The Ramsay Group
Ramsay Health Care was established in 1964 and has grown to become a global hospital group, operating over 480 hospitals and day surgery facilities across 11 countries making it one of the largest and most diverse private healthcare companies in the world. Ramsay Health Care is well-respected in the healthcare industry for operating quality private hospitals and for its excellent record in hospital management and patient care. These features help to attract leading healthcare practitioners to work in our facilities.
Ramsay Health Care is Australia’s largest private hospital operator and a well-recognised brand in the industry. The company leads the way in developing the role of private healthcare in Australia’s balanced health care system. It is also recognised as a leader in teaching and research with an emphasis in its hospitals on both undergraduate and postgraduate training of the future medical and nursing workforce.
In 2007, Ramsay Health Care realised its offshore expansion plans acquiring Capio UK, the fourth largest operator of private hospitals in the UK. This acquisition provided a solid platform for growth outside Australia.
The company now employs more than 77,000 staff and treats 8.5 million patients in its hospitals and primary care clinics located in Australia, France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
Ramsay Health Care is extremely proud of the high quality of our staff, our excellent relationships with doctors and our commitment to improvement in all areas and our vision for the future. “The Ramsay Way” culture which recognises that people – our staff and doctors – are our most important asset, has been key to the Company’s ongoing success.
