Two major private health care networks could merge in Kyiv
The Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMCU) has begun consideration of the case of the acquisition of Boris Hospital, one of the oldest private clinics in Kyiv, by the Cyprus company Satumco Limited, the major owner of Kyiv-based private large-scale Dobrobut health care network.
According to the AMCU, the case of a concentration of over 50% in Boris LLC was opened on January 4. On January 17, the anti-trust body announced a survey into such a concentration on the market of medical services.
Interested persons may submit their comments on the issue to the antimonopoly department until January 28, the economic news outlet Delo.ua wrote on January 17.
As was earlier reported, on May 2018, Dobrobut opened in Kyiv a clinic worth US$3 million. The health care network also plans to open in the capital two more clinics and a maternity hospital soon.
