Fresenius Vamed will realize a 350-bed building at University Hospital St. Pölten, in Austria. Working with a partner company, Fresenius Vamed will be the general contractor on the €176 million project. The new building will have some 21,000 square meters (226,000 square feet) of floor space, housing a range of specialist wards. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2019.
Fresenius Helios is investing €14 million to modernize its hospital in Wipperfürth, North Rhine-Westphalia. Starting late this month, two wards will be completely renovated and expanded, with three delivery rooms to follow. To minimize disruptions to hospital operations, the individual renovations are being carried out in sequence. When completed in early 2019, they will provide more comfort for patients and reduce the distances that need to be walked inside the hospital.
Fitch Ratings has assigned Fresenius Finance Ireland’s €2,600 million notes issued to finance the acquisition of Quirónsalud an instrument rating of BBB-. It also affirmed Fresenius’ corporate credit rating at BBB-. The outlook is stable. The €2,600 million notes were drawn under the newly established Fresenius European Medium Term Note (EMTN) Program and issued by Fresenius Finance Ireland plc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA.
Fresenius Helios has opened the new building at its hospital in the western German city of Duisburg. The 22,000-square-meter (237,000-square-foot) structure will accommodate up to 350 inpatients. Construction took two years, with Fresenius Helios investing €50 million in the new building. The move from the existing facility into the new building will start later this month.
Quirónsalud, a unit of Fresenius Helios, is investing about €40 million to build a proton beam therapy center in Madrid. Scheduled for opening in 2019, it will be the first facility of this type for treating cancer patients in Spain. Currently, every patient who can benefit from proton beam therapy must seek treatment outside the country. In proton beam therapy, the use of a high-energy beam allows tumors to be irradiated with lower total doses of radiation and reduced exposure to surrounding tissue compared with conventional radiation therapy. Quirónsalud will also modernize and expand its radiotherapy clinics in Palmaplanas (Mallorca) and Seville.
Dilaudid (HYDROmorphone HCl injection) is now available in the company’s Simplist™ ready-to-administer prefilled syringe in the United States. This marks the third product launch for the Simplist™ line following ownership by Fresenius Kabi.
Fresenius successfully placed €1.0 billion of Schuldschein Loans. Given the substantial investor demand, the volume of the issuance was significantly upsized. The Schuldschein Loans were issued in tranches of five, seven and ten years with fixed and variable interest rates. The proceeds will be used general corporate purposes and the acquisition of Quirónsalud. Funding of the transaction will be on January 31, 2017. More than 230 investors participated. The placement was arranged by Bayerische Landesbank, Deutsche Bank AG, DZ BANK and NORD/LB Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale.

Fresenius Helios has laid the foundation stone for a new main building at HELIOS Hospital Dr. Horst Schmidt Kliniken in the German city of Wiesbaden, near Frankfurt. The seven-story structure, with 96,000 square meters (about 1 million square feet) of floor space, is being erected beside the existing clinic. It will have 22 operating rooms, more than 900 beds, and a design that significantly reduces distances and waiting times for patients.

Fresenius increased its 2013 Senior Credit Agreement by €1.2 billion incremental facilities as a further step to fund the acquisition of IDC Salud Holding S.L.U. (Quironsalud) by Fresenius Helios. A bridge facility of €3.75 billion was already signed in September 2016. The incremental facilities consist of an incremental term loan A of €900 million and an incremental revolving facility of €300 million. The transaction was well received by investors and substantially oversubscribed. More than 40 financial institutions participated.
A website published by Fresenius Kabi Germany on nutritional therapies for different types of patients has won the Health Media Award. The jury praised www.ernaehrungstherapie-hilft.de for its comprehensive information, a user-friendly presentation, and the site's attractive interactive elements. The German-language site targets not only patients and their family members, but also physicians, nutritionists and caregivers.
Two of Fresenius Vamed’s rehabilitation clinics in Austria have again been certified as “World Hospitals” by the Joint Commission International (JCI). The renewed certifications mean the Rehabilitation Clinic Montafon and the Neurological Therapy Center Gmundnerberg remain among the approximately 800 hospitals worldwide recognized by the JCI as top-tier facilities. A certification as a World Hospital is valid for three years. Quality standards are verified annually by the U.S.-based JCI, the world’s leading competence center for quality and patient safety in healthcare.

Fresenius Vamed has successfully completed another major project in Germany’s healthcare system, an emergency care center at the Charité university hospital in Berlin. The new center was built in partnership with the construction company Züblin for about €70 million. It will cover about 8,000 square meters (86,000 square feet) and host 15 operating rooms, a 71-bed intensive care ward and a central emergency department.
The price increase for hospital services in Germany has been set at 2.50% for 2017. This is in line with the level of past years.
Construction has begun at the HELIOS hospital in Hildesheim, a city in the German state of Lower Saxony, on a fourth hospital block. The nearly 6,000-square-meter (65,000 square feet), three-story building will house wards for ear, nose and throat medicine, oral-facial, and thoracic surgery. A pulmonary clinic acquired in 2014, currently situated in nearby Diekholzen, will be relocated to the new building including a sleep lab twice as large as the existing one. HELIOS is investing about €13 million in the new block of wards. Completion is expected in 2018.
Following Fresenius’ announcement to acquire the largest Spanish hospital operator Quirónsalud, the rating agencies Standard & Poor’s (BBB-, stable), Moody’s (Baa3, stable) and Fitch (BBB-, stable) are affirming the corporate credit ratings of Fresenius.
