SuVitas, a Hyderabad based transition care start-up was recently acquired by Delhi NCR based healthcare outside hospital pioneer HCAH backed by the Burmans of Dabur Group and Quadria Capital. HCAH plans to invest around Rs. 200-300 crores in HCAH SuVitas to expand its capacity across India (Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune & Ahmedabad) by adding 1500 beds in 30 transition care centers in over next 2-3 years.
Commenting on the expansion, Vivek Srivastava, Co-Founder & CEO – HCAH said, ‘’We are very happy to announce that we are committed to increase transition care bed capacity from 100 beds to 1500 beds by investing 200-300 crores in 30 transition care centers in next 2-3 years. We will further strengthen our presence in all major metro cities.”
Antra Bhargava, CEO, HCAH SuVitas said, “The concept of Transition Care facilities is not new. However, unlike in the United States where there are highly niche centres dedicated to this space, we have created an India specific solution. Our typical 50 bed centres have 24/7 doctors onsite that craft personalised care plans for any type of specialisation in an infection-safe setting. These patients are cared for in a proprietary technology-enabled environment that fosters collaboration between skilled nurses and expert rehab professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational, respiratory and speech swallow therapists, dietitians and clinical psychologists. HCAH SuVitas through expansion would be able to help many more patients in need and ease the burden on tertiary care hospitals.”
