Quirónsalud, Spain’s largest private hospital group and part of Fresenius Helios, has acquired CediMed, a leading medical diagnostics group in Colombia. CediMed operates seven centrally located centers in Medellin, a major city of 2.5 million people. The company offers a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and laboratory services. The total investment is about €40 million.
Following Quirónsalud's entry into Colombia in 2019, this is another step in strengthening the company’s presence in Latin America’s growing and consolidating healthcare services markets. Fresenius Helios expects the transaction to close in the next few months, pending antitrust clearance.
