Aster entered Karnataka with its first hospital in Hebbal few years back and was promptly recognized as a trusted name. This prompted us to come up with the 2nd hospital so quickly at J P Nagar, which happens to be our 25th hospital worldwide. We now have 13 hospitals in 5 Southern States of India with 4573 beds in India and 1100 in GCC. This new hospital will offer state-of-the-art quaternary care services to the people of Bangalore as well as those coming to the city as part of Medical Value Travel from outside the country. We are thankful to the people of the Karnataka and the medical fraternity of the state for the confidence showered on us.”
