NEW YORK and CHENNAI, India, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AGS Health, a global provider of revenue cycle services to hospitals and physicians in the US, today announced that the company will be opening their fourth delivery center in Delhi, India, and has grown to over 2,000 employees globally as it celebrates its third year in business.
