: “We want to change the world by increasing access to information to help drive down the cost of private healthcare and provide transparency around quality of treatment and cost. The consistent growth of visitor numbers to Whatclinic.com shows that there is a growing need for independent, trustworthy information around private healthcare.”
Whatclinic.com was founded by King who had personally experienced the lack of access to useful information on medical procedures. Since 2006, he and his team have grown the company which now employs 60 people in its Dublin HQ.
Since its launch, more than 60 million visitors have used Whatclinic.com’s technology to find, compare and book a variety of procedures across a wide range of elective, self-pay medical treatments.
