BUPA finds niche in India

Excellence in medical careBUPA is the British Provident Association, the largest independent health care organisation in the UK and has operations in seven others countries. BUPA owns and manages 39 acute care hospitals, 221 care homes, 34 health screening centres as well as networks occupational health centres, home care services and nursing services. BUPA is also the United Kingdom's largest private medical insurer.

Patient care and diagnostic facility As the Indian private health care market opens up, BUPA believes opportunities exist to develop 'one stop' health facilties with primary care and diagnostic facilties. The 'one stop' health clinics, known as polyclinics, are new to India's private healthcare sector. This is despite the fact that many employers in India are looking for help to improve the quality and manage the costs of providing health care to their workforces. BUPA hopes to take advantage of this gap in the Indian health care market by investing in polyclinics that offer a full spectrum of out-patient care and diagnostic facilities with comprehensive computerised records.

The joint venture between Piramal Enterprises Ltd and BUPA will look for any related development opportunities, both within Mumbai, and across the rest of India. The Piramal group was selected as BUPA's partner after a long protracted search that took six months.
