Collaborates with Goel Group of Industries to launch a 300-bed multi-speciality tertiary care corporate hospital
Manipal Hospitals has entered into a long-term collaboration with Raipur-based Goel Group of Industries for setting up a 300-bed high-end tertiary care healthcare facility in the city. The new, to be constructed, the facility would add to Manipal Hospital’s integrated network today of 28 hospitals spread across 15 cities with over 7,800 beds and a talented pool of 4,000 doctors and over 11,000 employees.
Goel Group, in close consultation with Manipal Hospitals, will be engaged in the construction and setting up of the marquee healthcare facility. The greenfield hospital would be built in phases, with an initial bed capacity of 300 beds with a potential to go up to over 500 beds.
The project should be ready for commercial operationalisation three years from now. This facility, when completed, will provide Manipal Hospitals with its maiden entry into the state capital in Central-East India and would be best placed to provide ease of access and comprehensive care to everyone across this fast-growing city and the region.
Speaking on the announcement, Dr Ranjan Pai, Chairman, Manipal Education and Medical Group said, “We are pleased to enter into a partnership with Goel Group on the project and this addition is in line with our strategic imperative to enter state capitals and newer geographies. We believe that with our track record of superior clinical outcomes and patient services, this hospital is a reiteration of our commitment to meet the healthcare needs of some of the underserved segments in the state of Chhattisgarh and neighbouring states.”
Narendra Goel, MD, Goel Group said, “We are glad to be collaborating with Manipal Hospitals, who are pioneers in the healthcare industry across the country. The Greenfield project announcement is a great step towards affordable, quality and accessible healthcare to all people. The pandemic has acted as a transformation catalyst enabling our people for universal access to the best treatment services. The Goel Group and family have always believed that philanthropic activities and business strategy are not antagonistic to each other and synergy between the two is beneficial for society and the nation at large. Together with Manipal Hospitals, we aim to provide the much-needed fillip to bring in the strong clinical expertise and experience of top specialists from across the country, coupled with the finest infrastructure which we are known to offer.”
