Alliance Medical acquired by Life Healthcare

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Alliance Medical is recognised as a valued partner for health systems across Europe, providing essential and affordable diagnostic imaging services along with the manufacture and distribution of radiopharmaceutical isotopes.  We have achieved this in partnership with patients, customers, staff and other stakeholders who have combined to build a highly successful, high quality clinical service.

We now enter a new chapter in our development and can confirm that Life Healthcare, an international healthcare provider, has today announced its acquisition of Alliance Medical.

Life Healthcare has been in business for 33 years and is a leading hospital provider with 63 hospitals and clinics, over 8,600 beds and treating circa 650,000 patients each year in South Africa.   They also have significant operations in India and Poland.  

Their vision is to be a market leading, internationally diversified healthcare provider focused on delivering sustainable, high quality and cost effective healthcare.  The entry into diagnostics is a natural evolution of this strategy.

The combination of Life Healthcare and Alliance Medical will create a truly international healthcare provider with a shared long term strategic vision.  This is a very exciting prospect.  Over time we believe the relationship with Life will open up opportunities for all stakeholders in our clinical services to build upon our shared expertise to the benefit of patients.

Life has confirmed their commitment to our Group and country management teams who will continue to work with all of our stakeholders to ensure we continue to provide a world class clinical service. In the meantime, it is very much business as usual.
