Our origin dates back to the founding of Gambro Healthcare division and the opening of the first dialysis clinic in Sweden, Lund, in 1991.

From Sweden, Gambro healthcare clinics expanded to the rest of the world, and in 2007 operated 153 clinics in 11 countries, treating more than 12 000 renal patients.

In 2007, Gambro Healthcare was acquired by Bridgepoint with the vision to help healthcare systems across the world to provide universal access to world-class renal care and deliver life enhancing renal care to patients globally.

Together with the new vision, the name Diaverum was adopted and launched worldwide.

During the following years, Diaverum became synonymous with quality, clinical governance and culture of true care, while during the same period it has expanded substantially and today operates 440 clinics in 23 countries serving more than 38 000 patients globally.
