Saúde was established in 2000 and is one of the largest health care
groups in terms of income operating in the Portuguese market.
The group provides its services through 20 units (including ten private
hospitals, a hospital of the national health service operated under the
Public-Private Partnership program, seven private outpatient clinics
and two senior residences), located in the North, Central and
Central-South regions of Portugal.
On February 2014, Luz Saúde became the first private company in the
health sector publicly listed.
On October 2014, the Portuguese insurer Fidelidade acquired 96% shares
of Luz Saúde, thus becoming the new majority shareholder of the company.
