Salud Junín, located in the industrial city of Córdoba, Argentina, is a medium-sized neighbourhood health clinic cooperative founded as a worker-recuperated enterprise by its nurses and maintenance staff in 2002. What distinguishes Salud Junín is that most of its members are female nurses. The clinic has developed a unique revenue generating stream: The cooperative works closely with around 60 doctors that practice for several hours a week out of the clinic for a fee paid to them mostly from the clinic’s own low-cost health insurance plan offered to the clinic’s patients. This unique worker coop-health insurance-doctor relationship mainly provides health services to cordobeses (Cordobans) without private health plans or social assistance.
