Apollo Hospitals – An Overview

Apollo’s vision for the next phase of development is to “Touch a Billion Lives”

Mission Statement:
“Our mission is to bring healthcare of International standards within the reach of every individual. We are committed to the achievement and maintenance of excellence in education, research and healthcare for the benefit of humanity”.

Apollo Hospitals was the forerunner of integrated healthcare in Asia, as well as globally. Today, the group’s futuristic vision has ensured that it has been in a position of strength at every touch point of the healthcare delivery chain. Its presence encompasses over 10,000 beds across 56 hospitals, more than 1500 pharmacies, over 100 primary care & diagnostic clinics, 115 telemedicine units across 9 countries, health insurance services, global projects consultancy, 15 academic institutions and a Research Foundation with a focus on global clinical trials, epidemiological studies, stem-cell and genetic research.

Over the past three decades Apollo Hospitals’ transformative journey has forged a legacy of excellence in Indian healthcare. The Group has continuously set the agenda and led by example in the blossoming private healthcare space. One of Apollo’s significant contributions has been the adoption of clinical excellence as an industry standard. Apollo pioneered the concept – the group was the first to invest in the pre-requisites that led to international quality accreditation like the JCI and also developed centres of excellence in Cardiac Sciences, Orthopaedics, Neurosciences, Emergency Care, Cancer and Organ Transplantation. Along with excellence the Apollo philosophy rests on the pillars of technological superiority, a warm patient-centric approach, a clear and distinct cost advantage and a edge in forward-looking research. Apollo’s spectacular success rests on sustained commitment and investments in each of these pillars.

The Group continues to break new ground in adopting new technology. From leveraging new age mobility, to getting futuristic equipment Apollo has always been ahead of the curve. Currently, the group believes in the tremendous potential of robotics and is investing heavily in making it a real and robust option for all. Apollo pioneered Tender Loving Care (TLC) and it continues to be the magic that inspires hope, warmth and a sense of ease in the patients.
