“By using technology to deliver differentiated experiences and outcomes, Pristyn Care has built the leading consumer-centric surgery provider in India. The market opportunity is huge, and we couldn't be more excited to partner with Harsimarbir (Harsh) and his team,” remarked Scott Shleifer, partner, Tiger Global Management.
Under its patient-first approach for all its surgery patients, Pristyn Care provides end-to-end patient-first support services such as diagnostics support, complete health-insurance claim processing, hospital admission paperwork from the comfort of home, cab pick-up and drop for surgery, medicine delivery at home, and free post-surgery consultation, the company shared.
“With this round, we will invest in newer medical technologies to provide world-class treatment and experience to our surgery patients. We will also increase treatments for newer disease lines and get more people to access to top-quality medical care across the nation. Our more than 300 Super Specialist Surgeons come with a wealth of experience having operated on the most complex cases. Right from metro to smaller towns we are committed to hiring only the best Doctors to come to join Pristyn Care,” added Dr. Vaibhav Kapoor, co-founder, Pristyn Care.
