Our total capital commitment towards this project is Rs 75 crores." he adds.
"This acquisition is in line with Moolchand Healthcare’s Rs 500 crore expansion plan announced earlier in this current financial year and enables Moolchand to expand its footprint to cover Western Uttar Pradesh. We are aggressively seeking additional acquisition opportunities as we intend to assemble a portfolio of 5-10 hospitals over the next few years." says Mr. Shravan Talwar, Managing Director, Moolchand Healthcare.
