09-10-2020. Mediterrania Capital Partners, the Private Equity firm focused on growth investments for SMEs and mid-cap companies in North and Sub-Saharan Africa, is pleased to announce that its portfolio company Akdital Holding has opened a new oncology department providing diagnostic and treatment services at the Casablanca Ain Sbaâ private hospital in the Hay Mohammadi Ain Sbaâ prefecture.
A dedicated oncology wing, with a 12-person day hospital and a radiotherapy department containing two bunkers equipped with the latest generation of accelerators, recently opened its doors there. This new centre fulfils a vital need for the region, as until now all oncology centres were concentrated in Casa Anfa. In Morocco, the number of cancer patients has been increasing significantly to reach approximately 50,000 new cases diagnosed each year, with many patients requiring an early start of treatment.
Dr Rochdi Talib, Founder and CEO of Akdital Holding, said: “This centre will serve the entire population of the periphery of Casablanca, including the cities of Mohammadia, Zenata and Benslimane, which until now have had no public or private cancer treatment centres whatsover.”
Founded in 2011, Akdital began operations with the Jerrada Clinic in Casablanca and since 2018 has been carrying out a major investment plan with the construction of four new multidisciplinary and specialist health establishments: the Ain Borja clinic (2018), the Casablanca International Oncology Centre (2019), the Longchamps clinic (2019) and the Casablanca Ain Sbaâ private hospital (2019).
With a total capacity of 550 beds, Akdital’s clinics and hospitals provide a variety of healthcare services including cardiology, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, oncology, radiotherapy, intensive care, neonatal care, etc. The group is planning to continue its expansion with new developments in El Jadida, Agadir and Tangiers.
