History

AUM Hospitals, a 100-bedded hospital in Pondicherrry, earlier known as PMM Hospitals, commenced its operations in November 2008 as a nephrology and kidney center and has since been upgraded to a super-specialty hospital that has conducted more than 75,000 dialysis till date and it currently performs about 1,300 dialysis sessions every month. In terms of volume, the hospital today ranks among the top five hospitals in southern India for dialysis. In order to leverage its strength in Nephrology and Urology, PMM had tied up with a leading US- based Dialysis chain, Davita Inc., to provide world-class dialysis treatment services.

In September 2012, Auromed Hospitals Private Limited (AUM Hospitals) led by Ms Gitanjali JB and colleagues, acquired a 51% stake in PMM, in order to develop it into a leading multi-specialty tertiary care hospital in Pondicherry. AHPL has a team of leading doctors and entrepreneurs who, as strategic investors, intend to scale up the operations of   PMM   to   a   ‘multi-specialty’ unit by creating centers of excellence in various subspecialties of medicine and surgery like Cardiology, Pulmonology, Surgical & Medical Gastroenterology, Orthopedics, Infertility, Pediatrics, Transplants, Imaging Service Centre, Diabetology, Preventive Health and Trauma & Critical Care along with basic specialities like General Medicine, General Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Thus, AUM Hospitals is poised to become a multi super-specialty hospital, which will cater to all types of general and super-specialty medical care in Pondicherry.
