Our group

Medipass is part of Ergéa Group, a pan-European cancer care and diagnostic imaging services platform. The Ergéa Group has been formed through acquisitions in the healthcare sector, bringing together companies with distinct and complementary business models and company cultures.

With medical doctors establishing the strategic course in our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee, Ergéa Group is a physician-led organisation that, by default, places patients and healthcare professionals at the heart of the healthcare system. We chose the name Ergéa to symbolise the patient-centric mindset we share across the group.

Like Western medicine itself, the name Ergéa has Greek roots. In Greek, érgo means 'work', and ygeía means 'health'. The blending of these two words as Ergéa can be roughly translated to "working for health". The translation 'working for health' captures our ambition to bring better healthcare to the place where it has the most significant impact – at the patient interface. This is where the healthcare system meets the patient to make a difference in each individual's life.


Our journey

We have a storied history dating back to the 1990s, when we were the pioneers in implementing and managing MRI clinical services in Italy. Since then, we’ve become the leading provider of technological innovation and required organisational frameworks across diagnostic imaging and cancer care in Italy – driven by our excellent service record and commitment to supporting local health ecosystems.

As we move forward, we remain committed to serving our customers in the same spirit of partnership, diligence and integrity that have helped us gain their trust.

Here are some key milestones on our journey.
