MEDIAN is the largest and leading operator of private rehabilitation clinics in Germany. The MEDIAN Group was formed when RHM Kliniken, acquired by Waterland in 2011, was merged with Median Kliniken in 2015. With inorganic growth in beds from 1,800 to 18,000 over a nine-year period the Group has evolved into a leading operator in Europe which has expanded to more than 120 facilities and generates annual revenue of approximately EUR 1 billion. Today MEDIAN is one of the biggest five private clinic groups in Germany with some 15,500 employees providing services to more than 225,000 patients in 14 federal states every year.

Over the past five years MEDIAN has focused on three key strategies. The first is the centralisation and standardisation of administrative processes to reduce costs and relieve the medical staff of additional administrative burdens. Secondly, MEDIAN has institutionalised experience sharing between its clinics by establishing a Medical Board. Today the board defines therapy guidelines for specific medical indications for the entire group, making an important contribution to improving the quality of medical services. Quality measurement is the third focus area. It includes the objective and increasingly digital measurement of treatment outcomes as a means of evaluating and improving the performance of therapies and also to ensure transparency for the payers and patients.

Waterland continues to support MEDIAN by making substantial investments in clinic buildings, technical equipment and new resources that facilitate the improvements in therapy results. Thanks to Waterland’s transaction expertise the group remains on course for growth in a fragmented market while providing a unique profile with high quality standards to patients and payers.
