Making a difference by accessing top healthcare

Joseph Janiczek understands the value of his Legatus Healthnetwork benefit. A member of the Legatus Board of Governors, chairman of Janiczek and Co., and a Healthnetwork GOLD supporter, Janiczek has called upon Healthnetwork on several occasions. Each time he was provided with expedient solutions.

“As soon as I got a taste for Healthnetwork, I was sold on the value of their services,” Janiczek says. “Healthnetwork Foundation has an impeccable reputation for excellence. Their ability to offer access to healthcare is a great service for Legatus members. In fact, I became a Healthnetwork GOLD supporter because they provided such great service to people who are very important to me.”

Janiczek’s first call to Healthnetwork was for his father, who required shoulder surgery. Once his father decided to proceed with surgery, he wanted it done quickly. After trying valiantly on his own to secure appointments with a specialist, Janiczek’s father grew frustrated with how long he would have to wait for an appointment.

“I called Healthnetwork on my father’s behalf and he was connected with an incredible expert near him very quickly,” Janiczek says. “Within a week of my call, the liaison at the hospital secured an appointment for him and he had his surgery a week later. He is very pleased with the expediency and grateful for the connection to such a talented physician.”

Janiczek then learned that his niece had an abnormal cyst in her hip area, again prompting him to call Healthnetwork. Her treating physician recommended a specialist, but getting an appointment with this specialist just to diagnose the medical condition was many days longer than the family wanted to wait.

“I thought to call Healthnetwork again,” he says. “With one call, my niece was able to see a leading pediatric specialist. He made time for her immediately and she had surgery the next day. My family felt like they were in great hands, and my niece received the best medical care.”

Like Janiczek, many of his colleagues are chief executive officers. After talking with a close friend about a medical crisis, Janiczek offered to ask Healthnetwork for help.

“As a board member of Legatus, I was aware of Healthnetwork’s unique services,” Janiczek remarks. “Healthnetwork has a reputation for offering bypass solutions to the medical bureaucracy we all face; their ability to streamline access when we need it means very much to all of us.”

Healthnetwork is your health advocate, poised to assist you and your loved ones to secure appointments with the best physicians at top hospitals across the country.
