US Healthcare Firm To Open Senior Living Homes

US

 

Bengaluru: The US-based international healthcare provider Columbia Pacific Management would set up its first senior living community in this tech hub, an official said on Wednesday. “With expertise in planning and executing senior living projects across Asia, Canada and the US, we bring the legacy to India. We are positive our first community in the landscape will shape our presence, globally, Columbia founder Dan Baty said in a statement here.

The Seattle-headquartered Columbia serves 1,600 residential homes in nine communities across five cities in south India after it acquired Serene Retirement Homes in March 2017 for an unspecified amount.

The five cities where the retirement homes were built are Bengaluru in Karnataka, Chennai, Coimbatore and Kanchipuram in neighbouring Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. The 40-year-old healthcare firm develops and operates hospitals, clinics and senior housing across Asia with locations in China, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia and Vietnam. (IANS)
