ORPEA announced the acquisition of “Spitex Ville et Campagne”, the leading Swiss homecare provider, the Switzerland’s largest private network of care and homecare services for the elderly.
With a presence in 25 of the 26 Swiss cantons, “Spitex Ville et Campagne” has a unique nationwide footprint in a sector with substantial barriers to entry, requiring separate permits in each canton.
“Spitex Ville et Campagne” has built a very strong reputation among its customers and with the cantonal health authorities and insurers, which will give Senevita, ORPEA’s Swiss subsidiary, an invaluable network.
For Senevita, this acquisition represents a unique opportunity to:
– build a seamless homecare and facility-based offering that fits the needs of the elderly at every stage of their later life and for every degree of dependence
– hasten its development in nursing homes, especially in locations where ORPEA does not yet have a presence.
