Metropolis Healthcare has announced a joint venture with Bramser Corporation. The joint venture, Metropolis Brasmer Lab Services Mauritius will introduce pathology services to the nation. To begin with Metropolis has one central laboratory with collection points across Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles & Reunion. The central laboratory is located on the premises of the Apollo Bramwell Hospital and pathology services will be available to patients in the hospital as well as the citizens of Mauritius.
Plans are to set up 25 collection points across these locations in the coming year. Metropolis Healthcare will be opening five collection points with immediate effect at Port Louis, Curepipe, Moka, Quatre Bornes & Rose-Hill, with two more laboratories coming up across Central Flacq & Black River in the next three months. Investments planned around the joint venture are in the region of 50 million Mauritian Rupees.
Speaking at the occasion of the joint venture, Ameera Shah, MD & CEO said, “As India’s most respected chain of pathology laboratories, we are looking at 1000 tests being performed locally in Mauritius. We also have the advantage of offering 4500 tests with the best turnaround time. We would be the first and foremost in the Mauritius diagnostic industry to offer the widest test menu combined with the highest standard of quality at an affordable rate.”

Our understanding of the market, combined with Metropolis’ expertise in global healthcare diagnostics, we look to bridge that gap while ensuring affordability and quality.”
