Apex Kidney Care (AKC), the social enterprise spearheaded by Dr Jatin Kothari has received a significant boost recently with Tata Capital Healthcare Fund II (TCHF II), the healthcare-focused private equity fund under Tata Capital Ltd., announcing that it has made an investment of $10 million in AKC.
AKC is India's second-largest dialysis chain and was founded by Dr Kothari and some of his fellow nephrologist-entrepreneurs. It is now India’s second largest dialysis chain and probably the largest dialysis service provider owned by nephrologists anywhere in the world. The enterprise, which operates in 180+ dialysis centres in 120 cities across nine states, plans to use the infusion of capital expand its dialysis services nationwide.
Currently, it is estimated that only about 11% of the nation's total annual demand for quality dialysis care is being met.
Vamesh Chovatia, Partner, Tata Capital Healthcare Fund II, “We’re excited to partner with Apex Kidney Care, a leader in the dialysis space in the country. At TCHF II, we take a holistic approach to investing capital and backing companies like AKC that address glaring gaps in healthcare. We look forward to working closely with AKC and making high-quality and cost- effective services available to nephrology patients. We believe India needs many more Apex kind of organisations to deliver dialysis services and effectively address the healthcare need gap in the industry.”
Says Jatin Kothari, Co-founder and Director, Apex Kidney Care, “Today is a milestone in the life story of Apex Kidney Care. The partnership with Tata Capital Healthcare Fund II will strengthen our commitment to revolutionise kidney care in India and underscores the value of our business model and our vision in delivering high quality dialysis services. It promises to open many new avenues to advance the business, and favourably touch the lives of thousands of patients fighting kidney disease.”
