The hurried footsteps of hospital managers have now become white noise at Radiant Life Care’s BLK hospital. Senior managers with Max Healthcare’s chain of 14 hospitals have been thronging these corridors for the last few months. They’ve been finalising the details of Radiant, with two hospitals—650 beds at BLK hospital in Delhi and 350 beds at Nanavati hospital in Mumbai—taking over Max’s 14.
Radiant acquired 49.7% of Max, one of the largest hospital chains in the country, in June. It may not be a majority stake, but the managers know that a foundational shift in Max’s management is afoot.
