One of the largest healthcare companies in the UAE, Aster DM Healthcare is set to expand its service offering by listing a 10% stake on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
At present, the company houses acute facilities, with 18 hospitals and 96 clinics, diagnostics centres and over 200 pharmacies, with over 19,000 employees under its umbrella.
The company will place its stake on the BSE by March 2018 and will enable it to reduce its debts and also enable business growth across India.

Aster Healthcare has already hired around 30 people with disabilities in different places and the number will be increased up to 100 this year to offer jobs in the GCC and India as part of the 30-year celebrations,” Dr Moopen added.
