Country France
Region Bretagne
Investor Omnes Capital

Vivalto Santé was a leading private clinic manager in Brittany when Omnes first invested in the business in 2009. At that time, Vivalto Santé had three treatment centres with 725 bed spaces for minor surgeries and short-stay hospital treatments, together generating €96m in revenues. Omnes’s finances and expertise have supported an ambitious expansion programme and today Vivalto Santé runs ten clinics across Brittany, Loire, Ile de France and Rhône-Alpes. As a result of the expansion, revenues had increased to €305m by 2014 and bed spaces had more than doubled. The company was acquired by an group of investors led by CDC International Capital in 2016.
