Mumbai: The Hinduja Group has embarked on an ambitious Rs 2,500 crore programme for setting up a chain of boutique corporate hospitals across the country over the next two-years. The first in the line of such boutique hospitals, Hinduja Healthcare Surgical, has been set up in the city suburb of Khar, where the operations were soft-launched recently.

Hinduja said the group will build 5-6 more speciality hospitals having 100-200 beds across Mumbai followed by Bangalore and Hyderabad. "Our future plans include setting up boutique hospitals across the country," he said. Hinduja said several foreign investors have shown keen interest in the company`s health sector foray. "For the Group, Hinduja Healthcare is a significant diversification into the high-potential services sector of corporate hospitals," Hinduja said.

Hinduja Healthcare will be personalised quality healthcare hospitals, with world-class technology. Our multiple specialities include general surgery, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, surgical oncology, gynaecology, paediatric surgery and plastic surgery, Hinduja Healthcare Medical Director Vinod Chandiramani said. The focus across all facilities is to personalise the experience for the patient, from appointments and admission, to diagnosis, treatment and smooth checkouts, he said.

"Some of our star features include individual IPD and OPD spaces, 200 consulting doctors, a cath lab, a state-of-the art emergency area, dedicated floor to mother and child care, 5 fully equipped operation theaters, consulting rooms, physiotherapy and pre and post treatment," Chandiramani said speaking about the Khar facility.

Hinduja Healthcare draws its inspiration from our founder Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja who believed that health and education are fundamental rights of each individual," Hinduja said.
