Among the main hurdles in setting up hospitals in developing economies, such as Indonesia, is the shortage of doctors, the Chennai -headquartered group said.
“As far as Indonesia is concerned, once the government-to-government talks finish, hopefully we may be going there for starting our hospital,” Reddy told reporters here.
The group already runs hospitals in Dhaka and Mauritius and a super speciality hospital will be commencing operations in Tanzania in four months.
Apollo Hospitals will launch 10 hospitals with a capacity of 2,500 beds by the end of this fiscal with an outlay of Rs 1,500 crore, he said. The group now has over 50 hospitals with more than 8,500 beds.
