Business mogul Sanjay Dalmia targets medical tourists with a dose of Ayurveda

The medical division of Sanjay Dalmia Group, Dalmia Medicare has forayed into the field of medical tourism. The group is aiming to encourage and promote the use of Ayurveda around the world along with all other streams of medical treatment.

India has emerged as one of the most favorable destinations for medical tourism over the last few years.  The provision of medical tourism in India has saved countless lives, while patient care continues to improve with time owing to the advancement in the country’s medical technology.

Dalmia Medicare promises to offer every possible medical treatment consultation not only to the domestic patients, but also to the international ones. Through its company Dalmia Healthcare, the group is providing the best Ayurvedic and allopathic medicines to consumers at subsidized prices. With a portfolio of 83 quality hospitals and nursing homes, as well as 496 doctors and 23 diagnostic centers, Dalmia Medicare is still growing.

“We want India to become the number one country in healthcare products and services. To fulfill this dream, I would like to encourage our youth and people in the related industry, such as tourism to join me in this mission. We are looking forward to creating a strategic alliance with a trusted partner who can facilitate in bringing patients from Iran, Afghanistan, Middle East, Europe including Spain, Mauritius, the US and other countries,” Dalmia Group Chairman Sanjay Dalmia said.

He continued, “My healthcare endeavors are an extension of my commitment towards my nation. Our healthcare offerings are not limited to surgery and allopathy; we are also offering treatment through Ayurveda. I believe that it is time to show the world the remedial powers of Ayurveda.”

“Ayurveda and Siddha medicine systems are based on ancient Indian medicine science, and continue to amaze the world with their fantastic curative powers. Twinned with Yoga, Ayurveda has reinforced a worldwide belief in the age-old Indian wisdom and strengthened its image,” Dalmia added.

A known business magnate, Sanjay Dalmia believes Ayurveda to be one of the most distinctive and effective medical approaches to health and disease. According to him, this ancient science of medicine holds a pragmatic solution to almost all health disorders and ailments. “Ayurvedic therapies help to restore the organic functions of the body. Harmonizing the mind, body, and spirit, they also promote health and well-being,” he says.

The low cost of treatment in comparison to the other countries who offer medical care of the same standard is one of the major reasons for India’s growing medical tourism industry. According to several surveys, a majority of the people who travel to Asia for medical treatment, end up in India because it’s cost-effective.

Talking about the rapid growth in the scope of medical tourism in our country, Sanjay Dalmia said, “Medical tourism is a growing sector in India, we see huge potential in this sector. In October 2015, India’s medical tourism sector was estimated to be worth $3 billion. It is projected to grow to $7-8 billion by 2020. We believe not just our country, but the entire world can benefit from the growth of this sector. Healthcare is a necessity for an individual. It is a part of the basic infrastructure we require to sustain and develop a healthy society and nation.”

With business mogul Sanjay Dalmia’s venturing into medical tourism, the healthcare sector can definitely expect some boost in the years to come. The horizon of India’s medical segment has surely been widened.
