Our heritage goes back to professor Nils Alwall, nephrology chair at Lund University, and one of the founding fathers of dialysis, who inspired the creation of Gambro Inc, one of the major dialysis equipment manufacturers for many decades.

Our origin dates back to the founding of Gambro Healthcare division and the opening of its first dialysis clinic in Sweden, Lund, in 1991.

From Sweden, Gambro Healthcare expanded to the rest of the world, and in 2007 operated 153 clinics in 11 countries, treating more than 12,000 renal patients.

In 2007, Gambro Healthcare was acquired by Bridgepoint with the vision to help healthcare systems around the world to provide universal access to world-class renal care. Along with the new vision, a new name – Diaverum – was adopted and introduced worldwide.

During the following years, Diaverum became synonymous with quality, clinical governance and a culture of true care, while during the same period it expanded substantially and today operates more than 400 clinics in 22 countries serving more than 39,000 patients globally.
