Houten – WEBWIRE

Springer Nature today announces the acquisition by its Springer Healthcare business of Medidact, part of Van Zuiden Communications – a medical communications agency targeting the Dutch healthcare market. Both companies reached an agreement on 24 April 2018. The acquisition fits perfectly into the strategy of Springer Healthcare Benelux to continue to grow as a leading provider of scientific communications and services.

Springer Healthcare acquires all Medidact activities. As a result of this acquisition, a small number of employees from Van Zuiden Communications will join Springer Healthcare. The Medidact brand continues to operate under its own name.

Medidact, based in the Netherlands, provides professional and congress information for the medical healthcare professional through a portfolio of magazines, websites, videos, e-mail and apps. It focuses mainly on the fields of oncology, hematology, rheumatology, neurology, infectious diseases, gastroenterology and lung diseases. The acquisition enables Springer Nature to continue to expand its successful specialist science communications portfolio.

Springer Healthcare has been active as a service provider for the healthcare sector for many years and has been operating in 22 countries with about 500 employees for 40 years. Together with partners, Springer Healthcare reaches the medical target group with content, conference reports, continuing education, videos and customised communications solutions.

Juliette Bos, director of Springer Healthcare Benelux: “We welcome the new colleagues and customers. Medidact helps to bring specialist content to life for its customers. This acquisition represents strategic growth for Springer Healthcare Benelux, which is both aligned with our core business and will help us to broaden our knowledge and expertise and offer our customers additional innovative forms of service. We look forward to the future and the continuation of our cooperation with the new colleagues from Medidact and its customers with great confidence.”
