In 2014, the first vancomycin-resistant (encoded by vanA) Enterococcus faecium isolate belonging to sequence type 203 (ST203) and complex type 859 (CT859) was detected in Denmark. In 2016, 64% of the Danish clinical vanA E. faecium isolates belonged to ST203 and CT859. Using Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) RS II sequencing, we describe the genome of ST203 CT859 vanA E. faecium.
