Strengthening its place in the Indian healthcare delivery space, this year alone Medlife acquired two healthtech startups. Medlife acquired MedLabz.com in January 2019 and Myra in May 2019.

According to Crunchbase, Medlife has raised a total of $32.7 million till date. Earlier this year in April, Medlife raised around ₹120 crores from Prasad Uno Family Trust, which is Tushar Kumar’s family trust.
