Fortius Clinic was founded in 2009 by a group of clinicians that shared a vision to create a worldwide centre of excellence in MSK care. After 12 years of growth, it is said to be the largest single group of orthopaedic and MSK consultants in Europe with more than 90 specialists. It operates three out-patient and diagnostic clinics in central London, as well as the Fortius Surgical Centre and a specialist joint replacement centre in partnership with Bupa. Fortius was accredited as ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission in 2019 and is a recognised FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence.
Affidea Group ceo Giuseppe Recchi said: “This acquisition represents a significant step in our growth journey, as it adds one more geography to the existing 15 countries where we operate.
“Despite the current critical environment for the national healthcare systems across the world due to the pandemic, we will continue to offer outstanding patient care with positive medical outcomes.”
Fortius ceo Jim McAvoy added: “Today marks an exciting and pivotal stage in the further growth and development of Fortius. We are proud of our achievements in the orthopaedic and MSK market over the last 12 years and look forward to a new chapter for the company as part of a powerful European group.”
