Metropolis Healthcare Limited, headquartered in Mumbai, India, is one of three leading chains of pathology laboratories in India. The business was founded by Dr. Sushil Shah, a well-regarded pathologist, in 1981 as a reference laboratory in Mumbai undertaking specialized tests for other laboratories. Over time, it acquired many smaller laboratories, typically leaders in their respective markets, to become a national player. The company currently has a network of more than 70 laboratories in India, Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates and South Africa.
Warburg Pincus made an investment in Metropolis in 2010 to support the company’s growth strategy and to help fund future acquisitions.
