It also includes Hosmat Joint Replacement Center and Hosmat Neurosciences. It is currently undergoing expansion to 500 beds, which would make it the largest speciality hospital of its kind in Asia.

Initially known as the 'accident hospital', later it was in the news as a centre for knee transplantation procedures. Now in its second decade, it was expanded in 2005 after the acquisition of an old ITI corporate office next door. Now it is India's largest orthopedic and neuro center.
