Celebrating 30 years of healing

On September 10, 2013, my family of 70,000 will pause just for a moment to celebrate a transformational journey of healing, one that marks 30year of excellence, expertise and powering the nation's private healthcare revolution.

Our journey began with a very small group of passionate doctors and over the years, this passion translated to an unparalleled growth

Our mission was to bring quality healthcare to India, closer to every individual in need and ever since the years that went by have witnessed us defining excellence in healthcare, pioneering new medical techniques & technologies and setting benchmarks at every touch point of the medical value chain

The Apollo hospitals group today stands tall in the global healthcare landscape as an institution that is leading across multiple medical specialties measures in reference to the clinical outcome. Apollo hospitals is Asia's foremost integrate healthcare provider and has been honored with the trust of over 37 million patients who came to us from 120countries.

A constant in our journey of healing has been the unwavering support and encouragement of well-wishers like you who helped us address obstacles and forge new paths. We thank you for your belief in us.

Looking ahead, we are dedicated to helping India build a brighter and healthier future for all its citizens and in making this great nation, the preferred global healthcare destination.

India is well over a billion people and is confronted both by an unfinished agenda of eliminating communicable and infectious diseases, nutritional deficiencies, unsafe pregnancies and at the same time the challenge of escalating epidemic of non-communicable diseases like diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. In addressing these challenges, India needs the support of its influential citizens, a robust healthcare delivery framework and a foundation of strong legislature

Furthermore, a healthier tomorrow requires an investment into preventive healthcare. A stitch in time saves nine is a popular adage and it is very true for health. It was this very credo that led to the strong focus on preventive health care at Apollo hospitals. Even from an economic perspective healthcare as opposed to sending on treatment especially for diseases that could have been prevented with simple lifestyle changes

I firmly believe that personalized healthcare is the future and with this view, we have institutionalized a brand-new suite of Apollo personalized for every individual. In the course of the years ahead, this Endeavour will assist Indians to lead a healthier, more productive life

For 3 decades you have trusted us as your healthcare partner. We cherish and treasure your trust. We are steadfast in our commitment to excellence in every sphere of healthcare.

Your encouragement and good wishes would be pivotal for Apollo hospitals to break new ground and unlock our potential. After all it's not every day that one turns 30!
