Mumbai, December 04, 2017: Metropolis Healthcare Ltd, India’s leading pathology chain launched its 10th state-of-the-art laboratory in Mumbai, spanning over an expanse of 1500 sq. feet. This is in addition to the existing 9 Satellite laboratories already in operation today in Mumbai. This new diagnostic outlet will provide support to Vile Parle, Khar, Juhu, and Santacruz areas in the western suburb. It will also provide a comprehensive test menu ranging from routine to specialised medical examination with a quick turnaround time of four to five hours for automated tests. In addition, Metropolis will offer the much sought-after lab-at-home service.
One of the first laboratories in Mumbai to have been accredited by NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories) & CAP (College of American Pathologists), Metropolis Healthcare has played a pivotal role in changing the diagnostic and pathology landscape in the city, India and globally.
“The Metropolis story started in Mumbai. From launching specialized Endocrine Pathology in India to starting HIV testing in the country in 1986-’87 and bringing new diagnostics technology like molecular biotechnology to the subcontinent, Metropolis has been at the forefront of several ‘firsts’ for patients in India. We have earned the trust of Mumbaikars and that has only been possible through our commitment to quality, accuracy and the empathy that we bring to the table” said Dr Sushil Shah, Founder and Chairman, Metropolis Healthcare Ltd.
Mr. Vijender Singh, Chief Executive Officer says, “We have successfully completed 35 years of operations in Mumbai. We have been growing aggressively in the last one year and we will continue to add more centers across India in the next two years. In Mumbai, We currently operate 10 labs and about 500 centers in this city. Across India, we have about 150 labs and more than 1500 collection centers. With the launch of the laboratory in Juhu, residents in the vicinity will have easy access to the center. Meeting the customer needs and providing them with accurate reports at the earliest will save our customer’s time.”
