Accentuating the importance of sports and games in ensuring good health, Apollo Hospitals acquired a franchisee "Apollo Eagles" in the inaugural edition of the Dart Premier League (DPL), scheduled between June 5 –11, 2016. The eight member team consists of five men and three women players. The team members are:
Arnab Raha (Captain), Chirag Kapoor, Kaushik Padhi, Rahul Shaw, Dipak Choudhary, Nivedita Sarkar, Vidisha Parekh, Surabhi Borar
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Rupali Basu, President and CEO ER, Apollo Hospitals Group, India, said, "Games are a great way to de-stress at the end of a long day, and play a major role in ensuring our overall health and wellbeing. As healthcare leaders and pioneers of cutting-edge medical facilities in Eastern India, we feel that our association with the sport of darts is a step in the right direction, and will help promote an overall culture of health and wellness."
The team, which answers to the call 'Targeted Therapy' commenced their campaign with a visit to the Apollo Gleneagles Cancer Hospital, renowned as the premier destination for 360 degree cancer care under one roof in this part of the country. Here, the members were shown the advanced treatment facilities and cure options at the disposal of the hospital, including the powerful Novalis Tx machine the latest in cancer care and management. The Novalis Tx machine, which delivers pin point accuracy, has transformed the treatment options for cancer.
Dr Basu observed, "Our targeted cancer therapy regimen delivers pinpoint treatment accuracy leveraging the advanced capabilities of the Novalis Tx system. Like the tip of a dart hitting the bulls eye, it strikes accurately at the tumour and the diseased cells, and helps ensure the best results for our patients."
