MBA in Hospital and Healthcare Management offered by IGNOU may be a good option for the author. Eligibility criteria is graduation and the minimum and maximum duration of the course are two years and three years respectively. The course is offered by Advanced Centre for Informatics and Innovative Learning (ACIIL) of IGNOU.
MBA in Hospital Management in online mode is offered by the Pondicherry University and many other institutes also. Some of the other institutes are Anna University, ICFAI University, Sikkim Manipal University and Bharathiar University etc. It is always better to complete a course compared to not doing it at all.

Since you are working it may not possible for you to complete a course in regular mode. So you want to complete MBA in health management through distance mode. It is a very good idea. There are number of universities which provides you to complete your higher degree through distance education.

Most of the distance education MBA are good enough if they are from reputed universities. As the content of the distance education needs to be checked before making any conclusion. I'd say download the syllabus or ask around for that specific university. And I am sure this way you can get the idea which is the better content if you choose the course.

MBA be it from regular or distance education are viewed with same weight. However you should understand that distance education is only good if you have supplementary knowledge of the field.

Since you are already in the job and as such it would not be possible for you to join a regular course of health management being covered in MBA syllabus. You may go ahead with your studies in health management in distance education mode but at the same time, you have to ensure the content and genuineness of the course since you would come across a number of Institutes providing you a MBA degree in the health management but chances are there that you would end up with a fake degree.
The best way would be to verify the status of the university providing such Courses of MBA. Even the Google - search can save your valuable time in tracing out the authenticity of the courses. However, I would recommend the following universities from where you can initiate your courses. Some of the recognised universities providing education in this line are as follow-
1) Indira Gandhi National Open University
2) Pondicherry University
3) Bhatathiar University
4) Osmania University
5) Annamalai University etc.
Of all the universities listed above, IGNOU seems to be an ideal university because of its rich content of the syllabus apart from their contact classes for addressing your problems related to your studies. Fee- structure, too, is economical but there is no compromise in the standard of the syllabus. Of late, there is a surge of popularity of this University.
