New Delhi: Wipro GE Healthcare, a joint venture between Wipro and global conglomerate GE's healthcare business, on Friday announced that all the stand-alone units and plants of GE Healthcare in India would be integrated into a single entity.

The integration would simplify the structure through consolidation of GE Healthcare's life sciences and medical diagnostics business units and X-Ray manufacturing plants, the two companies said.

As per the consolidation plan, several existing stand- alone business units and manufacturing plants of GE Healthcare in India would be integrated under the Wipro GE Healthcare entity.

The companies said that the strategic move would help in effective management, resource mobilisation and accelerating the growth for GE Healthcare, the USD 17 billion healthcare business of General Electric Company (GE), through Wipro GE Healthcare's large distribution network.

Currently, Wipro GE Healthcare distributes about 85 per cent of GE Healthcare's products and solutions in India.

The GE Healthcare business units to be integrated into the existing joint venture with Wipro include GE Healthcare Life Sciences, GE Healthcare Medical Diagnostics and GE Medical Systems India.
