The nationwide network Bocian Clinic, specialising in infertility diagnostics and treatment, acquired 100% shares in Lublin-based Ab ovo Infertility Treatment Centre. Translink partner in Poland, Holon acted as exclusive transaction advisor to the buying party. This is the third acquisition completed by Holon for Bocian Clinic in the last four years, following the acquisition of Invita Clinic in Poznan, Poland, and My Clinic Riga in Latvia.
Bocian Clinic is one of the largest Polish networks offering diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Its medical services are used by 30,000 patients each year. Currently Bocian group already includes seven centers located in large Polish cities: Białystok, Warsaw, Katowice, Poznań, Szczecin and Lublin, as well as a foreign facility in Latvia.
“We are systematically strengthening our position on the infertility treatment market in Poland. The Ab ovo clinic’s profile fits perfectly into our activity and in the area of offered methods of assisted reproduction using in vitro. We are glad that we have acquired a highly specialized entity with a competent team with many years of experience. We will strive for full integration of Ab ovo with our other facilities. Soon we will focus on the implementation of processes, systems and standards developed by us to improve the service and treatment of patients.” says Krzysztof Mrugacz, Financial and Operational Director of Bocian Clinic.
Ab ovo brings together specialists in the field of gynecology and obstetrics, endocrinology, anesthesiology, urology, and radiology. For over 15 years Ab ovo has specialised in the diagnosis and treatment of couples struggling with infertility. The facility has comfortable gynecological offices, a treatment room, as well as a modern embryological and diagnostic laboratory. Patients can undergo insemination procedures and procedures of in vitro fertilization. The center also offers services in the field of pregnancy and gynecology, ultrasound, and a number of laboratory tests, including semen tests, can be performed on site.
“It is estimated that up to 15-20% of couples of childbearing age struggle with infertility. This is a really large group of people who need professional treatment. We are trying to move closer to patients, including those living in the eastern regions of the country. Therefore, we see great potential in Lublin-based the Ab ovo facility, which we intend to develop in the near future. We will co-operate with the current team, but also employ additional medical staff. Soon, we are also planning to change the name, because the centre will operate under the name of Klinika Bocian Lublin.” adds Krzysztof Mrugacz, Financial and Operational Director of Bocian Clinic.
