Private companies have taken a deep breath and, after a brief hiatus, the market for acquisitions of companies operating in the private healthcare market is starting to get busy again. In May, the Ursus outpatient clinic was acquired by CMP and the NZOZ Intermed facilities changed ownership – in August they will start operating under Fresenius Neprophare. Everything indicates that other networks are also interested in acquisitions in this area. EMC Instytut Medyczny announced its plans last week.
Dialysis market leader invests in Intermed facilities
The NZOZ Intermed network of medical facilities will start operating under the Fresenius Nephrocare Polska brand from 2 August 2021. It is the first clinic network to strengthen the resources of the largest network of dialysis stations on the dialysis therapy market in Poland.
Fresenius Nephrocare operates a network of 72 dialysis stations in Poland, serving over 6,000 patients. All procedures conducted by the company are financed with public funds. NZOZ Intermed is a network of multi-specialist outpatient clinics in Zachodniopomorskie Voivodship operating in Gryfino, Insk, Lobez and Resko.
CMP strengthens its position in Warsaw
17 May 2021, Centrum Medyczne CMP has acquired 100% of shares in Lecznica Ursus Przychodnie Sp. z o.o., which has operated three clinics in Warsaw’s Ursus since 2002. The acquired clinics provide services under the National Health Fund (primary and specialist) as well as provide commercial services.
Centrum Medyczne CMP is among the largest companies in the private healthcare market in Poland. The company operates a network of 17 multi-specialist outpatient clinics located in Warsaw, Piaseczno, Lomianki and Jozefoslaw. CMP plans further investments in the development of its network of facilities.
EMC interested in acquiring a facility in Wroclaw
EMC Instytut Medyczny announced last week (31 May 2021) that it had begun preparations for the potential purchase of the NZOZ companies Practimed Medical Centre and Practimed Family Doctor Practice from Wroclaw. Negotiations on the matter are currently underway.
It is worth noting that the private healthcare market is set for a strong rebound in 2021. According to PMR’s latest forecasts, in the base case scenario, as a result of the base effect and the assumed improvement in the pandemic situation (particularly in the second half of the year and assuming the success of the vaccination programme), GDP will return to a positive growth path (3.8% y/y in 2021), which will be maintained throughout the forecast horizon. As a result, the private healthcare market in 2021 (excluding expenditure on drugs and non-drugs) will record growth of 17%.
