About us

ALMERÍA. WHERE OUR STORY BEGINS

Bienzobas WAS FOUNDED BY A GROUP OF DOCTORS IN ALMERIA OVER 20 YEARS AGO.
THE COMPANY WAS BORN TO PROVIDE A SERVICE THAT WAS NOT YET AVAILABLE, AND WHICH TODAY IS EXPANDING BOTH IN SPAIN AND INTERNATIONALLY.

Why is it that an idea conceived in a place like Almeria can reach out to the world?

This is the very story of Almeria. Almeria is synonymous with light.

For this reason, it should come as no surprise that the search for clarity and transparency in the management of oncology resources began here over 20 years ago: a balance in patient care between costs and efficiency, based on scientific evidence and in compliance with medical guidelines.

At Bienzobas, we are doctors who treat patients, and we bear the responsibility of managing cancer care in a sustainable way. To put this more simply: something that is beneficial for one patient will also bring benefits for all of us.

This is a simple idea that has been growing for the past 20 years, whilst at the same time there has been a growing sense that health systems must adapt to become more sustainable. This reality has been confirmed by health scholars across the globe. And they call it ‘Value Based Healthcare’.

“The symbol which represents Almeria is a human figure with outstretched arms which dates back to the Neolithic age. Extended arms represent an attitude of protection, embracing all and championing friendship”.

Dr. Eliseo Garcia, the founder of Bienzobas, was inspired by friendship above all else when naming the new company he had just founded: Bienzobas was the name of his best friend, and oncologist, who had recently passed away.

There is no doubt that, for us all, Bienzobas is the name that inspires us to remember what is really of value in our lives.
