CARE Hospitals (CARE), was founded in 1997 by a group of physicians, chaired by Dr. Soma Raju, who worked at Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), a public medical school in Hyderabad (India) for approximately ten years.
Annoyed by the bureaucratic systems followed at the public hospitals, these physicians decided to establish the CARE Hospitals and provide world class treatment. The first hospital was started as a 100 bedded facility offering cardiac care in Hyderabad. Today CARE Hospitals has grown to 1720 beds with 12 hospitals spread across India and is emerging as one of the leading healthcare providers in India. It is the fourth largest healthcare provider in India (CRIS-INFAC report, 2006) and is focused on providing quality care at an affordable price for the middle income group.
