The CREDITAS investment group sells its network of Alzheimercenters

December 13, 2021

The CREDITAS investment group wants to focus on its core business and is therefore leaving the healthcare sector. It sells a total of twelve facilities to Penta Hospitals CZ, which is part of the Penta investment group. The transaction has yet to be approved by the Office for the Protection of Competition.

"We have owned the Alzheimercentrum since 2017 and during that time we have managed to expand it significantly. We have increased the number of centres that care for people with Alzheimer's disease and improved the services and care provided. But now we want to focus primarily on the key sectors of our portfolio, which are financial services, energy and real estate," says Jiří Hrouda, a member of the Board of Directors and CEO of the CREDITAS Group.

Alzheimercentrum has been providing social services and comprehensive health and nursing care to clients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other dementias for more than 25 years. It is the largest private provider of these services in the Czech Republic. The emphasis is primarily on individual care and a family atmosphere.

All Alzheimercentrum facilities should be integrated into the registered ALZHEIMER HOME institute from the Penta Hospitals CZ group in several stages over the next year, with all obligations to clients and employees. Their long-time experience and stable background of a strong company guarantee the further development of Alzheimercenters.

"The acquisition of Alzheimercentrum is part of our long-term strategy, i.e. to strengthen the position of the Penta Hospitals CZ group as a major provider of health and social services in the Czech Republic. At present, our group operates a network of its own specialized care centres for patients with Alzheimer's disease, and our goal is to further develop these centres both in terms of scope and the high standard and range of services offered. The entry into Alzheimercentrum thus fully fits into this concept," says Barbora Vaculíková, CEO of Penta Hospitals CZ.
