India’s super specialty hospital network Apollo has joined hands with Italy’s rehabilitation specialist Kos group to launch a 64-bed rehabilitation hospital in Hyderabad that will use robots to help patients who have suffered heart strokes, neurological disorders, brain or spine injuries or other post-operative orthopaedic problems.
The joint venture ApoKos will eliminate the requirement of therapists to assist patients with nervous system disorders that may arise during recovery.
Apollo will also convert its cancer management infrastructure into separate functional divisions called Apollo Cancer Institutes, a statement from the group said.
According to the hospital’s Chairman Prathap C Reddy, Apollo will commission its 71st hospital in Navi Mumbai and is set to surpass the 10,000 beds capacity. As per the hospital network’s second quarter results, its Chennai-based hospital reported a 16 per cent increase in standalone revenues at Rs 1,634 crore.
