Pluribus II


by Life

About us

Pluribus, a healthcare units management company, was formed by João Colarinha and João Ribeiro Santos, two doctors and university colleagues, with some experience in hemodialysis, who were later joined by two civil engineers and two lawyers. The company started the Treatment of Chronic Renal Disease, in 1981, at the Kidney Disease Clinic (CDR, in Portuguese).

To improve the quality of healthcare services, Pluribus developed, in the 1990s, several training programs for technical and auxiliary staff, which were co-financed by the former EEC.

In the year 2000, the 9 Clinics that were operating at the time were sold to the multinational company, Gambro. Following this sale, doctors João Colarinha, João Ribeiro Santos, José Diogo Barata, Francisco Ribeiro and João Bispo founded Pluribus II Internacional, which continued developing the project for the treatment of patients in Africa, and opened, in September of that same year, the Pluribus Africa Center of Hemodialysis, in Luanda.

In 2007, the Cascais and Sacavém Clinics were created, followed by the Benfica and Sintra Clinics. These 4 units were sold to the multinational company, DaVita, in 2018.

Currently, the company represents Baxter, a medical equipment, and consumables manufacturer, for the African markets with commercial activity in Angola and, more recently, in Equatorial Guinea.
