NephroPlus set to expand services in West Asia and South East Asia

Setting sights on expanding their services in dialysis care, NephroPlus is foraying into international markets beginning with West Asia and South East Asia. The centre that is focused at redefining dialysis treatment, received an investment of $45 million (Rs 323 crore) from Investcorp, a Bahrainbased, global alternative asset management company.

With a footprint of a notable dialysis network in the country with over 200 centres, NephroPlus has been providing cost-effective treatments to over 14,000 dialysis patients. With the latest investment, the company is looking at expanding beyond their current presence in 20 states of India. The funds will further be for acquisitions and partnerships commencing with Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. A contract with Vietnam is currently underway and will be effective within the next twothree months.

The focus for the Indian market will continue to develop through the dialysis programmes currently on track at 180 hospitals and will subsequently continue through select acquisitions and expansion of centres; joint ventures and new operation and maintenance contracts will also be set in motion.
