Ramsay Générale de Santé has taken note of the press release issued today by Ramsay Health Care Limited, its Australian reference shareholder listed on the Sydney Stock Exchange, confirming following market rumours that it has received a non-binding and conditional indicative offer from a consortium of financial investors led by KKR to acquire 100% of the share capital of Ramsay Health Care Limited. This announcement can be viewed in full on the Ramsay Health Care Limited website (www.ramsayhealth.com).
Should this transaction be confirmed and have consequences for the shareholders of Ramsay Générale de Santé, of which Ramsay Health Care Limited indirectly holds 52.79% of the capital, the shareholders of Ramsay Générale de Santé will be informed in due course.
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 facilities.
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.
