article from 27.06.2019

At the beginning of 2019, Swiss Medical Network acquired an initial 40% stake in Rosenklinik SA through a capital increase and will acquire the entire share-capital by the end of 2022 at the latest. As part of this acquisition, Swiss Medical Network will secure and promote jobs and support the clinic's development in the coming years.

Rosenklinik was founded by Dr Marcel Jud and Dr Martin Pfister in 1995 and is located in the center of Rapperswil, in the canton of St. Gallen, easily accessible to patients living on both sides of Lake Zurich. The hospital is on the hospital list of the canton of St. Gallen with mandates for orthopaedics, surgery, urology and a partial mandate for neurosurgery. In 2017, Rosenklinik performed 1'132 surgical interventions and realised revenues of approximately CHF 10.3 million.

The operation of the hospital were integrated in Swiss Medical Network as of 1 February 2019. The continuation of the activities and its development will be in line with the strategic approach initiated by its founders. Synergies with the group's various establishments, especially Privatklinik Bethanien in Zurich and Privatklinik Lindberg in Winterthur, will directly benefit the patients and the physicians active in Rosenklinik and in other group entities.
