You might have seen hospitals are mushrooming in the city becoming a safe heaven for patients from all around the city and central part of the state. There are always reports that the hospitals are fleecing the patients when they are in a state of emotional distress by doing some tests that are not required or doing some tests at a very high frequency. There is always two sides of the coin and can always be justified from both point of views. But Trichy is blessed with lots of quality hospitals some serving for a very long time where hospitals and practices are being run by families ( Like KP Krishnan to KP Pichumani) and some hospitals run by business groups and public companies eyeing profits in the process. One such public hospital is SeaHorse hospital opposite Vestry School in Trichy. It is one of the famous hospitals nestled in a quiet residential area. It made a net loss of Rs. 70 crores on a turnover of 98 Crores.
Vasan Healthcare Group of Trichy, a rs. 250 Crore company is poised to take over Seahorse Hosiptal near Central Busstand. The offer price is whispered to be Rs. 15 to Rs 20 Crores. The Vasan Group is the same group which has a network of Pharmacies in Trichy by the name of Vasan Pharmacy and Vaan Eye care center.
