Initium (ee-knee-she-um) is Latin for origin or beginning. Initium was founded on the principle of returning to the origins of health with innovative solutions for patients, administrators, and providers. Health care is provided by strangers with specialized skills, which requires empathy and the highest ethical standards, particularly in the care of the most vulnerable.
Initium Health is a public benefit corporation (PBC) which has formally committed to a public benefit through the use of innovation to improve human health. A PBC is a relatively new corporate designation which allows benefit to be a charter purpose of an organization and differentiates it from a traditional for-profit organization.
