Athera is Germany’s largest therapeutic service provider with more than 115 therapy centres and around 1,000 employees. In addition to its core competence of physiotherapy, the group’s service portfolio includes occupational therapy, speech therapy, osteopathy and medical fitness. Every year Athera provides over 1.5 million treatments in its various service segments.

Waterland acquired the majority in the physiotherapy group (at the time operating under the brand of Rehacon) in spring 2019. The group’s objective is to achieve further growth through the acquisition and opening of additional therapy centres. A nationwide network offering optimum therapeutic facilities for patients is established through the continuous extension of the range of therapies provided and the number of therapy centres.

With Waterland’s support Athera has already been able to integrate nineteen therapy centres into the group.
