Challenge Accepted!

‘I started by setting up a cardiac unit of 30 cardiologists which went on to become a leading cardiac facility in India. After seeing a huge success, a sudden jolt in the business came in the form of separation from my partners.

In the later years when expansion plans were undergoing, we saw an opportunity to partner with Medicover Hospitals, a highly respected European healthcare brand’,  mentions Dr. G. Anil Krishna, Chairman, Medicover India. Within a short span, Medicover Hospitals has emerged as India's fastest growing multispecialty hospital chain and has a vision of taking high quality and affordable healthcare closer to every home in India.
