Date: 14 Jul 2011

Apollo Hospitals has launched its first Apollo Day Surgery at Alwarpet in Chennai. An innovative healthcare facility, it has been designed to provide comprehensive healthcare services to address all the health related needs of a family. It is a dedicated facility for minor surgeries requiring short-stay.

Apollo Day Surgery was inaugurated by Dr. Prathap C. Reddy, Founder-Executive Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group in the honorary presence of Mr. Andrew T Simkin, Consul General, US Consulate Chennai and Mr. Ajit Singh, Consul General, Consulate of The Republic of Singapore, Chennai. Apollo Hospitals’ keen focus on minimally invasive surgeries was the genesis of this dedicated facility for Day Surgeries or minor surgeries requiring duration of just 60 minutes or less in the Operation Theatre. Apollo Day Surgery is committed to early mobilization while maximizing patient convenience.

Apollo Day Surgery, a contemporary, state-of-the art facility has been designed to motivate patients going in for elective surgeries and also those requiring short-stay surgeries with an offering that allows them to return home within the same day and recuperate in a familiar environment. I am confident that this new offering from Apollo Hospitals will soon surpass all patient satisfaction benchmarks"".

Dr.Preetha Reddy, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals, Group, added, ""The healthcare revolution in India catalyzed by Apollo Hospitals witnessed its beginnings at the erstwhile HM Hospitals, located in Alwarpet.
