Falck acquires Skandinavisk Hälsovård AB

​Falck has acquired Swedish-based Skandinavisk Hälsovård AB, which provides doctors and nurses on a temporary basis throughout the Nordic region. With this acquisition, Falck expands its network of doctors, nurses and social and health care assistants and strengthens its position as an integral player in the healthcare system in the Nordic countries.


Skandinavisk Hälsovård AB is a Swedish-based company that annually places several thousand physicians at hospitals, medical clinics and similar facilities in Sweden. Most of the physicians are Swedish, although some are from other Nordic countries.


"Acquiring Skandinavisk Hälsovård AB ties in with our strategy of expanding in the healthcare sector in all of Scandinavia. Acquiring Skandinavisk Hälsovård enhances our position, also in terms of physicians, on the Swedish market, the largest market in the Nordic region", said director of Falck Healthcare, Jan Steenhard.
​Falck already operates Vikteam, placing physicians in temporary positions in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, and ActivCare A/S, mainly placing nurses and health care assistants in temporary positions in Denmark, Greenland and to a limited extent in Norway.
"Our access to physicians is key to creating new and innovative healthcare solutions. We expect to see more opportunities for public-private partnerships (PPP) in all of the markets, and providing physicians will be a pivotal point", explained Jan Steenhard.
Established in 2000, Skandinavisk Hälsovård AB has annual revenue of SEK 180 million and a network of several thousand physicians.
"We have achieved our goal and established a strong brand among customers as well as physicians and other health staff throughout Sweden. The group is now the country's principal staffing provider managed by physicians, and in Falck Healthcare we have found the right partner to enable us to continue expanding our network throughout the Nordic region," said founder and CEO of Skandinavisk Hälsovård Börje Eriksson, who will continue on as CEO of Skandinavisk Hälsovård under Falck's ownership.
