Bad Neustadt a.d. Saale, 4 August 2011 -------- RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG confirms a

successful first half of 2011 and is on its targeted growth course:

A total of 1,147,893 patients were treated in the Group's hospitals in the

first six months of 2011. This translates into a rise of 12.1% compared

with the same period last year. Revenues climbed by 2.8% to reach around

EUR 1.3 billion. Net consolidated profit also rose by 18.6% to reach EUR

84.2 million in the first half of 2011. During the reporting period, EBITDA

stood at EUR 161.7 million, exceeding the figure of the same period in 2010

by 6.8%. During the same period, EBIT grew by 4.1% to EUR 102.3 million.

'The results of the first half year show that we have prepared ourselves

well (and in the right way) for the challenges brought by the new policy

requirements. Our forecast for 2011 is healthy. Thanks to the strong

co-operation within the Group network of hospitals, we will continue

steadfastly our path towards becoming an integrated healthcare provider in

the best interest of patients also in the second half of the year',

emphasised Wolfgang Pföhler, chairman of the Board of Management of


Operating cash flow grew by 15.4% and reached EUR 143.4 million in the

first six months of the current financial year.

After deducting minority interests in profit of EUR 2.4 million from net

consolidated profit of the first half, earnings per share (EPS) stands at

EUR 0.59 (previous year: EUR 0.49).


Based on the trend in service volumes and earnings for the first half, the

chairman of the Board of Management continues to expect financial year 2011

as a whole - even without further acquisitions and under the currently

known statutory framework conditions - to post revenues of roughly EUR 2.65

billion, an operating EBITDA of EUR 340 million and a net consolidated

profit of EUR 160 million, with the last two figures potentially

fluctuating within a range of plus or minus 5%.

'Strong growth in the medical growth fields of tomorrow'

Looking to 2011, Pföhler underscored that strong organic growth will be

continued also in the current financial year by ensuring the future

viability of the Group's care offerings. 'We recognise requirements and

changes in the structure of medical care early on and help shape these. For

this purpose we continuously promote the development of our healthcare

services in both the inpatient and the outpatient areas, and thanks to our

attractive offerings in the medical growth fields of tomorrow we are

ideally prepared for the future and continued buoyant growth.', Pföhler

said in conclusion.



RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG is one of the largest healthcare providers in Germany. Its

corporate objective is high-quality medical care for everyone. Currently,

our Group counts 53 hospitals at 43 sites as well as 35 medical care
