Spire aims to increase patient numbers with Lifescan acquisition

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

In a bid to boost its service offering and increase patient volumes, UK private hospital group Spire Healthcare has bought Lifescan, the country's leading provider of CT health checks, for £1.37m ($2.23m). Tunbridge Wells, Kent-based Lifescan checks for three major causes of death: heart disease, colorectal cancer and lung cancer. Founded in 2003, its clients include Tesco, Microsoft, Virgin, Saga and Bupa Wellness. It already operates within 12 of Spire's 37 private hospitals, and also has two stand-alone centres. London-based Spire believes the acquisition will lead to an increased number of patients being referred to its hospitals for follow-up care, and said it was "looking at opportunities to develop the service further". Lifescan will continue to be run by its current management team.
