Operating room at a HELIOS clinic

Fresenius Helios is one of the largest and most medically-advanced operators of both in- and outpatient care in Europe, offering expertise in all areas of clinical care. 

Fresenius Helios owns and operates Helios hospitals in Germany and Quirónsalud hospitals in Spain and Latin America. Every year more than 24 million patients choose Helios for medical treatment, of whom 22.2 million are outpatients. Fresenius Helios is committed to the highest quality clinical and nursing care.



Based in Berlin, Helios owns and operates 87 clinics, including seven maximum care hospitals in Erfurt, Berlin-Buch, Duisburg, Wuppertal, Schwerin, Krefeld and Wiesbaden. Helios hospitals provide inpatient care to about 1.2 million patients annually.

As the only hospital group in Germany Helios operates its own hospitals ranging from basic care starting at 46 beds to maximum care with 1,500 beds. The acute care hospitals offer nearly the full spectrum of medical services at a high level of quality. Some Helios clinics are renowned beyond Germany’s borders for their outstanding medical achievements.

By combining senior citizens’ homes and acute medical care, Helios gives residents access to optimum, fast medical care. Helios has already implemented this intelligent and trend-setting concept of short distances for seniors at nine of its hospitals.

Helios strives to expand its integrated medical care offering. This is made possible through cooperations with non-hospital providers, especially local doctors’ practices, as well as our own medical care centers close to the hospitals. Our medical care centers are only established where they offer a useful complement to our hospitals and when high-quality outpatient care cannot be guaranteed over a long period through cooperations with local doctors’ practices. In medical care centers, patients are treated before or after an inpatient hospital stay. An important goal is to avoid unnecessary duplication in examinations, because high quality and competent medical care in conjunction with the rational use of resources best serves the well-being of patients.


Quirónsalud operates 58 hospitals, around 100 outpatient centers and some 300 Occupational Risk Centers. Active in every major metropolitan region of Spain, and now with eight hospitals in Latin America, Madrid-based Quirónsalud has more than 47,000 employees.
