    Overview

    Founded in 2000, Vedici is one of the main providers of private acute care in France. Upon 3i’s exit, it was the fourth largest provider, had c.6,000 staff and ran c.4500 beds in 35 care facilities located between Paris and southern / south-western France.

    3i invested in Vedici in 2010 to support both its organic and buy-and-build growth strategies.

    Highlights under our ownership

    • Vedici grew significantly under 3i’s ownership, increasing its market share to become the fourth largest provider of private acute care in France
    • Increased the number of beds by 70% to c.4,500 and more than doubled the number of private hospitals and rehabilitation centres
    • Through several sale & lease back deals, 3i helped Vedici to strengthen its balance sheet and execute organic and external growth opportunities
    • 3i worked with management to restructure the group, including the set-up of a full PMO function; the overhaul of the IT systems; the creation of a central “best practices” team; the launch of several optimisation programs including “staff management best practices roll-out”; and group procurement synergies
    • 3i’s Business Leaders Network helped strengthen the management team, including through the introduction of the COO, CFO and IT Director.
    “3i’s extensive support has helped us strengthen the leadership team, increase scale quickly and improve operational efficiency. Today, we look forward to continuing to build on our success in order to become the partner of choice to all local authorities in France.” Jérôme Nouzarède, CEO, Vedici
