The new hospital with Indian experience and expertise would create a new health ecosystem for Uzbeks and neighbouring countries
Uzbekistan is all set to become a medical hub for CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries with support from a leading Indian healthcare provider company Aakash Healthcare LLC which has now opened and operationalised Aakash Multispecialty Hospital.
Aakash Healthcare LLC, an associate company of Aakash Healthcare, has acquired Tashkent’s Asia Med Centre to transform Uzbekistan’s hospital with an Indian ethos combining class and compassion in care. With support from the Uzbekistan government, Aakash Healthcare plans to transform Uzbekistan’s healthcare systems with investment to the tune of $10 million in the next few years.
The inflow of Uzbek and other CIS patients to India and especially to New Delhi is increasing exponentially. About 8,000 patients come to New Delhi every year for medical treatments and the approximate market size is the tune of $30 million.
Uzbeks majorly have liver issues and nearly a large portion of the population suffers from Hepatitis B and C. The majority of patients come to India for complex surgeries like liver transplants, cancer surgeries, and neuro and orthopedic procedures. The major focus of Aakash Healthcare LLC would be on Mother & Child, Orthopaedic, Liver, and Kidney diseases among others.
The Tashkent Aakash Hospital has 50 beds and multiple speciality departments.
