Private hospitals in Nepal compete on service and the reputation of doctors, and Green City Hospital claims to offer both. Only founded two years ago, the Green City Hospital has already made new plans for the future. The hospital’s proposition is that it provides state-of-the-art healthcare for an affordable price. It offers beds to 100 patients, but needs to expand to 300 beds in order to become a teaching hospital. For this, the hospital needs an investment.
Two days before its two-years anniversary, we visited Green City Hospital. We took a glimpse of all departments, from the intensive care to its brand new obstetrics department. The next day, the chairman and managing director of the private hospital showed us their financials: the hospital is almost at its break-even point. Together we discussed where they would use the investment for, concluding that the acquisition of the building is their first priority. As soon as they own the building, they can start reconstructing and expanding it.
