The Radiant Life Care emergency service, which is supported by KKR, is interviewing Jaslok Hospital's confidant, who will take over its operations and management, the Mint says.
"Radiant leads leading talks on an operational and managerial alliance with Jaslok Hospital on the routes of his current arrangements with the BLK Super Specialty Hospital in Delhi and the hospital in Mumbai, Nanavati," the source said.
Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai is allegedly the oldest tertiary care hospital in the country. Set in 1973, it has 364 beds, of which 75 beds are in intensive care units.
According to the report, the Hinduja Group and the Malaysian IHH Healthcare are also rescued to gain Jaslov's operations and management.
"The talks are going well, even if there are other suitors, such as Hinduja and IHH health care in Malaysia," the source said in a document, adding that administrators are interested in getting a professional operator to run the hospital.
Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.
Radiant previously made an unsuccessful bid for Fortis Healthcare.
The KKR Company, which develops, manages and operates medical facilities, has an operational and managerial alliance with the BLK Super Specialty Hospital and Dr. BalaBhai Nanavati in Mumbai.
In 2017, KKR acquired 49 percent of Radiant's shares for $ 200 million. Radiant, founded in 2000, got into the healthcare sector with the reconstruction of the BLK Super Specialty Hospital in New Delhi for Rs 350 crore. She worked with the B & B hospital in Nepal to help establish surgical and medical oncology programs.
Radiant, who joined Nanavati Hospital in a profit-sharing agreement in 2014, is responsible for the development of Nanavati Hospital in a super special hospital and adds 250 beds to the existing capacity of 360 beds.
"This problem is entirely speculative," said Abhay Soi, Chairman and CEO of Radiant.
IHH recently gained a 31 percent stake in Fortis Healthcare and introduced 4000 crore into the company. A Malaysian-based entity, which runs nine hospitals in the country, is trying to expand its operations in India.
In the six months ending 30 June, 23 health and risk capital transactions in the Indian health sector were made at $ 679 million, representing $ 402 million in the same period a year ago.
This is a 200 million dollar True Earth investment at Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), and an $ 50 million investment in Asia Healthcare Holdings by the Swiss state-owned investor Temasek Sheares Healthcare.
