Healthcare investment platform Asia Healthcare Holdings (AHH) has picked a controlling interest in the Asian Institute of Nephrology and Urology (AINU), a renal sciences hospital in India.
AHH will invest Rs6bn ($72.22m) in the institution. This investment, consisting of primary and secondary infusion, marks AHH’s expansion into a fourth speciality since its inception in 2017.
AINU chief consultant urologist and managing director Dr C Mallikarjun said: “Cancer of the prostate and bladder are becoming more common. Our team has performed over 1,000 robotic surgeries for urological cancers. We are making Robotic Urology surgery accessible to patients not just in urban India but also in tier 2 cities. Broadly we see a higher incidence of Uro-Oncology, Uro-Gynaecology and Paediatric Urology in the years ahead.”
AINU is a specialty hospital network focused on urology and nephrology care and has expertise in robotic urology surgery.
The acquisition is expected to help address the growing demand for urology and nephrology specialty healthcare in India, where there is a high incidence of urological disorders and chronic kidney disease due to factors like diabetes and hypertension.
AINU currently operates seven hospitals in multiple cities and has completed over 1,000 robotic urology surgeries.
