Ekkehard Friedrich, an Eos Capital partner leading the transaction, said his company is looking forward to building on this foundation and strengthening the healthcare sector in Namibia.
Namibia’s health sector over the years has emerged as one of the investment areas attracting private capital.

However, public health has been a struggle.

EMG is a Namibian Walvis Bay-based private healthcare group, which started out as a radiology centre at Walvis Bay in 1998.

It has since branched out to own the Welwitschia Hospital and has interests in several other healthcare entities.

Since its inception in 1994, its mission has changed from distributing pharmaceuticals, equipment, and medical devices, to “Making a Difference” in healthcare by providing world-class medical solutions to the local market.

With a more focused marketing approach, Erongomed has become a reliable partner in the Namibian healthcare sector.
