Garanti Bank, one of the most dynamic banks on the local market, recently granted a RON 9.3 million investment loan and working capital facility to Anima, part of the Medlife Group, for the development of its network of clinics.
MedLife acquired the Anima clinics network in May last year. Anima Specialty Medical Services has six clinics and a laboratory, over 200 employees, medical specialists and support staff, being the first private medical network in Romania, with its own family medicine network.
Cagri Memisoglu, Deputy General Manager of Garanti Bank, said: “We believe in the development potential of the Romanian healthcare system and we strive to bring our contribution by financing viable projects in this sector. At Anima, part of Medlife Group, the public and private healthcare systems work together for the benefit of patients. Garanti Bank is keen to support such projects with high social impact, as part of our long-term commitment in Romania. The granted facility marks the onset of our collaboration, which we strongly believe will be successful in the long run.”
Anima is one of the largest private outpatient healthcare service providers which has agreements with the Bucharest Health Insurance House (CASMB), covering over 15 medical specialties, including family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, ENT, endocrinology, ophthalmology, dermatology and venerology, cardiology, psychiatry, rheumatology, gastroenterology, allergology and clinical immunology.
