The Infanta Mercedes Medical Centre is located in one of the busiest business and residential areas of Madrid, operating in the market since 1990, while the other two centres, El Mirador Polyclinic and Colmenar Viejo Radiodiagnosis, are located in the north of Madrid and have been operating since 2011. With this acquisition, Affidea Spain reaches 40 clinics at country level.
