Strategic Overview

The strategic focus of Mediclinic and its subsidiaries is to deliver high-quality healthcare services and provide an optimal patient experience in Switzerland, Southern Africa and the Middle East. To this end, Mediclinic continued to invest in its people, clinical facilities and technology during the year. The Group’s international scale enables it to unlock further value through promoting collaboration and best practice between its divisions and to extract further synergies and cost-efficiencies across a complementary service set in the continuum of care.

There is a clear underlying long-term demand for Mediclinic’s services which is expected to remain robust, underpinned by inter alia an ageing population, the growing disease burden and technological innovation. In addition, there is an increased focus on the affordability of healthcare delivery, resulting in changing care delivery models and greater regulatory intervention, the impact of which the Group is actively working to compensate. This is in line with Mediclinic’s philosophy of making long-term decisions informed by its core business as well as the changing environment.
