Health in Pune

Over the last 20 or so years, Pune has transformed entirely. From being only the cultural capital of Maharashtra it has gone on to become not only one of the most sought after places to live in but also a front runner in the IT sector. With this kind of development also comes a large number of people immigrating to Pune, taking advantage of the yet unsaturated and developing market there. Health care, thus, is not only of the utmost importance but a certain degree efficiency and standard has also got to be met. Pune achieves both these comfortably. Catering to a number of expats and students from every corner of India, ‘The Oxford of the East’ is undergoing a major metamorphosis as far as health care is concerned. Major healthcare institutions like Apollo, Fortis and Wockhardt have set their eyes on this city slated for major expansions in a market whose maximum potential has not yet been tapped.
