The controlling stake in the Marbella-based Mills Medical positions The Hospital Group as a major player in overseas surgery, encouraging patients to recover in the sun and make their surgery part of their holiday abroad.
The partnership will allow consultants at one of The Hospital Group’s UK clinics to recommend an overseas partner that has the same values and high standards as the UK facility, to those clients who would prefer treatment abroad.
The Hospital Group will also be looking to grow Mills Medical’s domestic business as the company focuses on Spain’s growing demand for such procedures.
The Hospital Group Chief Executive, David Ross, said: “More and more people are opting for cosmetic surgery abroad as they see the benefits of recuperating in the sun. The opportunity to jet off and come back with a whole new look is ideal for those clients seeking a complete makeover package, but foreign surgical clinics are an unknown entity.
“Our new partnership with Mills Medical means our clients can be assured of, and trust in, the same high standards they would enjoy with The Hospital Group in the UK. Nowadays, people don’t have to choose between the holiday or the body of their dreams; they can have both.”
He added: “The high quality, rigorous standards for cosmetic and weight loss procedures in the UK is something that Spanish patients recognise. We will be looking to capitalise on our reputation and expertise to this emerging market.”
David Mills, Director of Mills&Mills, said: “We are very excited to be working alongside The Hospital Group. Director David Ross and I have known each other for a long time and we both have the same high ideals when it comes to patient care. We want to give people more choices and more affordable surgery; this merger will make that happen”.
