Apollo Group of Hospitals would open its first clinic in Tanzania in East Africa within the next four months, its chairman Prathap C Reddy said here today.

“We will open the clinic in the next four months and later on our hospital will be opened there. It will be a 300 bed hospital,” Reddy told reporters here.

He said the Tanzanian government had already allotted the site for the hospital at the capital city of Dar Es Salam, where work would commence soon.

Apollo Group of Hospitals had signed a Joint Venture with the government of Tanzania in the healthcare industry in the presence of the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2011.

Expressing satisfaction over the quality of healthcare provided by Apollo, a Tanzanian diplomat said his country is happy to be associated with the Chennai—headquartered health care giant.

“Earlier, we had to rush our patients to U.K., U.S. and Europe for treatment, which was expensive. Our experience with Chennai’s Apollo has been wonderful and we would continue to send our people here with utmost trust,” Kheri O Goloka, Medical Attache of Tanzania High Commission in Delhi, said.
