Vaatsalya Hospital mentioned in Business Today’s article “Change Therapy”
Every day, whenever he is in Chennai, Dr Prathap C. Reddy, founder and Chairman of Apollo Hospitals Enterprise, visits his group's flagship hospital on Greams Road. Reddy, 79, has been following this routine ever since the hospital was set up three decades ago. He inspects the premises, meets the staff and sees patients. He often talks to patients' relatives as well to find out what they think of the facilities the hospital provides. "Feedback is important if we have to continuously improve," says Reddy.
While 70% of India’s population lives in semi-urban and rural areas, majority of the healthcare facilities are in urban/metro areas and not accessible to these families.
Vaatsalya is bridging this gap by building primary and secondary care hospitals in semi-urban and rural areas. Vaatsalya currently has nine hospitals across Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
