Nova Medical Centers, India’s leading Ambulatory Surgery Group, today announced its expansion into the Middle East region. This venture will be a 51%-49% partnership between Nova and the OMZEST Group. Through this partnership, Nova and OMZEST will set up Ambulatory Surgery Centers in Dubai, Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh. Additionally, OMZEST will invest in Nova’s Indian operations and acquire a 10% equity stake.

OMZEST is one of the premier and most diversified groups in Sultanate of Oman with over 75 companies. The Group is led by its Chairman and Founder, H.E. Dr. Omar Zawawi, Special Advisor for External Liaison to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said. OMZEST’s business interests include Manufacturing, Construction & Contracting, Services, Trading & Agency representation, Training and Education.

This joint venture marks a significant milestone for Nova. Having pioneered the concept of stand-alone Ambulatory Surgery Centers in India, the Nova group is now ready to make its presence felt in the international healthcare arena. Nova’s partnership with OMZEST would also generate international career opportunities for doctors, clinical and non-clinical staff associated with Nova centers across India.

Mr. Suresh Soni, Chairman and CEO, Nova Medical Centers, described this tie-up as a momentous landmark in Nova’s journey to achieve a global footprint in the healthcare delivery space. “Nova’s unique operating model is designed for rapid scale. We have aggressive expansion plans both nationally and globally. Leading surgeons from Muscat have expressed great interest in our concept and are looking forward to working with us. We are also very glad that we have someone of the stature of OMZEST as a JV partner”, he said.

Mr. Rajiv Dhar, Executive Director - FInance, OMZEST, commented “We are delighted to be partnering with Nova. We have seen how Nova has, in a short span of time, gained acceptance across the healthcare industry amongst doctors, patients and insurance companies. We see tremendous potential for Ambulatory Surgery in general, and Nova’s business model in particular, both in India and the Middle East.”
