What is the specialty of the project?

Aster Medcity is not a regular hospital or multi-specialty tertiary hospital project. Its a well planned mega campus, highlighting the objectives of ASSOCHAM (Association of Chamber of Commerce of India) for setting up planned medical cities in India, as part of making the country the hub of Medical tourism.

The concept revolves around establishing key Center of Excellence (COEs) in multiple areas of specialties which acts itself as research hub along with treatments. The Aster Medcity will have 9 COEs as Phase 1, each autonomous units with key co-operation and support leading operational partners across the world.

The Aster Medcity will have 9 COEs as Phase 1


Aster Childrens’ Hospital
Aster Cancer Hospital
Aster Heart Hospital
Aster Institute for Bone and Spine
Aster Institute for Neurology
Aster Institute for Gastroenterology and Herpetology
Aster Institute for Nephrology & Urology
Aster Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery
Aster Aesthetic Centre



Out of this, 6 are major COE, while 3 are minor COEs.

MedCity is trying to involve reputed institutions in the country and abroad for intellectual and operational partnership in the overall project or in the individual centres of excellence. This will help to benchmark against the best and adopt their protocols and procedures.

MedCity shall involve actively in Post Graduate Teaching and Training programs as well as in Clinical Trials and Research to usher in COEs.

Apart from this, a Multi-specialty General Hospital and Clinical Support Center will be there for regular and secondary treatments. The Clinical Support Center will have following sub-units
  • Emergency Centre
  • Critical Care Unit
  • Operation Suite
  • Diagnostic Centre
  • Day Care Centre
  • Health Check Up Centre

Thanks MI for bringing up the thread with complete details.

The Construction has started and AFAIK, 1 floor is complete. Phase I comprising of 540 bed hospital, to the tune of Rs 500 Crore will roll out by Sep 2012, if things go as planned

That's less than 1 year from now

Is it 500 crore or 1500 crore... I have conflicting reports... Do you have any idea? I don't think, you can build all these as Phase 1 with just 500 crore.... Or may be just the hospital complex alone.....

AFAIK, Phase I is a 540 bed hospital alone worth Rs 500 Crore.

DM has various centers catering to all class of people. No idea, whom they target to this project. Infact, this is focused on Medical Tourism, still it has to cater common folks so as to stay there.

That is perfectly alright. Let us treat it like the other hospitality projects. Does the poor (or the middle class) ever use the five star facilities?

Middle Class, now a days, might extend their budget if there are priorities. For e.g: My friend required a surgery, which costed Rs 50K, and there was some new method in which he will be fine in 3 days, that cost Rs 1 lac, We went for the latter so that he can leave the hospital 2 weeks earlier!
