Extending affordable and accessible primary and secondary healthcare in India
Vaatsalya operates a network of hospitals providing affordable, accessible and appropriate primary and secondary healthcare services to underserved communities in peri-urban and rural India. Vaatsaalya commits to scale its low-cost model to reach an additional 2 million people in underserved areas in five years. While 70% of India is living in semi-urban and rural areas, 80% of India's healthcare facilities are located in urban/metro areas. Vaatsalya is working to bridge this gap by building and managing hospitals/clinics in semi-urban and rural areas and bringing healthcare services where it is needed most. Vaatsalya is India's first hospital network focused on what are known as Tier II and Tier III towns. The company strives to provide affordable healthcare services to thousands of families across Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh through a network of hospitals in Hubli, Gadag, Hassan, Mysore, Shimoga, Tarikere, Chikmagalaur, Pandavapura, and Narasannapeta.
