French healthcare firm acquires Florence Nightingale Hospitals

Groupe Sinoué has acquired Florence Nightingale Hospitals, the UK subsidiary of Sweden-based European healthcare provider Capio Groupe, for an undisclosed sum.

Florence Nightingale Hospitals operates the Capio Nightingale Hospital, an independent mental healthcare facility in Marylebone, London.

French mental healthcare specialist Groupe Sinoué said the London facility was an “attractive proposition” in a statement because it had achieved “over 20% sales growth in the past four years”.

Groupe Sinoué added that Florence Nightingales Hospitals, which is its first acquisition of a UK business, “will account for a quarter” of the organisation’s turnover.

The French firm has said it will continue to develop Capio Nightingale’s portfolio of treatment centres and programmes as well as its core services of general and adolescent psychiatry, eating disorders and addictions.

The hospital will rebrand over a six month period as Nightingale Hospital.

Dr Philippe Clery-Melin, founder and president of Groupe Sinoué, said: “This acquisition of Florence Nightingale Hospitals Ltd is a fantastic opportunity for Groupe Sinoué as our first venture into the UK. Capio Nightingale Hospital is renowned for its expertise in mental healthcare and with many leading consultants the hospital is an ideal complement to our existing clinics. It also represents a great opportunity for our consultants and professionals to cooperate with Nightingale’s expert team over new care programs and clinical innovation”.

Then a consultant psychiatrist, Clery-Melin founded Groupe Sinoué in 1989. The group has eight hospitals in France that deliver a wide range of psychiatric care services.
