Objectives of KOS initiative
- Create a national group: KOS’ development will be characterised by its widespread presence across Italy, with the exclusion of a few regions where contractual relations have assumed an excessively aleatory character.
- Develop a brand: the development of KOS involves the creation of one or more brands, recognisable at national level and distinctive for their high quality services, strong ethics and focus on the patient.
- Attract top professionals.
- Develop a balanced mix of services right across the socio-medical spectrum.
- Combine efficiency with top quality services, focusing investments on management activities (aligning the profit objectives of our shareholders whilst remaining attractive to our clients)
The market: our vision
The leading private groups in Italy generally started life as low-complexity institutions (care homes, rehabilitation, follow-up treatment, low invasive surgery) and then making a leap in quality with the growth in advanced technology.
Today the room for growth in the area of accredited hospital treatment for acute care is strongly influenced by budget and regional expenditure restraints.
In any case, the market offers opportunities in three areas:
1. chronic care (healthcare, psychiatry, rehabilitation, disability residences);
2. investment in and management of highly complex diagnostic and therapeutic technologies in major public hospitals (MRI, PET, Accelerators, proton therapy centres).
3. public licenses for the management of hospitals for redevelopment or the restructuring/reconversion of hospitals for closure, as well as for the management of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technology.
