GERMANY’S Fresenius Medical Care AG and Co. plans to open four more clinics in the Philippines by end-2017, a trade official said.
Fresenius Medical Care Philippines, which operates 21 dialysis clinics all over the country, opened its shared service center in Alabang in 2015, servicing the accounting and finance operations of 30 countries.
“In terms of its medical care operations, they see the need to further expand their operations in the country to 25 clinics by end 2017,” Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said over the weekend.
The company did not disclose investment figures for the expansion plan, Lopez told The Manila Times.
He added that the company is targeting to have up to 37 clinics in the country by 2020.
From a staff complement of 77 in 2017, Fresenius Medical Care will increase this to 130 employees in three years.
Meanwhile, Fresenius Kabi, one of the four business segments of the Fresebius Group, also plans to open its information technology-business process management operations in the Philippines in the short term, according to Lopez.
Fresenius Kabi is a global healthcare company that offers employees of diverse cultures and backgrounds a wide range of fulfilling and challenging career and personal growth opportunities both domestically and internationally.
Fresenius is dedicated to improving patients’ lives, creating a worthwhile future and providing the highest quality in renal dialysis devices.
