National Network of Emergency Services

The National Network of Emergency Services is operational across 9 cities in the country (Chennai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune, Bilaspur, Kakinada and Bangalore). The system comprises 22 emergency rooms, 60 ambulances and over 500 personnel. The network is expanding rapidly and is expected to cover all the major towns and cities in the country by the end of 2006.

Air Ambulance

Saving time is the first step in saving lives. Air Ambulance Services are used when ground transport could endanger a patient's life. They are also indispensable when the patient is in a remote area and time is critical.

Apollo is equipping each of its hospitals with emergency air ambulance services. The Kolkata and Colombo hospitals have roof helipads. Our Delhi and Hyderabad hospitals have landing facilities.

Both fixed wing aircrafts and helicopters provide the services. Aviation companies take care of the aviation logistics. Medical aspects like trained personnel, equipment and care are provided by the 1066 emergency services.

Details of contact people for the Air Ambulance Service can be obtained from the Department of Emergency Medicine, Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad.

Apollo's Air Ambulance services conquer time and distance in emergencies. And saves lives.
