Affidea has acquired Hillsborough in Northern Ireland
Hillsborough Private Clinic is just outside of Belfast, performs approximately 4,000 same-day surgical procedures and caters to 11,000 outpatient visits per year. Among its offerings for outpatient surgery are cataract and eye surgery, endoscopic surgery including oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, cystoscopy and hysteroscopy, pediatric surgery and general surgical procedures. It also provides services in cardiology, dermatology, ENT, obstetrics and gynecology, nutrition, orthopaedics, pediatrics, rheumatology and urology. The acquisition is second for Affidea in Northern Ireland over the past seven months and the third it has made in the Northern Irish market. The company plans to invest in healthcare operations throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to improve and offer faster access to quality patient care.
"Adding a diverse, but thoughtfully selected range of specialist consultations, laboratory analysis and same-day surgical procedures is allowing us to participate across a wider portion of patient pathways and respond to patient needs to receive more integrated care at the right place with proper outpatient settings, resulting in best-in-class medical services for our patients, PHIs and corporate clients," said Recchi. "At the same time, such expansion is enabling building upon a large geographic footprint to compete for national leadership in the countries where we are present."
In addition to these acquisitions, Affidea also celebrated this month with Opus Land Development, the developer of the Cosmopolis residential complex in Romania, in the inauguration of the first medical clinic in the complex, operating under the Affidea brand. The collaboration is described as the first real estate and medical partnership in Romania, with more than 200,000 Euros invested in the building of the clinic, reported Romanian news outlet, Business Review
