Dr Prathap Reddy, considered a living legend and an architect of modern health care in India, was conferred with Lifetime Achievement Awards 2022 by Forbes India, The Economic Times and Business Standard

In 1983, when most Indians were dependent only on charitable trusts and government-run hospitals, Dr Prathap Chandra Reddy saw potential in India’s healthcare sector and started the first professionally run 150-bed private hospital – Apollo Hospitals in Chennai, India.

Over time, Apollo Hospitals has grown to become a pioneer in the corporate healthcare sector in India, with over 70 hospitals under its umbrella having more than 7,500 clinicians who treat 400,000 patients annually. The establishment of Apollo Hospitals stems from Dr Reddy’s dream to make world-class health care accessible and affordable to every Indian.

For his courageous and colossal vision to provide world-class, high-quality hospital care in Inda, Dr Prathap Reddy was honoured with three prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards consecutively from:

  1. FILA 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award from Forbes India for leadership Excellence 
  2. Business Standard Lifetime Achievement for Corporate Excellence
  3. The Economic Times’ Lifetime Achievement Award for filling a void in India’s healthcare system

Dr Reddy has been providing quality healthcare in India, showing no signs of slowing down as he says, “health has no holiday.”

The awards stand testimony to Dr Reddy’s tireless perseverance in establishing a pan-India group addressing the country’s growing need for high-quality advanced healthcare so patients do not have to go abroad for treatment.

Under Dr Reddy’s astute leadership, the Group has established a landmark healthcare chain with a presence in pharmacies, diagnostics and retail healthcare, becoming Asia’s foremost integrated healthcare services provider. His contributions are widely recognized by patients, doctors, the healthcare fraternity worldwide, the community at large, and the Government of India.
