Attendo’s history began in February 1985. It was a time when nearly all health and social care was handled by public monopolies. Hardly anyone realised that private actors could be a part of the Nordic welfare model.
A few entrepreneurs within the former state company Procordia came up with the idea to modernise the care for older people. They wrote a business plan that focused on offering new, flexible solutions for high quality care in a society with an ageing population.
Despite the tough conditions, they received their first contract for conducting home care services in Stocksund. Attendo continue to do this today – but also much, much more.
Today, Attendo has more than 19,000 employees at over 500 units in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark. 24,000 clients come to us to have their care needs met, and over three quarter of a million patients book health or dental care with us in Finland.
We are the industry’s leading actor with regard to quality work, and we consistently receive high ratings from clients, patients, relatives, employees and customers.
