Leading player in the Pays-de-la-Loire region, Groupe 3H operates 5 acute care clinics and rehab establishments, totaling close to 600 beds.
After nearly thirty years at the head of the Groupe, a history marked by the massive doctors association in 2011, the shareholders of 3H were advised by Clearwater International on the sale to regional holding SISIO, composed on an equal basis of Groupe Saint Gatien (Tours), Pôle Santé Léonard de Vinci (Tours) and Clinique Saint-Joseph (Angers).
This acquisition will allow the new ensemble to confirm its standing as independent leader of the acute care sector in France, with a total revenue of over €450 m, ensuring 3H shareholders a continuity in the specificities and family values of 3H.
With this 5th operation in the sector of private clinics in 2016, Clearwater International confirms its expertise in the French Healthcare sector.
The Clearwater team was led by Managing Partner Philippe Guézenec, supported by Associate Director Thomas Picquette and Analyst Bastien Lescalmel.
Alain Foltzer, Directeur Général, 3H said: “We have greatly appreciated Clearwater’s professionalism all throughout this process. Their strong dedication generated several interesting and pertinent offers for our Groupe, and also reassured the shareholders, composed of founding members and practitioners.”
Philippe Guézenec, Managing Partner, Clearwater International commented: “Within a sector experiencing a strong concentration and a decrease in tariffs, we were able to obtain a competitive and coherent industrial offer all while taking into account the specificities of Groupe 3H and the expectations of the Groupe’s management. This transactions allows for the birth of a new key player in the French private clinics sector, entering the acute care top 5 groups with leading establishments in their larger healthcare territories, all with the support of the family and medical shareholders.”
