Chennai-based Dr Agarwals Eye Hospitals has established its presence in the Tricity region by acquiring five eye hospitals, including two in Chandigarh, two in Panchkula, and one in Mohali. These include units of Mirchia’s Laser Eye Clinic, JP Eye Hospital and Dr Monica’s Eye Clinic, which have been eyecare centres of repute in the area for several years. The acquisition has expanded the presence of Dr Agarwals Eye Hospitals to Punjab, Haryana, and Chandigarh, taking the total tally of its existing centres across the country to 110.
Said Dr Amar Agarwal, Chairman, Dr Agarwals Eye Hospitals, “North India, especially Punjab and Haryana, is a very important market for us due to the huge unmet demand for super-specialty eyecare and advanced capabilities in treating eye diseases. We are delighted to establish our presence in Chandigarh, Panchkula, and Mohali and are fully committed to offering the best eyecare to our patients. We will be introducing for the people of Tricity latest technologies for basic and advanced procedures as well as diagnostic tests and state-of-the-art surgeries in eyecare on par with international standards.”
Dr Adil Agarwal, CEO, Dr Agarwals Eye Hospitals, “We have aggressive growth plans, especially for North India and states like Punjab and Haryana. We have added more than 60 units to our network in the past five years alone, and plan to double our current network of hospitals to more than 200 in the next three to four years.”
The company has been on a growth spree across the country through acquisitions and establishing new facilities. To fuel its expansion and deploy latest technologies, the company raised over Rs 1,000 crore recently from TPG Growth and Temasek in the country’s largest fund raise in the eyecare space.
