Corporate hospitals in Hyderabad are losing the customers.Today while going through the newspaper I found this news in the paper. Hyderabad is being treated as the medical hub. Many people from other States also come here for getting the treatment. Always all corporate hospitals are always fully occupied. But recently the occupancy rate in these hospitals has come down by 30% to 40%.
The important reason for this is that the government hospitals in Telangana are getting updated and more patients are preferring these government hospitals than corporate hospitals. A welcome change.
Another point is patients from AP are not coming to this place for treatment. Six corporate hospitals are operating in AP and so those people are going there. Another important factor is that AP government is not extending the NTR medical treatment scheme to the patients who come to Hyderabad for small diseases which can be treated in the state itself. The inpatient and outpatient percentages in all hospitals in AP including that of government hospitals increased. So shortly we may see that the inflow to Hyderabad may come down.
