Vivalto Sante goes international with expansion into Portugal and Switzerland

Vivalto Sante, the third largest for-profit hospital group in France, is joining the likes of Fresenius, Ramsay and Mediclinic as it becomes the latest member of the highly select club of multinational hospital groups. As well as having bought a chain of three clinics in Switzerland, it is buying Lusiadas Saude, the third largest hospital group in Portugal. CEO Daniel Caille tells HBI that the decision to go international has nothing to do with opportunities for consolidation within the French market drying up.

Going international is hard for hospital groups

Vivalto Sante has taken the brave step of going international. That is a bold decision for a hospital business based in a single European country. Very few have succeeded in doing this and those that have are top players buying top players. We think of Fresenius Helios buying Quiron in Spain, Ramsay buying Generale de Santé in France and then Capio in Sweden, and Mediclinic buying Hirslanden in Switzerland.
