Fortius Clinic enters agreement to acquire Schoen Clinic London


Deal between two major HSMA healthcare providers will create a London centre of excellence in orthopaedics and sports medicine

Fortius Clinic, the UK’s largest orthopaedics and sports medicine group, has entered into an agreement to acquire Schoen Clinic London, a dedicated orthopaedic hospital on Wigmore Street (pictured above) which was opened in 2018 by the German Schoen Clinic Group.

Fortius Clinic’s five current facilities include two within the Harley Street Medical Area: an outpatient, diagnostic and treatment centre on Fitzhardinge Street and a surgical centre on Bentinck Street. The Schoen Clinic London hospital is just minutes away from both. With this acquisition, Fortius Clinic creates a unique centre of excellence in orthopaedics and sports medicine in central London, which will open a complete end-to-end pathway from initial consultation through to treatment and recovery.

Jim McAvoy, CEO of Fortius Clinic, said: “This acquisition is a significant step forward for Fortius Clinic, as it allows us to expand our range of services and offer a more comprehensive service to our patients. It complements our existing facilities, providing us with the extra capacity, options and flexibility to support our consultants and patients at a dedicated centre of excellence in the heart of London. We are excited to welcome Schoen Clinic London’s consultants, clinical teams and colleagues to the Fortius Clinic family, and we look forward to delivering world-class care to even more patients as we strive to become Europe's trusted partner in orthopaedics and sports medicine.”

All Schoen Clinic London members of staff will be transferred across to Fortius Clinic and patient care will continue as normal throughout the transition period. Completion of the acquisition is subject to limited regulatory approvals.
