IFC Public-Private Partnership Stories. India: Andhra Pradesh Radiology

IFC assisted the government of Andhra Pradesh in structuring a novel public-private partnership (PPP) model for upgrading radiology services at four teaching hospitals attached to public medical colleges in Kakinada, Kurnool, Vishakhapatnam, and Warangal. The project was completed in July 2010.

The project was awarded to the consortium of Wipro GE Healthcare Limited, an international equipment manufacturer, and Medall Healthcare Private Limited, a chain of diagnostic services, after a competitive bid. The winning bidder, selected among three competitive bids, proposed an average price per scan which was nearly 50 percent less than the prevailing market rate, enabling the government to provide services to a larger number of underserved patients within the allocated budget.
