Max Healthcare to get ADB’s first ever private sector healthcare loan in India

New Delhi, December 17, 2002: Max Healthcare Institute Limited (Max Healthcare) today was sanctioned the first ever private sector loan of US $ 20 million by Asian Development Bank (ADB). This loan will support Max Healthcare’s vision of creating an integrated healthcare system in India.

“ADB recognizes that the private sector has an important role in meeting growing demand for healthcare services in India,” said B Anantharaman, Group Finance Director, Max India Limited. “This loan is an acknowledgment of our unique integrated healthcare model which is committed to the highest standards of excellence in patient care, scientific knowledge and medical education.”

Max Healthcare has already been given approval for a long-term Rs. 50 crore loan by Canara Bank. The financial closure of Max Healthcare’s Rs 420 crore project is expected to happen shortly.

This endeavor of ADB and Max Healthcare is aimed at alleviating a critical shortage of healthcare in NCR Delhi by expanding access to medical services and helping to raise healthcare quality to international standards. The medical network to be established will include up to 16 neighborhood primary clinics; five secondary medical centers, each serving a population of about 2.5 million; and two tertiary hospitals. Free in-patient facilities and outpatient consultations will be provided for the poor.

“This is a landmark project because it is ADB’s first local currency loan in India and also our first private sector infrastructure project in the country for six years. We support the use of local currency debt for projects that have revenues largely in local currency to avoid currency mismatches,” said Robert Bestani, Director General of ADB’s Private Sector Operations Department.
