The Private Healthcare market in Romania

The market of the private medical services is one of the fastest developing sectors in Romania.According to market sources, the private healthcare market in Romania is currently estimated at approximately 600 million EUR, with the first ten players having a market share of some 40%. The number of private hospitals in Romania has increased by 20% in 2014. In Romania, there are over 280 privately owned clinics and policlinics and over 270 speciality medical centres. Apart from the major providers of private medical services in Romania, there are several smaller healthcare providers, thus leading to a rather fragmented market. The Romanian private medical services market has recorded a growing trend in the last years, supported by the increasing number of Romanians who choose private hospitals, clinics and laboratories instead of public facilities. The major providers of private medical services in Romania have made significant investments for their expansion in the past years. The private healthcare sector in Romania is mainly financed through fees for services. The specialised ambulatory healthcare is currently delivered through hospital outpatient departments, centres for diagnosis and treatment and medical specialised offices. A number of private medical services providers have developed their businesses by building networks of outpatient clinics. In the past 10 years, Romania has become an attractive destination for medical treatment in specialties like dentistry, plastic surgery, ophthalmology (iLASIK surgery), bariatric surgery, aesthetic dermatology, orthopedics, medical rehabilitation, medical imaging. The quality of medical services, medical professionalism and the latest facilities have opened new opportunities in terms of medical tourism. Moreover, Romania offers a price / quality ratio very good for health services compared with countries in Western European Union. Most medical services are reimbursed by health insurance providers in the EU in accordance with the Directive on cross-border healthcare EU/24/2011.

In terms of M&A activity in this sector, recent interesting Transactions can be observed. As an example, Mid Europe Partners, one of the leading private equity investors in Central Europe and Turkey, bought an 80% stake in a local large player, Regina Maria, from the American investment fund Advent International. According to market sources, the transaction is subject to anti-trust clearance and is expected to close in the last quarter of 2015.
