AMRI Hospitals Ltd is the premier private healthcare provider of Eastern India, with three super specialty hospitals at Dhakuria, Mukundapur, and Salt Lake, in Kolkata, a state-of-the-art daycare centre on Southern Avenue in Kolkata, and another super specialty hospital at Bhubaneswar, Odisha. The Group takes care of around 3.5 lakh patients annually, conducting more than 15,000 successful surgeries, with a roster of more than 5,000 healthcare professionals. An impressive roster of more than 600 doctors and a well-trained force of nursing staff work tirelessly across more than 1,000 beds across its four hospitals, backed by advanced technologies and latest equipment to treat people and save lives. With major changes and developments on its plate, the AMRI Group is headed towards a path of steady growth. AMRI Hospitals is all set to add around 700 beds in the near future.
AMRI Hospitals brings to the table a class of its own, making the healthcare group a major player in keeping Eastern India ahead of the curve. The Group treats more than 3.5 lakh people every year and conducts around 15,000 surgeries annually, providing value-for-money services, backed by advanced equipment and latest technologies. The hallmark of AMRI Hospitals is a committed team of doctors and caregivers, who take up the challenge of treating the most complicated cases, besides stepping up to handle Emergency and Critical Care with dedication, expertise and compassion. Over the last three decades, the healthcare Group has made immense contributions to the lives of people, not just from Kolkata and the rest of Eastern India, but also from other parts of South Asia and the world.
In the early 1990s, the Government of West Bengal was looking for a private operator to take charge of Niramoy, a state-owned polyclinic at Dhakuria. Accordingly, the rights of management were handed over to a city-based private player. Soon after, the Emami Group was invited on board and the Advanced Medicare & Research Institute Ltd., a super specialty hospital, came into being, with the express purpose of offering quality healthcare.
In 2009, the hospital’s name was officially changed to AMRI Hospitals Limited and within a short period, the Emami Group took control of the whole private healthcare group. The most visible value the tag of ‘Emami’ brought to the table is a brand of passionate entrepreneurship and over time the Group leveraged its indomitable spirit to extend the benefits of quality health care to millions across the region.
With growing awareness among the citizenry about modern medicine, a greater need for superior healthcare services emerged in Eastern India. The Emami Group used its drive for inclusive growth and acumen for business innovation to expand across Eastern and North Eastern India, entering new specialty segments and attracting doctors, who while hailing from India, came with global exposure and international standard skills.
As the AMRI Hospitals emerged a premier healthcare service provider, the growth was not just about doing things better than the others; it was about introducing a transformative experience. For the first time in Eastern India, the Group brought to the operating table latest technologies, advanced equipment, high-class facilities, and the competence to synergize all these elements. The growth of AMRI Hospitals has become historically significant in the region, as it paved the path for private healthcare with a corporate approach.
