Apollo is Asia's foremost integrated healthcare provider and has been honoured with the trust of over 37 million patients who came from 120 countries. Every year, over 50,000 patients from across the world travel to Apollo Hospitals for an international standard of medical treatment at an affordable cost.
Speaking on the occasion of the momentous 30th anniversary, Dr Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group said"Our journey of healing began in Chennai with the launch of the country's first corporate hospital. Over the years, Apollo has earned global recognition for its highly skilled medical talent and world class infrastructure that enable it to deliver clinical outcomes that compare with the best institutions in the world, at an affordable cost. Apollo will aggressively propagate the need for personalized check-ups. We were the pioneers in this space and we want to continue to do what we do better. Accessibility is just as important as affordability when it comes to administering healthcare and hence the medical fraternity as a whole needs to invest in better IT Infrastructure to ensure smarter patient management, gain remote access and upgrade technology to stay ahead.""""
Dr. Reddy added "Trusted across the world, Apollo Hospitals is committed to serving the underserved geographies in India and will be adding over 2,500 beds over the next three years while simultaneously strengthening its prowess as a global healthcare destination".
Ms. Preetha Reddy, Managing Director, Managing Director said "With unparalleled Clinical excellence combined with world class expertise, tempered with ever-tender empathy, Apollo's mission has always been to bring healthcare of international standards within the reach of every individual. Keeping that in mind we have spread our footprint across tier II and III locations to serve more people and enable positive clinical outcomes. To bring in our 30th anniversary of serving the community, Apollo Hospitals, Chennai will be organising 30,000 health screenings across Tamil Nadu in keeping with its credo of encouraging people to stay well and healthy". Apollo Hospitals had pioneered the concept of preventive health care in India with the Apollo Health Checks and has performed over 8 million health checks since inception.
"Apollo's invaluable asset is the trust of 37 million patients earned over 30 years. The journey this far has been both challenging and rewarding. We have learnt from each challenge that came our way and it has helped mould us into what we are today. We will continue to strive to bring world Class Healthcare to India and help boost the sector as a whole and contribute to our economy." said Ms. Suneeta Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group.
