In line with its strategy to provide the leading clinics to match insurance companies' needs and to on average grow 15% per year, GHP establishes a new urology clinic in Stockholm. The clinic will be located just by NKS in Stockholm with the ambition to be leading in all areas of urology, with a particular focus on robotic surgery. With this clinic, and the new clinic in Gothenburg, GHP will have great presence within urology in Sweden's three biggest regions.
In September 2022, GHP will open the new clinic in central and attractive facilities, just next to New Karolinska in Solna, which apart from being highly accessible also allows for collaborations with the university hospital. Out-patient visits and minor surgery will be conducted in Solna, while major surgery will be performed at Löwenströmska Hospital where GHP already has great experience of this type of care. Martin Bergman, an experienced urologist from St Göran’s Hospital, will be CEO of the clinic.
“GHP’s effort is to establish a complete network of healthcare providers for the Swedish insurance companies. This establishment is an important addition to our network, and completes our existing clinics in Lund and Stockholm, and our new clinic in Gothenburg. The key to success is combining the best specialists with GHP’s strong models for development and management.” says Terese Sandberg Head of Operational Intelligence and Communication at GHP.
Similar to GHP’s other establishments, this clinic will also start up with leading specialists in the field to ensure a high-quality clinic from the very start. Furthermore, the clinic will be equipped to provide the most modern established treatment methods in order to help its patients in the best possible way.
“By establishing clinics in specialties where we know demand is high and we together with leading specialists can ensure the right culture and focus from start, we create leading clinics and shareholder value. The clinics we have started ourselves have over time been more profitable than acquired clinics and required much lower investments. This means that we have a very attractive return on investment in our start-ups. Our most profitable clinics are all clinics we have started ourselves.” says Philip Delborn CFO at GHP.
The clinic is expected to have a limited negative impact on GHP’s financial result in 2022.
