Matrix India invests in Meditrina

Matrix Partners India today announced that it has picked up a significant minority stake for INR 41 crores in Meditrina Hospitals, as the sole investor in the first institutional round of equity funding for the Company. Meditrina is a leading provider of cardiac care in South India. It currently operates four units focused on interventional cardiology in South and Central Kerala. Meditrina strives to provide high quality care with best in class infrastructure at an affordable cost in these locations. Meditrina started its operations three years back and in a short span of time, has built a strong brand under the leadership of Kerala's leading interventional Cardiologist Dr. N Prathap Kumar.

"Technology introduction in cardiac care in India has been on the rise since mid '90s. I have had the privilege to be at the forefront of cath lab introduction in Kerala. Though metros have moved ahead, Tier II India lags behind though the need is as acute there. My focus also has always been to build on the existing medical infrastructure, hence the idea of Specialty Inside Hospital (SIH). Meditrina was born by merging these two concepts. Though we now focus on interventional cardiology, we will soon venture into bypass and allied cardiac care with a world class Centre of Excellence in Kollam. We aim to keep our capital and operating costs low and pass the benefit to customers, most of whom are bread winners of their respective families. Partnership with Matrix will enable us to move fast in the growth phase and provide us thought leadership, given their strong background in Healthcare Services." said Dr. N Prathap Kumar, founder of Meditrina Hospitals Private Limited.

"It is our privilege to be associated with the team at Meditrina, especially Dr. N Prathap Kumar, and his vision to create quality cardiac care in tier II India. The Cardiac SIH model, which solves for capital efficiency and intensity, is a substantial business model innovation in a hitherto highly capital intensive, super specialist therapeutic area." said Asish Mohapatra, healthcare investments head, Matrix Partners India.

"Specialty healthcare services are an important franchise area for Matrix Partners India as they satisfy a growing demand for affordable and patient–centric care for Indian consumers and this is the 5th investment in this area." said Avnish Bajaj, co-Founder and Managing Director, Matrix Partners India.

Meditrina has a line of several eminent Cardiologists planning to join the team in the immediate future. In the next five years, Meditrina aims to grow pan India into a strong network of 20 SIHs supported by two strategically located centres of excellence. It is in the process of ramping up personnel both on clinical (Cardiologists) and non-clinical management to build the engine for this growth.

Grant Thornton India was the sole financial advisor to Meditrina Hospitals in this transaction.
