Home healthcare service provider HealthCare at Home (HCAH) plans to hire around 4,500 employees by the end of next fiscal as it undertakes aggressive expansion plans across the country.

The company backed by promoters of Dabur, the Burman family, and founders of HealthCare at Home (HAH) UK, has around 1,300 employees at present.

“We plan to hire around 4,500 employees by the end of next financial year, taking our total strength to up to 6,000,” HealthCare at Home (HCAH) Co-Founder and CEO Vivek Srivastava told PTI.

This is required to expand the company’s presence in more cities and expand its service portfolio, he added.

Highlighting the difference between HCAH and others in the same space, Srivastava said: “All our people are on our rolls and we spend and a lot of time, effort and money on training and up-skilling these people.”

Going forward, the company that currently has presence in over 40 cities across the country is also looking at entering new cities and regions. “Very soon we will be entering Chennai and Pune. The focus is to expand presence in southern and central India,” Srivastava said.

The company provides services in two verticals, he added. “Some of the key services offered by HCAH include setting up ICUs at home, providing cancer treatment at home, home nursing and physiotherapy along with other clinical procedures at home,” he said.

The other vertical is providing integrated pharma services. HCAH works with pharma companies to manage their patient journey right from awareness of therapy to compliance management, Srivastava said.
