Medicover has completed the acquisition process of the Phoenix Medical Center, a network of eight private medical units offering services in the Oltenia area.
As a result of this transaction Medicover expands its presence in a region with a high potential for growth. This is the third largest transaction of the Swedish group in Romania this year after the Pelican Hospital in Oradea and the Academic Medical Center in Bucharest.
Phoenix Medical Center is a private medical provider in Oltenia, which has a network of eight medical centers in Craiova, Targu Jiu, Slatina, Calafat and Dragasani.

We managed to enter a strong presence in two key regions in Romania, namely the Northwest by purchasing the Pelican Hospital and the Southwest by purchasing the Phoenix Medical Center. Moreover, we have found here ideal partners who have set a solid foundation on which we can grow together in the near future. In both cases, the doctors who founded these medical networks want to remain part of the Medicover team, to develop these networks and to provide medical services at the highest level, ”says Adrian Peake, general manager of Medicover Romania.
