Virtus Health (VRT) is set to acquire Adora Fertility and three day hospitals, collectively the “Adora businesses”.

The assisted reproductive services (ARS) provider entered a share sale agreement with healthcare stock, Healius (HLS), to acquire its Adora businesses.

The Adora clinics have a demonstrated track record of achieving growth and are fitted with modern equipment.

According to Virtus Health, these businesses will support its four ARS clinics and three day hospitals across Australia.

VRT Group CEO Kate Munnings commented on the acquisition.

“This acquisition supports our ambition to increase consumer choice by offering diverse models of care across new locations,” she said. “It also takes our day hospital network to ten facilities and represents our entry into Western Australia.”

The new shares are expected to settle on August 26 and commence trading on the following day.

In addition to the acquisition and placement, Virtus Health released its financial results for the 2021 financial year.
