Fady Chreih, CEO of Regina Maria, said that through this acquisition, Ponderas will become the biggest hospital in the company’s network.

Ponderas has treated over 250,000 patients in its policlinic and hospital. It has carried out over 7,000 bariatric interventions.

Regina Maria was sold last year by investment fund Advent to private equity firm Mid Europa Partners, in one of the biggest deals in the local healthcare market.
