Medicover, one of the top private healthcare operators in Romania, has finalized the acquisition of the ‘Doctor Luca’ clinic in Pitesti, a press release informs. The transaction is in addition to Medicover’s investments of approximately EUR 2 million already made in the first part of this year and follows the company’s strategy of constantly expanding and renewing its Romanian network.
The ‘Doctor Luca’ clinic was founded 17 years ago by Dr. Augustin Batis, a visionary entrepreneur, bringing together highly trained professionals and building a very successful local business: a multidisciplinary clinic with over 20 specialties, 40 doctors and over 500,000 patients.
The laboratory services offered within the center will continue to be available at local level and will be coordinated by Synevo Romania, one of the most important laboratory network in Romania, part of Medicover Group. As such, Synevo will expand the range of laboratory services available at Doctor Luca, in order to provide patients in the region with numerous internationally certified tests of the highest quality.
The company thus aims to integrate and further expand the services offered locally through the Medicover Hospital and its network of clinics, located now in nine cities in Romania.
In the first half of the year, Medicover inaugurated four clinics, in Ploiesti, Brasov, Galati and Cluj-Napoca. The acquisition of the ‘Doctor Luca clinic’ in Pitesti is part of the development strategy of the group, which implies high quality standards, and the expansion and renewal of its network in 2016, but also in the upcoming years.
