Introducing Medcity
  Chairman's message
  Aspiring for the sky is a way of life

Aspiring for the Sky is challenging ….but accomplishing that is satisfying. For us, at DM Healthcare, it has been a lifelong ambition to conceive and deliver an iconic home-grown healthcare destination of international standard to the world. Years of conceptualization, planning and now execution, has taken us closer to the reality of establishing our dream project…The Aster Medcity at Kochi. We hope to admit the first patient by mid 2013.

India is on the cusp of a powerful upward economic spiral. The healthcare expertise and delivery in the country is growing exponentially, with cutting edge technology being provided by highly skilled professionals. Internationally, Indian Healthcare professionals are accepted and respected for many decades. … Many of them wish to provide their highly honed skills closer to home, if proper platforms to practice their skills are available. A synergy of expertise of national and international professionals coupled with Indian hospitality and attractive differential in tariff can readily make such an institution a destination for international patients.

We at DM Healthcare believe in one simple philosophy... provide quality healthcare at an affordable cost with care and compassion. We strongly believe that profits should be a by-product and not a goal in healthcare.

Aster Medcity, with its Concept of Unity in Diversity, with a General Hospital as its anchor and Centres of Excellence in various specialties as spokes, is poised to deliver our aspirations with a unique blend of care and compassion… fulfilment of an aspiration to create a world class healthcare destination with top end infrastructure, cutting edge technology and excellent knowledge partnership where care is delivered with compassion.

We look forward to defining a new era in the healthcare landscape across the world, through the Aster Medcity at Kochi.
