Unicare Holding AS and Kurbad Forvaltning AS have agreed on the transfer of all shares in Hokksund Rehabilitation Centre (HRC), from Spa Management AS to Unicare Holding AS. As of today, Hokksund is thus part of the Unicare group.

”This will strengthen our service to patients in need of rehabilitation, and it will be a good addition to Friskvernklinikken and Fram as we operate today. Unicare and HRC are both considering this collaboration as beneficial, and we now want to take our rehabilitation services to the next level”, says CEO of Unicare, Tom Tidemann.

Unicare is one of the largest private health care companies in Norway, with approximately 2,000 employees and 38 locations, mostly in Eastern Norway. The acquisition makes it possible to build an even larger environment within specialized rehabilitation, thus strengthening this offer to the patients.

”HRC welcomes the acquisition. We’re a rehabilitation center with high quality and a good reputation, and we see the acquisition as an opportunity to develop the center even further, and become a rehabilitation center for the future together with Unicare”, says Pål Stenbro, CEO of HRC.

Hokksund Rehabilitation Center delivers multidisciplinary, specialized rehabilitation for patient groups within orthopedics, cardiac, pulmonary, neurology, chronic musculoskeletal soft tissue pain and patients who have ailments that are a major obstacle to participation in work, socially and in the community. HRC anually treats 1500 patients, and with approximately 100 employees it is a workplace with great importance for employment in the community.

”We look forward to a good cooperation. A coordination of resources will also provide an improved service to our employees, who will be part of a larger professional community. That way we will also be able to provide a better service to our patients. The future of rehabilitation looks bright”, concludes Tidemann.
