Amar Ujala Group has announced its diversification into healthcare business with the launch of Ujala Healthcare. The Group has set aside Rs 200 crore for next few years for investment in healthcare and is looking for strategic partners.
Probal Ghosal, Director, Amar Ujala, said, “Amar Ujala is creating a modern healthcare brand based on the principles of awareness and social equity in Tier- 2 and Tier- 3 cities of India. The business is about care, not just healthcare.”
“The idea is not to just run hospitals but introduce global standards to those with limited access to quality healthcare outside the metros. In keeping with the Group’s ethos, there’s a clear social dimension to the business which involves creating awareness for good health, timely need for medical tests, diagnosis,postoperative recovery standards and above all bringing back the trust in the medical system which is hugely lacking outside the metros,” he added.
Amar Ujala has evolved a strategy to provide facilities and state of the art technology in small towns in India where healthcare facilities are uneven and not dependable. Healthcare at your doorstep is the credo of Ujala Healthcare.
Beginning with Ujala Hospital in Kashipur area of Uttaranchal near Jim Corbett National Park, Amar Ujala has in its pipeline three to four hospitals in UP and Uttaranchal which will significantly impact existing healthcare ecosystem and set new benchmarks both in terms of access, affordability and offering treatment which were out of bounds for patients in those areas.
