About Mehiläinen

On a Lifelong Mission

The story of Mehiläinen is not about a company but rather about people and attitude.

When a group of doctors founded Mehiläinen in 1909, their goal was to create better health and wellbeing.

Along the way, we have treated soldiers, brought fathers inside the delivery room, exported digital healthcare services and experienced three pandemics.

Over the years we have been guided by one simple thing – life. Fragile, strong, erratic. Unfair and fortunate. Beginning or coming to an end.

Always valuable and unique.

Over the past one hundred years, the world has changed, but our attitude remains the same: the best care is still provided by people who are on a lifelong mission.

All our activities are guided by strong values and a customer-oriented corporate culture
