We take care of you and your health. Every day.

Professionalism, a warm welcome, and humanity: this is what the KOS Group offers every day, with a network of healthcare and social welfare dedicated to assisting frail people, care, rehabilitation, and diagnostics.

A full range of services offered for your health: from outpatient services to rehabilitation, mental health and public healthcare for the elderly.

Top-level specialisations and multidisciplinary skills for your health


Specialised in intensive rehabilitation, with the aim of maximum functional recovery.


Residential Care Homes and Day Centres. Peace of mind for you and your loved ones.


A multidisciplinary approach for patients of all ages, at every stage of the illness.


Technology and professional expertise for the health of the whole family.


A leader on the Italian panorama with over 13,000 beds in Italy and Germany. The KOS Group combines specialist skills, widespread presence, professionalism and a focus on people.

We believe in improving clinical and public healthcare practices to provide personalised answers to the needs of every single patient, guest and caregiver. We work every day to create value for our communities, stakeholders, and shareholders, making the most of professionalism and talent, also through our KOS Academy training courses.

Changes in demographics, technology developments, and the complexity of social health and welfare needs: in a rapidly changing context, such as private healthcare, we work alongside the public service to expand our overall offer of health and wellness services.

This comes together in an offer of healthcare and assistance services of the highest quality, in the fields of chronic illness and mental health, in the rehabilitation of advanced diagnostics services and high-tech treatments, as well as local services for acute illnesses.

Responsibility, client focus, professionalism, respect, transparency, and a sense of belonging. These principles guide every aspect of what we do, contributing to the creation of an inclusive environment and constant growth.

  • The KOS Group started out in 2002, under the name of HSS-Holding Sanità e Servizi, led by Claudio Stabon and Giuseppe Vailati Venturi, with Prof. Piero Micossi at the helm of the project.
  • Over the years, the KOS Group has followed a growth path, through the acquisition and start up of new facilities, starting with the first three care homes in Liguria in 2003.
  • In 2004 KOS entered the field of psychiatric rehabilitation with Redancia, a company running residential homes for psychiatric rehabilitation in Liguria.
  • With the acquisition of 100% of Residenze Anni Azzurri, in 2006, the Group grew to a national business concern, placed among the top private operators in social welfare.
  • In 2007, KOS consolidated its presence in the rehabilitation sector, acquiring Santo Stefano, an historic concern in the Marche region.
  • The choice of the name KOS dates back to 2009. The inspiration comes from the Greek island and birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine.
  • In 2019, the Group entered Germany, acquiring 100% of Charleston Holding, a company managing 52 care homes for the elderly.
  • In recent years, KOS has continued its growth through the acquisition and construction of new community and health facilities and the introduction of innovative services, such as telemedicine, across all business areas.

Our commitment


Safe, suitable care

Quality means standardised processes, guidelines, and protocols for the safety of patients and operatives alike, as well as an exhaustive system of monitoring and continued training.


Technological development for the healthcare of the future

Robotics, virtual reality, electronic patient records, remote telemedicine and tele-rehabilitation are the aids we invest in to offer the healthcare of the future, today.


Working hard for a better future

Our care and attention also extend to economic (understood as value generation and growth), social (the satisfaction of our patients and local communities) and environmental sustainability. Our Sustainability Report is proof of our commitment.
