We believe that the healthcare delivery market in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9%-11% between Fiscal Years 2024 and 2028 and reach INR 9.2-9.3 trillion in Fiscal Year 2028 driven by long-term structural factors, strong fundamentals, increasing affordability and potential of the Ayushman Bharat scheme. Given the geographical concentration of GPT Healthcare’s Hospitals in Eastern India, the company is well-placed to capitalize on the expected growth in the healthcare sector in Eastern India and adjoining states due to its early-mover advantage, strategically located hospitals, brand presence, deep understanding of the regional markets, and existing track record.

GPT Healthcare is one of the leading regional corporate healthcare companies in Eastern India, boasting a significant number of beds and hospitals. The company operates a chain of mid-sized full-service hospitals under the brand “ILS Hospitals,” delivering integrated healthcare services with a focus on secondary and tertiary care. As of June 30, 2023, GPT Healthcare operates four multispecialty hospitals, with a total capacity of 561 beds.

Each of its hospitals also provides integrated diagnostic services and pharmacies catering to its patients.
