Careflex and Medical Group join forces

Careflex Zorg Groep has acquired a majority interest in Medical Groep, with the support of Bolster Investment Partners. Medical Groep based in Heerenveen is a full-service partner for healthcare organizations. By joining forces, a strong and market leading party in healthcare is created with a total of 800 healthcare professionals and a national coverage. Jos van Leeuwen, director and shareholder of Medical Groep, was looking for a partner to scale up and expand the business. After the acquisition, van Leeuwen will remain actively involved within the company.

Since 1999, Medical Groep has been offering flexible staff for day-to-day services at healthcare institutions in the northern part of the Netherlands, primarily in nursing- and home care. Medical Groep provides its services using the in-house developed planning tool ‘Planspider’. Medical Groep was awarded ‘Best Employer’ in the period 2017-2020 by Effectory, which annually surveys over 500,000 employees.

Careflex Zorg Groep is an idealistic healthcare provider with the mission to create an enjoyable day and better life for clients within the disabled care, youth care, psychiatry and elderly care. As a subcontractor in healthcare, Careflex supports healthcare institutions across the country with the most complex healthcare questions. Careflex is recognized as ‘Best Workplace’ and is in the national top ten of large employers at Great Place to Work.

Careflex has the ambition to expand within elderly care, while Medical Group can broaden its existing position within nursing- and home care with services for disabled-, youth-, or mental health care. In addition, the combination of both organizations offers all contracted professionals a diversity and broader range of work within the different segments of the healthcare sector.
