With the acquisition of the Swedish Capio group, Ramsay Générale de Santé, already France’s leading private hospital operator, has become one of Europe’s leaders in comprehensive patient care. Today, the Group has taken on a new name to facilitate the integration of the Capio group and its transformation.
- Following the acquisition of the Swedish Capio group in late 2018, the board of directors of Ramsay Générale de Santé, which has become one of the European leaders in comprehensive patient care, has chosen the group’s new brand, “Ramsay Santé”.
- As of today, the group will officially communicate under this new brand in France, while the more than 130 clinics and hospitals of the group in France will incorporate it over three years, through an identity integration plan.
- In other countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany), the group will continue to operate under the Capio brand, while emphasising its affiliation with the group, with the tagline “Part of Ramsay Santé”.
The new “Ramsay Santé” brand is in keeping with the group’s consolidated strategy, which aims to make it the leader in integrated patient care (primary care centres, transport, hospitalisation, follow-up and rehabilitation care, mental health, home care, etc.).
Furthermore, the shorter name will make it easier for the general public and healthcare professionals to use.
The Ramsay Générale de Santé brand dates back to the 2014 purchase of Générale de Santé by the Australian hospital group Ramsay Health Care in partnership with Crédit Agricole Assurances.
After the acquisition of the Capio Group in 2018, Ramsay Santé has become the leading European provider of comprehensive healthcare services. The group now has 36,000 employees and works with nearly 8,600 private practitioners.
Present in 5 countries, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Italy, the group treats more than 7 million patients per year in its 350 establishments.
In hospitalization, Ramsay Santé offers almost all medical and surgical treatments in three business lines: Medicine-Surgery-Obstetrics (MCO), Follow-up and Rehabilitation Care (SSR) and Mental Health. Wherever it is present, the group participates in public health service missions and in the health network of the country, as in Sweden where the group has more than a hundred local health centres.
The quality and safety of care is the group's priority in all the countries where it operates. This is why the group is today one of the references in modern medicine, especially in ambulatory surgery and enhanced recovery after surgery (ARS).
The group also invests more than €200 million every year in its establishments, whether in new surgical and imaging technologies, or in the construction and modernisation of establishments. It also innovates at the service of patients with new digital tools and by developing its organisations to improve the efficiency of care.
