25 March 2016

RTPR Allen & Overy has advised Centrul Medical Unirea (the healthcare services provider “Regina Maria”) on the acquisition of Ponderas Hospital. The transaction is subject to approval by the competition authority. The purchase price has not been disclosed.

Headquartered in Bucharest, Romania, Regina Maria offers a full range of integrated healthcare services, with a strong focus on hospital and ambulatory care, laboratory, imaging diagnostics and corporate subscriptions. In August 2015 Regina Maria was acquired by the private equity fund Mid Europa Partners from Advent International Corporation in a transaction considered to be the largest in the healthcare sector in Romania in 2015. RTPR Allen & Overy acted for Advent back in 2010 when it acquired Centrul Medical Unirea and also on the exit from the company.

Ponderas is the only Center of Excellence in Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery with a double accreditation from Eastern Europe – European and American. Ponderas was founded in 2011 by a group of doctors and offers a full range of healthcare services, with a focus on laparoscopic surgery.

The RTPR Allen & Overy team included Costin Tărăcilă (Managing Partner), Roxana Ionescu (Senior Associate), Andrei Mihul (Associate) and Monica Marian (Junior Associate).
