Company profile

Spire Healthcare is one of the UK’s largest private hospital providers with 39 hospitals and 8 clinics across England, Wales and Scotland. We also own and operate the sports medicine, physiotherapy and rehabilitation brand, Perform. The company offers a full range of integrated surgical, medical and diagnostic services.

Spire was formed from the sale of BUPA Hospitals to private equity company Cinven in 2007. Since then, it has periodically added further hospitals and clinics, including 10 Classic hospitals in 2008 and, most recently, the acquisition of St Anthony’s hospital in Greater London in May 2014. Since its inception, the Group has made significant capital investments in its estate, and continues to deliver excellent care with leading clinical outcomes and high levels of patient satisfaction.

As of December 2019, the Group employed over 13,300 (including bank workers) employees nationwide and has 7,300 experienced, self-employed consultant surgeons and other clinical specialists. In 2019, the Group generated revenue of £980.8 million, and operating profit growth of £94.4 million.
