The healthcare industry in Cyprus presents unique investment opportunities as a potential to become a regional medical center.
The country is very well connected internationally, an EU member with solid infrastructure, is the conduit of 3 continents, one of the safest countries in the world. The relatively lower cost of healthcare matched with the ideal climate, are the ingredients for potentially becoming an attractive “floating” hospital for medical tourism.
This opportunity was spotted 10 years ago by Mr. Andreas Savvides, CEO and Founder of Curis Network. “We are very happy to be celebrating our 10th anniversary this year and we are excited about our future plans” said Savvides.
“Curis Network has positioned itself to lead the transition to the new era and scale its operations. The network developed the first Cypriot smart health community, offers telehealth, home care, corporate wellness services and is engaged in medical tourism and oncology. Earlier this year we launched a regulated alternative investment fund as well - the first dedicated healthcare investment fund in Cyprus - and we are already in the fundraising stages to further develop e-health, long term and specialized care services” he explained.
Curis Network uses a hybrid delivery model bringing together physical and digital services under a single roof promoting interoperability and continuum of care. “Our aim is to revolutionize the healthcare industry in Cyprus by making access to care faster, more efficient and inclusive, while reducing cost. We want to create a care delivery model and adapt to the needs of the new norm where e-healthcare will play a vital role” said Savvides.
Savvides has international expansion plans in mind and will use Cyprus as a base. “The fund will greatly help us raise the needed capital not only to invest in our group, but in the whole healthcare industry as well. We are looking to grow with the success of the fund” he concluded.
