The private healthcare company Mehiläinen has acquired the German hospital services company Dalberg Klinik, located near Frankfurt, which is the first step of the Finnish company into the German market.
Mehiläinen, one of Finland’s largest private healthcare providers, said on Monday that the acquisition will allow the company to provide public and private insurance-based healthcare services in Germany with a nationwide market value of more than EUR 400 billion.
The company added that the companies signed a share purchase agreement on November 11 and the deal took effect immediately.
The company said it plans to expand its operations "through new acquisitions and organic growth," adding that it was certifying its e-health platform BeeHealthy for the German market.
The company said its German country manager, Gerald Loos, was appointed to the post earlier this year.
Earlier this year, Mehiläinen said it was planning to buy two Estonian health care companies.
