Vitanas and PFLEGEN & WOHNEN HAMBURG are one of the biggest private operators of nursing homes in Germany with a combined 8.300 slots for individuals dependent on care. Former owners of Vitanas were the family of Nikolai P. Burkart (Burkart Verwaltungen GmbH). The PFLEGEN & WOHNEN HAMBURG GmbH was equally owned by the Andreas Franke consortium and Vitanas. Both companies developed positively under the former owners. Today, the facilities of PFLEGEN & WOHNEN HAMBURG are equipped with modern technologies, satisfying needs of residents, whilst creating pleasant working conditions for all employees. This was enabled through substantial investments and led to PFLEGEN & WOHNEN HAMBURG’s transformation into the leading operator in terms of quality in the greater Hamburg area. The former shareholders of both companies are confident that residents, their relatives and employees can expect a bright future. Oaktree possesses broad knowledge in the German market due to many investments in various industries and has already gathered experience in the health care industry.
