Air Liquide is expanding its home healthcare activity in Poland with the acquisition of two companies, HELP! and Ventamed.
Poland is one of the largest countries in the European Union, with steady economic growth, and therefore offers development opportunities in industrial and healthcare markets.
Air Liquide’s latest acquisitions will enable Air Liquide to capitalize on these opportunities, providing its home healthcare services nationwide to patients who suffer from chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sleep apnea, or conditions requiring mechanical ventilation.
HELP! is a specialist in home respiratory healthcare and the leader of home-based ventilation in Poland, while Ventamed also specializes in home ventilation services and covers the western part of the country. Together, the two companies have around 20 employees.
