Bullish on its pan-India expansion, home diagnostic service provider Healthians on Friday announced a major expansion in southern cities including Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai with an investment of Rs 50 crore.
The investment will be made within the next three years and Healthians also plans to add 12 pathology labs within the next 18-24 months, the company said in a statement.
"We have witnessed substantial growth in the past year in north India, and have perfected our model in multiple cities before heading for pan-India expansion. Based on our market survey and customer demand, South India is our first move for a mega expansion planned in 2019," said Deepak Sahni, Founder and CEO of Healthians.
"Unlike traditional businesses, we don't want to dominate just one single market and clearly see the demand from all parts of India," he added.
The company also announced the launch of its operations in Bengaluru along with the opening of a fully automated and managed pathology lab.
As compared to the existing services available here, residents will not just get free home sample collection and free doctor and diet consultation but for the first time will also get free blood pressure and blood sugar check for family members at home.
Healthians currently has active operations in 21 cities including Delhi-NCR, Lucknow, Kanpur, Agra, Dehradun, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Sonipat, Meerut, Panipat, Ambala, Karnal, Mohali and Panchkula.
