Quirónsalud, Spain’s largest private hospital group and part of Fresenius Helios, has acquired Clínica Las Vegas and Clínica del Prado and further expanded its presence in the attractive private hospital market in Colombia. Clínica Las Vegas and Clínica del Prado are two centrally located hospitals in Medellín, a major city of 2.5 million people. The two facilities have a total of about 300 beds. The total investment for both hospitals is about €50 million.

Following Quirónsalud's entry into Peru in 2017 and the acquisition of Clínica Medellín this year, this is another step in strengthening the company’s presence in Latin America’s growing and consolidating hospital markets. Fresenius Helios expects both transactions to close in Q4 2019, pending anti-trust and regulatory clearance by the Colombian authorities.
