Noida-based healthcare startup FirstCure Health (‘FirstCure’), to make advanced surgical care available to all by providing the right doctors, the right advice, the right treatment at the right prices, recently launched a healthcare service network. With mentorship from his family of senior reputed doctors and entrepreneurs, founded by Nikhil Bansal (a Chartered Accountant and alumnus of Harvard Business School), the startup aims to make modern surgical care safe, seamless, accessible and affordable.
The startup recognizes the problems of unavailability of modern treatments everywhere, being available but at high prices, patients not aware of whom to consult to get the right treatment and stress of the process involved in arranging a treatment. For addressing these issues, Firstcurehealth.com aims to make the state-of-the-art modern and safe surgical care, typically available in super-specialty hospitals of big cities, accessible, affordable, standardized and integrated.
In keeping with the need to solve above problems, FirstCure has built a strong network of 40+ clinics and leading hospitals in six cities – New Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Bhopal, connecting patients and their families with modern and reasonably priced treatments for 50+ ailments by its team of 50 + specialized doctors. Going forward it plans to expand its presence in many more towns and cities in India.
“The healthcare industry in India today is very fragmented, unstructured, non-standardized and in most cases inaccessible to a very significant proportion of the Indian population. By trying to solve these problems and by providing the right treatment by the right doctors at the right price at a hospital near the user, we want to be a healthcare provider of choice which people from India and outside India trust for high-quality safe surgeries at the right prices.” says founder Nikhil Bansal.
