Quirónsalud, the Spanish hospital group that is part of Fresenius Helios, has acquired Clínica Medellín and entered the attractive private hospital market in Colombia. Clínica Medellín operates two centrally located hospitals in Medellín, a major city of 2.5 million people. The two facilities have a total of about 185 beds. The total investment for Clínica Medellín is more than €50 million. Following Quirónsalud's entry into Peru last year, this is another step in strengthening the company’s presence in Latin America’s growing and consolidating hospital markets. Fresenius Helios expects the transaction to close in Q1 2019, pending anti-trust and regulatory clearance.
