Apollo to take medical care to Tier II, III cities

The Apollo Hospitals has formulated a comprehensive policy to take quality medical care to the doorsteps of the people in Tier-II and tier-III cities, a top official of the hospital said. “Our vision is limitless and funds are not a problem. We will open 10 to 15 centres in tier-II and tier-III cities across the country in the next 24 months,” Apollo Hospitals Group Founder Chairman Dr Prathap C Reddy told reporters on the sidelines of an educational programme on stem cell transplantation, organised by the Apollo Hospitals here today. He said Apollo Hospitals Group would offer quality medical services to the people of rural India in the coming years. Stating that the doctors were underpaid, he said that there would be acute shortage of medical professionals in India as more youngsters were taking up Information Technology as a career due to its high remuneration. He said the Apollo Hospitals Group, through its research arm, would encourage further discussions and symposia in the field of stem cell transplantation.
