Expansion in India’s health Sector: Sanjay Dalmia Group Forays into Medical Tourism
India-based industrialist Sanjay Dalmia has ventured into medical tourism through his subsidiary Dalmia Healthcare. It is a robust move towards promoting Ayurveda globally, along with all other streams of medical treatment.
India has established itself as one of the most favourable destinations for medical tourism. It mainly accounts for a number of technological advancements, which have helped in improving patient care.
Sanjay Dalmia looks forward to offering every possible medical treatment consultation to all international as well as domestic patients through Dalmia Medicare. The unit specializes in the best ayurvedic and allopathic medicines at subsidized prices. It is currently managing a growing portfolio of 83 quality hospitals and nursing homes as well as 496 doctors and 23 diagnostic centers.
“We want India to become the number one country in healthcare products and services. To fulfill this dream, I want our youth from the related industry, such as tourism to join me in this mission. We are looking forward to creating a strategic alliance with a trusted partner who can facilitate in bringing patients from Iran, Afghanistan, the Middle East, Europe including Spain, Mauritius, USA, and other countries,” said Sanjay Dalmia.
“My healthcare endeavors are an extension of my commitment towards the nation. It is time to show the world the remedial power of Ayurveda. Based on ancient science, Ayurveda and Siddha medicine systems continue to amaze the world with their fantastic curative powers. Combined with Yoga, Ayurveda has reinforced a worldwide belief in the age-old Indian wisdom and strengthened its image,” added Dalmia.
According to Sanjay Dalmia, Ayurveda is one of the most effective and distinctive remedial approaches to health and disease. “In Ayurveda lies a pragmatic solution to all health disorders and ailments. Ayurvedic therapies help in restoring the organic functions of the body. They promote health and well-being by harmonizing the mind, body, and spirit,” he said.
The relatively low cost of medical treatment in India is one of the major reasons for the expansion of the medical tourism industry.
A number of surveys show that the majority of the people who travel to Asia for medical treatment end up in India because it’s cost-effective.
Talking about the increasing scope of medical tourism in our country, Sanjay Dalmia said, “Medical tourism is a growing sector in India. We see huge potential in this sector. In October 2015, India’s medical tourism sector was estimated to be worth $3 billion. It is projected to grow to $7-8 billion by 2020. We believe not just our country but the entire world can benefit from the growth of this sector.”
Certainly, with each step towards medium tourism, the horizon of India’s medical segment continue to expand, creating new benchmarks of quality and excellence.
Sanjay Dalmia’s move of venturing into medical tourism in India secures great hope for the healthcare sector.
