Enayati recently acquired a 51% stake in the firm for EUR 76,000.
Founded in 2011 by three former Regina Maria managers, Intermedicas is the first clinic in Romania specialized in second opinion medical services, with access to doctors in Europe, US and Japan. The company has partnerships with 100 hospitals and clinics, of which 15 private units in Romania, but also public hospitals.
