Consumer electronics goods maker Intex Technologies today announced foraying into the medical tourism sector through its venture 'Intex Care'.

The company is aiming to provide healthcare services at affordable costs by integrating its offerings through a network of hospitals, Intex Technologies said in a statement.

"In line with that objective, it has launched this service in India initially and will expand to other major location in the world in near future," it said.

Intex Care, which is currently present in five cities -- Delhi (NCR), Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Kolkata -- through its network of partner hospitals, would expand into tier II & III cities besides rural parts of the country.

Commenting on the development, Intex Care Director Pankaj Goel said: "With Intex Care it is our endeavour to create the strongest bonds ensuring wellness and healthy life cutting across the age groups of people in India and the world.

"With this, we are committed to facilitating globally acknowledged medical care at the most affordable prices with a network of our partner multi-super speciality hospitals."

"This move will allow the smartphone giant to create a nationwide footprint and be known not only as a mobile device company but, a leading healthcare player too," he added.
