Superbrands India

Apollo Hospitals (India)

Apollo Hospitals is a Superbrand. Apollo Hospitals was the spark that ignited the healthcare revolution in India.

Launched in 1983 in Chennai by Founder-chairman Dr. Prathap C. Reddy, the first hospital was powered by a small group of 25 dedicated professionals.

Today, nearly 30 years later, Apollo is a giant enterprise which now comprises 54 hospitals, 60 diagnostic clinics, 1500 pharmacies and more than 26 million patients treated from 120 countries.

A pioneer in clinical excellence, Apollo has now introduced nine centres of excellence, including specialisations in cardiac sciences, orthopaedics, neurosciences, emergency services, cancer, transplant medicine, gastrosciences, preventive medicine and obstetrics & gynaecology.

Apollo Hospitals offers an array of sophisticated diagnostic and treatment technologies, introducing India’s first 320-slice CT scanner, the first CyberKnife at the Apollo Speciality Cancer Hospital in Chennai, and the Novalis TX at Hyderabad and Kolkata.

A further extension to its brand franchise is Apollo Teleclinics, bringing super specialist quality healthcare via telemedicine to rural and remote parts of India, and internationally to a pan-African network.

The Apollo Institute of Robotic Surgery offers the Da Vinci Si surgical system — the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available in the world.

Apollo has also introduced the Day Surgery facility, for patients needing elective surgeries or requiring short-stay, surgically-induced hospitalisation which offers to allow them to return home the same day.

In the face of the rapidly escalating concern of diabetes, the group introduced Apollo Sugar Clinics, which leverage new technologies to enhance disease management and accessibility.

The trinity of excellence, expertise and empathy define the Apollo brand and propel its mission to touch lives, to heal and to continuously improve healthcare delivery. The Apollo brand promises worldclass healthcare and gives its patients the comfort and confidence that they will receive the most contemporary medical care available, anywhere in the world.
