The private hospital operator Rhön-Klinikum is now without its two leaders: the CEO Wolfgang Pföhler will step down „at his own request and amicably“ at the end of the year. His possible replacement is Martin Siebert. Also, CFO Erik Hamann leaves imminently „to pursue a new professional challenge“. (Quote translated by

The relationship between the Rhön board and chairman Eugen Münch has been tense for some time now. Company founder and major shareholder Münch had initiated the company’s acquisition by Fresenius in spring this year.

Commentary: The Frankish hospital operator has not experienced much peace of late: in April the medical giant Fresenius‘ daughter company Helios announced an intended takeover bid for rival Rhön.

The takeover bid failed, however, when competitors including Sana, Asklepios and B.Braun took preventative action to buy shares in Rhön, preventing Fresenium from achieving their desired 90% stake. A second takeover bid later fizzled out too.

It was last heard that shareholders of Sana- a group of around 30 private insurance companies – are looking to acquire shares in Rhön outside of the Stock Exchange. The plan is to launch a takeover bid, should the shareholders be able to claim a 20% stake of Rhön.
