Akacia Medical Strengths

Where our story began

OUR HISTORY

As a subsidiary of Safika Holdings – one of the most respected investment houses in South Africa – we are part of an esteemed, admired and highly successful group. Our beginnings date back to 1999 when Safika formalised its intention to move into the healthcare arena with the formation of Safika Health. Several deals and acquisitions later, MSQ Health was established – the company that ultimately evolved into who we are today. On an acquisition trail; in 2016 MSQ Health purchased Akacia Medical, and along with it Clinisut. Restructuring within the group, and further acquisitions set in motion the formation of Akacia Medical & Healthcare Group. Along with this development, our CEO, Ronnie Krüger, and a new and board was appointed – an experienced management team that is taking the business forward to its next zenith.

OUR LEADERSHIP

Leadership is not a position or a title, it is about action and example.
