Over the years, Landmark Group has built its reputation by building successful brands, fully understanding customer needs in the retail and hospitality space. Keeping this in mind, we decided to enter into this sector. After studying the business independently, we brought in professionals to provide the medical expertise and plan the business model of the clinics."
