Spanish term or phrase:"obra social"
"la obra social de los empleados es considerada un beneficio extra que les permite acceder a un mejor servicio en el área de la salud"
Explanation: I don't know how to say "obra social" in English, but I'll try to explain what it is. The "obras sociales" are part of trade unions. Its support comes from monthly payments made by every employee belonging to the union. Generally, "obras sociales" have their own hospitals where memebers of the union are provided with health care services(they also have hotels to which memebers of the union can go to spend their holidays).
Hope it helps.
