Medicover, headquartered in Sweden, was founded in 1995 and is now a leading international healthcare and diagnostics company. Medicover operates numerous outpatient and inpatient medical facilities. In 2022, Medicover generated sales of EUR 1,510 million and employed more than 44,000 staff worldwide. The parent company Medicover AB has been listed on the Stockholm stock exchange since 2017.
