Medicover, one of the leading providers of private medical and diagnostic services in Romania, has completed the acquisition of the Academica Medical Center. The transaction strengthens the presence of Medicover in Bucharest, where the company already owns a hospital, a maternity hospital and ten clinics.
The transaction provides for the takeover of the whole package of shares of the two Academica Medical Centers in Bucharest, both located in premium residential areas such as Aviatorilor or Pitar Mos.
