Over the past eight years
substantial investment has been made in India's Private Healthcare
Sector, in excess of 100 million USD.
Specialist private hospitals with expert and dedicated staff,
combined with the state of the art equipment have been set in many
of India's major cities to meet the needs of the country's
increasingly affluent middle class comprised of about 200 million
people. Private Healthcare costs in India are a fraction of those in
the Western World including UK, USA and Canada.
private hospitals have two patient categories, (i) deluxe amenities
and (ii) subsidised. International patients are cared for in the
deluxe category, thus do not utilise resources available for the
subsidised category. On the contrary, revenues from International
patients contribute towards the subsidised services. Within this
deluxe category a superior service, in terms of comfort, catering
and entertainment is easily tailored, for example air conditioned,
en-suite private rooms, a great choice of western menus, satellite
television, provisions of English newspapers etc..
