Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - NATION - Press Trust of India

MATHURA: For­mer corporate lob­by­ist Ni­ira Ra­dia has ven­tured into the health­care busi­ness through a new en­tity, Nay­ati Health­care. The first hospi­tal was in­au­gu­rated by Ratan Tata in Mathura on Sun­day.

Nay­ati Health­care plans to open a hospi­tal in Am­rit­sar next, while the Mathura fa­cil­ity would be a hub for can­cer treat­ment in the re­gion, Ra­dia said.

Af­ter in­au­gu­rat­ing the 351bed multi su­per-spe­cialty hospi­tal, Tata said: “It is heart­en­ing to see a full-fledged spe­cialty hospi­tal be­ing es­tab­lished in Mathura with con­sid­er­able per­sonal sac­ri­fice, driven by pas­sion and a gen­uine de­sire to serve the com­mu­nity.”

The hospi­tal would pro­vide “much-needed med­i­cal help and health­care fa­cil­i­ties for the peo­ple of the re­gion,” Tata Sons chair­man emer­i­tus Ratan Tata said.

The hospi­tal will be a cen­tre of ex­cel­lence for the whole of north India, Ra­dia said. She added that the ven­tures are be­ing fi­nanced by bank loans. How­ever, spe­cific de­tails were not dis­closed.

Ra­dia, once an in­flu­en­tial corporate lob­by­ist, landed in con­tro­versy few years back when au­dio record­ings of al­leged con­ver­sa­tions be­tween her and prom­i­nent politi­cians, busi­ness­men and me­dia per­sons were leaked.

Sub­se­quently, she wound up her PR busi­ness that com­prised, among other en­ti­ties, Vaish­navi Corporate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, which counted Tata Group and Unitech among its clients, and of Neu­com Con­sult­ing, which man­aged the ac­count of Re­liance In­dus­tries Ltd (RIL).
