Apollo Hospitals has always strongly believed in social initiatives that help transcend barriers. In keeping with this, the group has started several impactful programmes in this area. One among these initiatives is SACHi (Save a Child’s Heart Initiative) – a community service initiative with the aim of providing quality pediatric cardiac care and financial support to children from underprivileged sections of society suffering from heart diseases. Apollo also runs the SAHI (Society to Aid the Hearing Impaired) initiative to help poor children with hearing impairment, and the CURE Foundation which is focused on cancer screening, cure and rehabilitation for those in need. In the area of Cancer care Apollo has also joined hands with Yuvraj Singh’s YOUWECAN to organize massive cancer screenings. Apollo regularly conducts comprehensive health screening camps across the nation. The Group actively leverages its telemedicine and mHealth capabilities to take its screening programmes to even remote corners of the country.
Apollo’s remarkable story has captured India’s attention. For its service to the nation, the Group was felicitated with the honour of a commemorative postage stamp bearing its name. For his untiring pursuit of excellence in healthcare, Dr. Prathap C Reddy, was bestowed with the second highest civilian award, the ‘Padma Vibhushan’, by the Government of India.
Recently Apollo Hospitals celebrated its 30th year. The Group, led by Dr. Prathap Reddy, reaffirmed its goals and redefined their focus. With ambitious projects like Apollo Reach Hospitals, a strong focus on preventive healthcare and an unabated commitment to nurture excellence and expertise in healthcare, Apollo Hospitals envisions for a new horizon – a future where the nation is healthy, where its people are fighting fit, and India emerges as the preferred global healthcare destination.
This quality of patient care is possible in Apollo Hospitals because of an engaged workforce that takes pride in its day-to-day responsibilities. They are able to alleviate feelings of stress and fear in patients while instilling in them a positive approach towards treatment. Through small acts of kindness, they create a superior patient experience that few others are able to match.
