Scanmed will also look to boost commercial revenues in orthopedics, rehabilitation, ophthalmology, and urogynecology, and for opening new labs and surgery units.

Currently, the Polish healthcare network operates a couple of multi-specialist hospitals, 13 cardiac centers for providing diagnostics and cardiological treatment, and a range of clinics and medical centers across the country.

Scanmed also offers outpatient care services in major Polish cities such as Warsaw, Kraków, Wroclaw, Poznan, Gdansk and Pabianice.

Wojciech Łukawski – Partner at Abris Capital Partners said: “We look forward to working hand in hand with Scanmed’s experienced management team and first-class medical personnel – the key asset of the group – in establishing the company as an institution of choice for Polish patients.

“We are also privileged to partner with a company that has provided such vital support in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic in Poland, in cooperation with public healthcare institutions.”

The previous investments made by Abris Capital Partners in the healthcare sector include ITP, a Polish vendor of aesthetic medicine products, and Dentotal Protect – a distributor of dental consumables, instruments, and equipment in Romania.

The deal, which is subject to regulatory approvals, is likely to close in Q1 2021.
