Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Chairman said, “The expansion of the pan-India Hospital network will cross a new frontier with the commissioning of the Navi Mumbai Hospital. Even as we launch and add the 71st hospital to the network with bed capacity set to surpass 10,000 beds, our commitment to uphold the highest standards of healthcare across the country remains the same as it was when we set up our first hospital in Chennai in 1983.

Over this period there have been far reaching advancements in skills, knowhow and technology enabling us to serve patients better. Yet, the changing disease profile throws up new challenges. The emergence and rapid prevalence of Non-communicable Diseases has already reached alarming proportions and poses a grave threat to the demographic dividend of the nation. It is essential to develop a culture of proactive screening across the nation with an emphasis on preventive healthcare rather than curative.

Another major concern is the widespread pollution of air and water across the country. This represents a severe threat to citizens across the country and needs to be addressed on a war footing. The Hon’ble Prime Ministers vision in launching and sustaining the Swachh Bharat initiative must be respected and citizens should resolve to convert this into reality as it will provide far reaching benefits to healthcare and wellbeing.”

He added, “We continue to incorporate innovative technologies with an emphasis on patient centricity. Technology must be leveraged to deliver benefits ranging from high efficiency of treatment, elevation in patient safety, wider coverage, cost effectiveness and increase in speed of healthcare delivery. We are maximizing the use of technology by our specialists, our patients, as well as the organization in both clinical and non-clinical areas as we truly believe in transforming healthcare delivery with technology.

A key ingredient for the healthcare sector is skilled manpower. Apollo is blessed with a wonderful network of consultants and associates who are committed to giving the very best to each patient who walks through our doors. For the country to realise its immense potential to provide healthcare of the highest quality to all global citizens, it is imperative to upskill our human resources. Apollo has embarked on numerous programs towards developing, equipping and upskilling medical consultants and healthcare professionals.

Awards and accolades bestowed upon us motivate us to work even harder. We are delighted to be recognized for our efforts and will continue to work towards elevating the standards of healthcare across the country.”
