About Us

Soter Healthcare is first and foremost a health and wellness company, and we are passionate about helping you live healthy.  We realize health is one of your most important assets, as it is for each of us. We count on our health to enjoy the lifestyle we choose.  Our families count on it, so we can provide income, relationship, support, and love.  Our co-workers count on our health, as well as theirs, to get work done, to succeed in business, to share the load needed to accomplish the things we desire.  Our communities count on our health as we volunteer at church, school, or in our neighborhood, participate in local activities, and share the enjoyment of community events.  When our health is impaired, we cannot offer the support, relationship, love, involvement, and more on which the people around us rely.  We also miss out on many of the aspects of life that make it purposeful and enjoyable for each of us.

We’ve designed innovative solutions that help people live healthy, active lives.  Our unique Destination Healthcare®, Destination Medical Care™, and Destination Dental Care™ approaches give people access to the best in medical technique, technology and science from around the world.  Advances in medicine are taking place all over the world, and we make it our business to follow those developments, so you can make full advantage of them.  It’s worth remembering that many of the medical procedures we appreciate today, including heart transplants, were pioneered far outside our home communities.

We offer alternative and complementary care to help you regain and maintain your healthy life.  Our approach is to utilize natural, effective ways to complement treatment from your physician.

At Soter Healthcare, we uniquely blend insurance tools previously used only by America’s largest companies with principles our leaders designed for insuring America’s Olympic athletes. Now, small and mid-sized businesses can use these innovative solutions, a package we call Soter Cares™ . With Soter Cares™, your business sees controlled costs, maintains robust benefits, and retains more of the money you worked hard to earn.

We believe in being servant leaders.  At Soter Healthcare, it isn’t about us.  Rather, our focus is on the people with whom we work and for whom we are privileged to care.  It’s easy for us to remember our focus; after all, it’s your health.

Soter Healthcare’s Name

Soter (pronounced soh-tare’) is a Greek word meaning “Deliverer” or “Savior”.  Our name reflects our commitment to serving people in our increasingly global community by creating access to medical care that saves and improves lives. Our name is also a link to our faith in a Living God, whose love for us creates the example by which we live and work.  It represents our focus on work as a mission, one that allows us to reach others with compassion, understanding and support. 

Our Founder

For more than 16 years, our founder, David Mair, worked with the US Olympic Committee where he designed the Elite Athlete Health Insurance Program and was charged with helping America’s elite athletes find medical care as they traveled around the world.  Later, he worked with an international medical assistance company where he discovered international medical centers of excellence delivering care that equaled or exceeded medical care in the US (along with some really, really awful hospitals too).  He took those experiences to a small medical tourism company and further refined the principles that became Destination Healthcare®.  In 2010, David launched Soter Healthcare and continues to focus on bringing you the best in health and wellness for your unique situation.

In addition to his work with the USOC, David served on the Executive Council of the Risk and Insurance Management Society for seven years and as its President in 2001-2002.  He was also President of the Nonprofit Risk Management Center.  He has spoken at conferences around the world and testified before the US Congress.

We’d say more, but as he always reminds us: “It isn’t about us. We’re here to serve others.”
