Poland

Affidea entered the Polish healthcare market in 2000, in response to a change in the Polish healthcare system that introduced the possibility for Public Private Partnerships (PPP).

The National Health Fund (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia) is the institution responsible for financing healthcare services in Poland. The Fund finances healthcare services within the general health insurance system by concluding contracts with public as well as non-public healthcare providers. This is a perfect fit for Affidea with its proven model of a private healthcare provider fully integrated into a public healthcare system.

Conducting business in Poland was also a response to problems inherent in the Polish healthcare system. Lack of funds made investments in equipment and infrastructure impossible for many hospitals. The existing equipment aged with no prospect of replacement. At the same time, there was increasing demand for medical services.

In 2000, Affidea, then Euromedic, started its activity in Poland in two main medical fields: Diagnostics and Dialysis. Although in 2011 the company divested its dialysis business to Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co; cancer treatment as a new line of service was added to its activities.
