Pritika Singh, the 31-year-old CEO of Prayag Hospitals Group, has set her sights on overseas expansion and pan-India growth for the leading hospital chain in Western-UP. With travel resuming after the dip in COVID-19 numbers, Singh is determined to take Prayag Hospitals to new heights. Along with international expansion, the group also plans to open five new hospitals in Western Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand within the next five years.
Singh, an award-winning healthcare entrepreneur and a trailblazer in a male-dominated industry, became the CEO of Prayag Hospitals Group at the young age of 23. Despite the challenges she faced as a non-medical professional in the healthcare sector, she leveraged her business acumen and strategic thinking to take the hospital to new heights.
With a background in business management, Singh has a passion for mental health and yoga and entered the healthcare industry in 2009 at the age of 18. She recognizes the importance of entrepreneurship in the healthcare sector, noting that hospital management experts can help relieve the pressure on doctors by implementing innovative strategies and out-of-the-box thinking.
Singh has received multiple awards for her contributions to the healthcare sector and is a strong advocate for mental health. Under her leadership, Prayag Hospitals Group has made mental health a priority, dedicating a space and department to address these issues with affordable and quality treatment for all.
As the hospital industry in India is expected to reach $132 Bn by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 16-17%, there is huge potential for healthcare entrepreneurs to channel their investments and focus on expansion for exponential growth. Singh is poised to take advantage of this growth and lead Prayag Hospitals to even greater success.
