B. Braun Australia Pty. Ltd. and Diaverum Australia Pty. Ltd. jointly announced today the acquisition of five Diaverum renal care centres in Australia and New Zealand by B. Braun.

In line with our current strategy, we are consolidating our operations and venturing into new markets. We are pleased to transfer the ownership of our dialysis centres to B. Braun, a pioneering provider of dialysis technology.”
