About Fortis Healthcare

History 

Fortis Healthcare Limited (FHL), a leading healthcare provider in India, operates 27 hospitals, approximately 4500 beds, and over 426 diagnostic centres as of March 31, 2023. With a presence in Dubai, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka, the company offers comprehensive healthcare services ranging from clinics to advanced care facilities, specialising in cardiac care, orthopaedics, neurosciences, oncology, renal care, gastroenterology, and maternal and child health. FHL is known for its modern facilities and the use of advanced technology in patient care. Founded on February 28, 1996, Fortis Healthcare began operations in 2001 with the Fortis Heart Institute and Multi-Speciality Hospital in Mohali. Over the years, the company has expanded through acquisitions and partnerships. This includes acquiring a 90% stake in Escorts Heart Institute & Research Centre Ltd in 2005, which operates several hospitals in North India, and acquiring Hiranandani Healthcare Pvt Ltd in 2007 to develop a super-speciality hospital in Navi Mumbai. In 2007-08, Fortis Healthcare went public with its IPO of ₹496.76 crore and acquired stakes in Malar Hospitals Ltd. The company also expanded internationally, establishing Fortis Healthcare International Limited as a subsidiary and acquiring a stake in Mauritius's largest private hospital, Clinique Darne. Fortis continued to grow through acquisitions, including the takeover of 10 hospitals from Wockhardt Hospitals Ltd in 2009. In 2010, the company entered into an agreement with TPG Capital to acquire a stake in Parkway Holdings Ltd, a leading healthcare provider in Asia. Fortis Healthcare has focused on consolidating its presence in India in the last decade. It divested international assets, including its Singapore operations, and increased its stake in SRL Limited. The company also restructured, including a demerger of its diagnostics business and a sale of a stake in SRL to Manipal Hospitals as of March 2018. On September 22, 2022, the Singh brothers, Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, former promoters of Fortis Healthcare, were sentenced to six months in jail by the Supreme Court of India. This was in connection with a contempt case filed by Daiichi Sankyo over a ₹3,600 crore arbitration award. Fortis has continued to expand and modernise its facilities, adding new beds and advanced medical technologies. As of 2023, the company has strengthened its major medical programs, launched new clinics, and introduced advanced medical technologies in various specialities.
