Dr. K. M. Harikrishnan

GM Operations and General Consultant, Nova Medical Centers Oman

A few years back a group of entrepreneurs, doctors, and businessmen had a brainstorming session on increasing and improving the throughput of surgical cases in India. The idea of Nova short-stay surgical centers was born out of this discussion. Until recently, short-stay surgery has not been given much attention except in the UK, where all services are provided free, and where the potential cost benefits of short-stay hospital facilities are particularly attractive to the Exchequer.

Chairman, ATLAS

I think expatriates make up 75% of our business, with the rest being Omani. They are primarily Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and Sri Lankans. It is not that other countries are not represented, but these make up the majority of our clients. I am also happy to tell you that Omanis come, and they genuinely enjoy their time here.
