#UK's Vanguard Healthcare plans expansion in #Europe

The operator of the world’s largest fleet of mobile operating theatres is targeting expansion in Europe in the wake of the ECB’s plan to inject €1.1 trillion into the Eurozone.
Vanguard Healthcare has appointed Mary Smallbone to the newly-created post of Managing Director Europe and is rolling out its UK-developed healthcare technology into mainland Europe.
Vanguard Chief Executive Ian Gillespie:”We see our future as both a technology partner for the NHS as well as a pan-European support service. We have lots of experience and have already carried out some contracts in mainland Europe.
Vanguard’s main business is providing mobile operating theatres and mobile wards, usually with experienced theatre staff, to NHS and private hospitals in the UK. More than 200,000 patients have been treated on its fleet of 37 mobiles which include three mobile endoscopy units.
