While poaching is indeed present in every industry, doctors are different than many others, say IT professionals. Hospitals spend a lot of effort in growing theirs doctors. End of the day, public doesn't develop stickiness to the hospitals but to the doctors. Star hospitals charge a ransom but a lot of that goes to the Star doctors.If a hospital wants more footfalls, it has to poach one of the stars at a better remuneration. Well-managed hospitals are a very profitable business, but I feel tends to plateau based on the limited supply of star doctors. Need more growth, then hire more such folks.
