Narayana Hrudayalaya's (NH) subsidiary - Health City Cayman Islands (HCCI), already running a hospital at East End, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, is establishing a facility at a new location in the Camana Bay Development area of Grand Cayman. This is in order to expand the scope of super specialty treatment options already offered and offer medical services closer to the city centre. As such, the new facility, planned on a 3-acre land plot, is expected to have 50 operating beds and will be completely commercialised within two years with a capex outlay of ~US$100 million that will be funded through a mix of internal accruals and debt.
Valuations & Outlook
The expansion at Camana Bay is likely to improve HCCI's reach to patients both - international and local, due to close proximity to the airport and several major residential complexes. Significant capital outlay notwithstanding, the new facility would complement the existing set up by focusing more on day care, short stay but niche categories of oncology care while the existing facility would continue to cater to tertiary and quaternary care. We expect the impact of this blended model to materialise from FY23 onwards. NH's experience in running hospital in this region could be handy for such types of ventures. We maintain our BUY recommendation and arrive at a target price of Rs. 545 (earlier Rs. 580) based on SOTP.
