Architect of Modern Healthcare in India

Dr Reddy received his premedical degree from the prestigious Madras Christian College and medical degree from Stanley Medical College, Chennai. Following his Fellowship from the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA, he went on to head research programmes at the Missouri State Chest Hospital. When Dr Reddy returned to India at the behest of his father, giving up a flourishing practice abroad, little did he realise he would set the stage for India to become a global healthcare destination.

Hence, the first Apollo Hospital came up in Chennai in 1983. It has to be said, amidst much skepticism. India in the early 80’s was not the easiest place for private enterprise. Moreover, private healthcare institutions other than small physician-owned nursing homes were unknown and they were not doing cutting edge work.

Dr Prathap Reddy’s vision was to bring international healthcare within the reach of every individual in India and it continues to be so. Over the years, it has been his deep conviction and charisma that has attracted the best medical talent to India including doctors from hospitals in the US and UK.
