Niira Radia to bring a revolution into the Hospital Industry

Niira Radia then ventured into the healthcare business through Nayati Healthcare, whose first hospital was inaugurated in Mathura by Ratan Tata in February 2016. It is a 351-bed multi super specialty hospital

 

Niira Radia, once an influential corporate lobbyist and public relations professional, decided to exit the communications consultancy business in October 2011 after her name emerged in the 2G spectrum scandal. To her credit she has always helped many organisations and corporates like TATA GROUP in closing lucrative deals and matters related to retrenchment and merger and acquisition too. And now Niira Radia is back doing what she always loved: strategic advice.

 

Absolutely, there is no doubt on her credentials in helping and advising Ratan Tata in the crisis of Cyrus Mistry, who was earlier sacked as the chairman of Tata Sons (by the Tatas) over a host of management issues. There are talks within Tata Sons to let Radia handle some of the communication strategies of Tata Tea, India’s largest packaged tea brand with a dominating market share. Radia was also instrumental in shifting the Nano plant from West Bengal to Gujarat after Mamata Bannerjee-led protests in Singur in 2008.

 

Niira Radia then ventured into the healthcare business through Nayati Healthcare, whose first hospital was inaugurated in Mathura by Ratan Tata in February 2016. It is a 351-bed multi super specialty hospital. During the inauguration, Tata told reporters, “It is heartening to see a full-fledged specialty hospital being established in Mathura with considerable personal sacrifice, driven by passion and a genuine desire to serve the community.”

 

Radia while expressing her views, told journalists that she had no regrets about her past and her foray in the corporate world was “a great learning”. She has her plans to set up more hospitals in northern states like Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir.

 

Nayati presently operates Nayati Medicity in Mathura and Nayati Hospital in Agra and has plans to expand further to areas like Amritsar, Varanasi, Lucknow and Nagpur, sources said.

 

By continuing her efforts to become the tycoon in the hospital industry, she is now going to promote a new private hospitalthat is likely to become functional in the city early next year. The hospital is built by OSL group, a company co-owned by a renowned businessman from Odisha. This deal has happened recently outside India for approximately 250 cr. plus approx. The twist to the story however is when both the party is from India, why did they had seal the deal outside India.The exact deal amount is not known.

 

The new 600-bed facility that is to be named PrimaMed, will come up on Golf Course Road and will mark the entry of Nayati Healthcare in NCR. Nayati is partnering with OSL healthcare, headed by Vimhas founder Dr Rajiv Sharma, to run PrimaMed.As per the sources, Nayati acquired majority stakes (51%) in PrimaMed hospital this week as well as PrimaMed Vimhans, which is located near Ashram in Delhi. The construction of PrimaMed Gurugram will be completed early next year, an official spokesperson said.
