India's leading healthcare screening brand, Healthians today announced its plans to invest substantially in expanding operations pan India, to serve over 300 cities by 2021. Healthians is currently operating in over 35 cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Hyderabad. So far, the start-up has provided health check-ups to more than 7,50,000 households and is now on its way to serve 50 cities in the next two months and 300 cities by 2021. The company is also planning to add 200 labs and 3000 on field phlebotomists by 2021.
India has more than 1 Lakh+ labs, out of which more than 90,000 are operating at only 20-25% of their current capacity. Healthians is planning to improve these local path labs by building a centralised technology & standardisation team to acquire labs or manage labs on its own. By acquiring local path labs, and bringing them up to their quality and standard, the company can save the investment of building new labs. The saved investment will help in establishing more labs.
Speaking on their future plans, Deepak Sahni, CEO & Founder of Healthians, said, “We have observed unprecedented growth within the healthcare sector and are ambitious to serve as a national brand within the next few months. By 2022, Healthians will be a household name in 300 cities in the country, serving the masses with preventive and curative healthcare screening. The optimism is gained from the success we have achieved in the last two years, and our growing user base, they are the evangelists that are helping us make India a healthier nation.”
