Capio France takes next step in the Medipôle Lyon Villeurbanne project

Capio France has agreed to acquire the hospital Clinique du Grand Large in Lyon and at the same time to divest the rehabilitation activities in Capio Centre Bayard in Lyon.

Capio France has agreed to acquire the hospital Clinique du Grand Large in Lyon, France, with annual sales of MEUR 10 and 7,000 patients, from Mutualité Française, with effect from April 1, 2016. The hospital is specialized in surgical activities. Effective the same date, Capio France has agreed to divest the rehabilitation activities in the specialist clinic Capio Centre Bayard in Lyon, with annual sales of MEUR 7 and 2,100 patients, to Mutualité.

These transactions between Capio and Mutualité are another joint step in the Medipôle Lyon Villeurbanne project, which will become the largest private hospital in Lyon fully focused on Modern Medicine. It is expected to open at the end of 2018 when Capio has regrouped its surgical and interventional medicine activities from the hospitals Capio Clinique Tonkin and Clinique Grand Large, and Mutualité has regrouped its medicine, obstetrical, emergency and rehab activities into the new hospital, where each party will run its own activities.

The transactions are not expected to have any significant impact on the results or the financial position of Capio France in 2016.
