National Medical Care (US), the dialysis subsidiary of WR Grace (see above), is coming under fire after gaining a stronghold of the Portuguese dialysis market. Nine of the 25 clinics owned by the company have been purchased since 1980, while its share of the Portuguese dialysis market is just under 30%, says NMC. However, according to some Portuguese press reports, this exceeds the legal limit and the company risks a fine of Esc 100 million ($675,000). NMC denies this is the case.
