In an endeavour to cater people with better patient care through state-of-the art facilities, the Aster DM Healthcare is planning to invest about Rs 1000 crore in India.
The group having a wide network of hospitals and clinics in the Gulf countries and Kerala, aims to establish hospitals in different parts of countries. Hospitals equipped with best medical facilities including cutting-edge technologies will be established in Kerala, Bengaluru and Chennai.
“We plan to add 1500 beds to the existing 4300 in the country by 2021,’’ Dr Azad Moopen, chairman of the group, was quoted as saying by Economic Times.
Shedding more on the expansion plan, Moopen said the newly built 300-bed hospital in Kannur and the 240-bed facility in Bengaluru are almost ready.
Speaking on the sidelines of a press meet on awarding MBBS degree to the first batch of students from DM Wayanad Institute of Medical Sciences to be held on April 6, he said two more hospitals, one in Thiruvananthapuram and another in Chennai, are in the pipeline.
“Our aim is to make it one of the top ten medical colleges in the country by 2025,’’ he said.
