1983 was not the beginning of just an ordinary hospital, or even just a hospital chain. It was a landmark year for the healthcare sector in India. Dr. Reddy founded the first Apollo hospital, (Apollo Hospitals, Chennai), with the sole objective of giving everyone in need an opportunity to receive the best medical care the world had to offer.
A seed sown in healthcare that would, over the next 2 decades, grow into a sprawling tree, covering hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, telemedicine, project consultancy and operations management, medical BPO services, education and research.
Today, Apollo is the largest corporate entity in healthcare in India. It has won almost every accolade in the country and quite a few outside it too.
