CARE Hospitals launch India's biggest outpatient centre

Friday February 01, 2013 08:11:35 PM, IANS

Hyderabad: CARE Hospitals Friday launched an integrated outpatient centre, the biggest of its kind in the country.

Set up at a cost of Rs.30 crore in the upmarket Banjara Hills here, the centre provides a wide array of outpatient services in a single dedicated location.

B. Somaja Raju, cardiologist and chairman of CARE Hospitals -- the fifth-largest chain of multi-speciality hospitals in India -- told reporters that the centre would provide patients with professional and speciality medical help.

The centre will be be formally inaugurated by former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Feb 4.

It is the 13th hospital of the Hyderabad-based group since its inception in 1997.

The six-storeyed facility has 100 consultation rooms, state-of-the-art operation theatres for day care surgeries, dialysis unit, wellness centre, diagnostics, pharmacy and optical.

"We came out with the idea of having such a facility away from hospitals to decongest them. This will also protect the outpatients and other visitors like children from possible infection," he said.

N. Krishna Reddy, CEO, CARE Hospitals, said the centre was set up as part of the expansion plans following the recent investment of $110 million in the company by Advent International, a leading global private equity firm. "This investment is for both expansion and for the exit of earlier investors," he said.

The group plans to set up another full-fledged hospital at Gachibowli, an IT hub in Hyderabad. Two more hospitals will come up at Visakhapatnam and Bhubaneswar.

CARE Hospitals, which currently has 13 hospitals in five states, plans to double its bed strength to 3,200 in two-and-half years.
