Edinburgh Clinic shareholding grows

Aspen has significantly increased its shareholding in the Edinburgh Clinic. The clinic is an outstanding facility and we have identified significant opportunities for growth and investment in the Edinburgh market. Aspen has increased its shareholding with a view to positioning the clinic for the next phase of its future development and expansion.

The transactions above are indicative of the on-going support from our parent company, United Surgical Partners International Inc., and our intentions to continue to expand our operations in the UK.
