Deutsche Intensivpflege Holding (DIH), the health service provider, will take over Linde REMEO Deutschland GmbH (REMEO).
Based in Dresden, DIH specialises in outpatient intensive care and home mechanical ventilation, attending to patients in their home environment or in sheltered housing. REMEO offers medium and long-term care for respiratory patients with subacute and chronic conditions.
In Germany, REMEO cares for its patients with a total of around 200 employees at seven locations. The employees at existing REMEO locations will be taken on by DIH.
The REMEO Respiratory Centre was the result of a landmark public-private partnership between Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, BOC Ltd and REMEO Healthcare Ltd, the latter two being subsidiaries of The Linde Group.
The first REMEO centre was officially opened in October 2014 in Redhill, Surrey.
