Capio Diagnostics signs radiology agreement with VGR
Capio Diagnostik has signed a new four-year radiology agreement with the
Västra Götaland region of Sweden, commencing in September this year. The
agreement will lead to sharply increased volumes within mammography and
other diagnostic areas.
Capio Diagnostik AB has signed a new radiology agreement with the Västra
Götaland region of Sweden (VGR). The agreement is for a period of four
years, with an option to extend for an additional year. The agreement
becomes effective on September 1, 2003.
The agreement will result in significantly increased volumes within
Capio´s conventional radiology, mammography, computerised tomography
(CT) and ultrasound. The volume of examinations covered by the agreement
will increase from the present level of approximately 34,000 to 63,000
per year. This means that Capio Diagnostik will account for more than 75
per cent of purchased radiology operations in the Gothenburg area. The
operations will be based on Capio Diagnostik radiology activities at
Lundby Hospital in Gothenburg and will also result in the establishment
of a new clinic in central Gothenburg.
"We will be assigned increased responsibility for radiology operations
in Gothenburg and regard this as a sound acknowledgement of the quality
and service of the diagnostic care we have provided during our many
years of co-operation with the region. Our operations at Lundby Hospital
in Gothenburg are highly successful and will now be further developed to
provide patients with the best possible service," says Dan Olsson,
Managing Director of Capio Diagnostik AB.
Capio Diagnostik AB is part of the Capio Group's Diagnostics Business
Area, which is represented in six countries and has revenues of more
than SEK 1,000 M per year. Capio Diagnostik in Sweden has annual
revenues of approximately SEK 600 M.
