India’s Narayana Hrudayalaya plans health city in MexicoNovember 8th, 2008 - 5:12 pm ICT by IANS
Hyderabad, Nov 8 (IANS) Indian hospital major Narayana Hrudayalaya plans to set up a health city in Mexico that will also cater to patients from the US.”Our next project will be a health city in Mexico. We may tie up with some American hospitals for this project,” said Devi Shetty, eminent cardiologist and chairman of the Narayana Hrudayalaya group of hospitals.
Shetty was addressing a news conference here to announce the setting up of a health city - a multispecialty hospital with research facilities - in Hyderabad on the lines of the group’s famous facility in Bangalore.
“The health city in Mexico will be a 3,000 to 5,000-bed facility and we are looking for joint ventures,” he said adding that the government of Mexico had requested the group to set up a large health facility.
Sources said the health city would come up either in Mexico City, the capital of Mexico or at Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico.
Shetty said the proposed health city would also cater to the requirements of patients from America.
“We foresee healthcare delivery problems in the United States. They also have problems in undertaking a 20-hour journey to India for heart and other surgeries. As Mexico is closer to America, they will find it easy to undergo treatment there,” he said.
The chain of hospitals, which has already built one of the world’s biggest cardiac hospitals in Bangalore and is planning similar facilities in other cities, is reportedly in talks with the US-based Sutter Health for the Rs.10 billion health city project in Mexico.
The Rs.16 billion group, which currently has two hospitals in Bangalore and Kolkata, plans to invest Rs.50 billion over next five years in expanding its operations to six other Indian cities.
