  • Affidea España, a renowned provider of diagnostic imaging services, collaborates with Clínicas Beiman, specialized in comprehensive health care for athletes, in this new initiative that provides the town of Guadix with an advanced magnetic resonance imaging service and complete assistance in sports medicine.

Madrid, November 25, 2022-. Affidea, Europe's largest provider of advanced diagnostic, outpatient and oncology services, yesterday inaugurated a new healthcare project in Guadix (Granada) in collaboration with Clínicas Beiman, an accredited outpatient medical provider specializing in sports medicine with eight centers in Andalusia. This new first-class medical center specializes in comprehensive care for the locomotor system and radiodiagnosis. The clinic, located at 17 María Zambrano Street, has a surface area of 500 square meters and will serve the region of Guadix and municipalities throughout the central and eastern part of the province of Granada.

Affidea Radiodiagnóstico and Clínicas Beiman cover in the clinic the full circle of medical care with a high-field magnetic resonance equipment by Affidea, a leading company in diagnostic imaging at international level, and with powerful areas of sports medicine and traumatology by Clínicas Beiman, in addition to a room of 100 square meters dedicated to advanced physiotherapy, which is one of the hallmarks of the Andalusian company.

The opening ceremony of this new center took place yesterday in Guadix, and was attended by health professionals from different fields and management representatives of both companies, accompanied by the mayor of the town, Jesus Rafael Lorente Fernandez, who stressed "the illusion of inaugurating a new business, health, in the city." Lorente Fernández pointed out that "this infrastructure is essential for the city and for the region to be able to make an accurate diagnosis with the latest technology. It shows that private and public activities are compatible: there is symbiosis in favor of the health of the citizens".

Theo Kravvas, Country Manager of Affidea Spain, pointed out that "we are very pleased to announce the opening of our new center here in Guadix. This is the second center we have opened in the community of Andalusia, following the opening a few months ago of a diagnostic imaging center in El Ejido, within the Vithas medical center. The opening of the new centers is part of our strategy to continue our growth in Andalusia and improve the range of healthcare services we offer to public and private patients. We will continue to seek synergies with outpatient services, a sector that we have been exploring in recent years, and we are sure that with the know-how of our partner Clínicas Beiman we will be able to achieve this. Both companies are committed to offering a quality service with fast access to all patients and we are very excited about this new collaboration in Guadix. We would like to thank the local community for the assistance they have provided and we are confident that the community will benefit from our services in the region".

The general manager of Beiman Clinics, Benjamin Ruiz, stressed that "we bring in the territory to the inhabitants of the entire region of Guadix our first class medical services in the care of the musculoskeletal system and our specialization in the health care of the athlete, and we do it with the best possible partners. It is a privilege to have such a fast and accurate diagnostic tool as Affidea's MRI, managed by a team of the highest prestige, in the same healthcare space".

For Affidea Spain, this is its second center in the Andalusian region, to which it brings its high level of expertise in radiodiagnosis, specifically in magnetic resonance imaging. Affidea now has 43 centers in Spain, serving more than 545,000 patients each year and working with more than 1,100 professionals. Affidea Spain expands its geographical presence throughout the national territory, with a reinforced capacity in outpatient services that allows it to be one of the preferred health care providers for companies and private health insurers.

This is the tenth project for Clínicas Beiman. Beiman Clinics began its activity in Jerez more than ten years ago and already has a presence in all the Andalusian provinces and Pamplona. In addition, its Beiman Capillary unit, specialized in hair micrografting, has branches in Jerez, Seville, Cordoba and Granada. The general manager of Beiman Clinics has explained that the group continues to work on its territorial expansion and to strengthen its leadership as a leading specialty clinic in the integral health of the athlete.
