New Managing Director Diaverum Germany Fosters Integrated Renal Patient Care
MUNICH --(Business Wire)--
Diaverum, Europe's largest product independent and one of the world's
leading renal care service providers, is continuing its German success
story. By appointing Dr. Kornél Széchenyi as new Managing Director,
Diaverum accelerates the idea of an integrated renal patient care to
improve quality of life for renal patients.
After opening the first clinic in Germany in 2009, Diaverum has written
a remarkable success story in a highly competitive surrounding. Today
Diaverum provides dialysis to more than 1,500 patients with end stage
renal disease in 21 clinics, and other medical services to thousands of
additional patients. Amongst the recently acquired clinics are the four
dialysis centres of Alter Teichweg and Schlankreye.
"Our patients are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to constantly
improve their quality of life. By fostering the idea of integrated renal
patient care Diaverum sets a new standard in dialysis services", says
Dr. Kornél Széchenyi.
New Managing Director in Germany "Germany is a key market - and we are
ready to broaden our footprint and take on new business opportunities.
For Diaverum Dr Széchenyi is the best choice to drive further growth"
explains Dag Andersson, CEO and President of Diaverum.
Dr Széchenyi, a native Hungarian, is a qualified medical doctor and an
experienced health care manager. He started his career as a trauma
surgeon before moving into the 'business side' of healthcare with
Novartis in Hungary. For the last five years he held the position of
Managing Director for Diaverum in Hungary.
Under his leadership, Diaverum Hungary significantly increased the
number of patients and facilitated the availability and offering of
Peritoneal Dialysis treatments. During this time, Diaverum Hungary
achieved profitable growth despite a difficult economic climate and a
challenging reimbursement structure.
Dr Széchenyi reports to Mans Olsson, Director Area Central at Diaverum.
"Dr Széchenyi's skills and qualifications, and his broad experience in
both the medical as well as the business side of healthcare, identified
him as the ideal person to take on the German business", states Mans
