Monday, March 09, 2015

Apollo Hospitals has entered the Tier II town of Andhra with the launch of a 200-bedded Apollo Specialty Hospital (ASH) in Nellore.

Andhra Pradesh N Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated the facility, equipped with virtual ICU and Telemedicine Technology. It is expected to function as a one-stop solution for advanced medical care benefiting people in Nellore and nearby regions of Nellore, Prakasam, Kadapa and Chittoor.

Prathap C Reddy, Chairman and Founder, Apollo Group of Hospitals said, “While there has been tremendous progress in healthcare administration in urban areas, increasing penetration even in Tier II cities is a key task at hand and we are very keen on realising this using all tools at our disposal. Our eICU and digitised systems will play a crucial role in transforming rural healthcare and we will continue to implement them in our future endeavours in the State.”

According to a statement, ASH Nellore will offer advanced specialised treatment and cater to the needs of the people in the region with its telemedicine facility, a platform created for patients to consult with doctors located in distant locations electronically, without having to visit them. Not only will this help minimise the investment in medical travel but also facilitate better reach of Apollo Hospitals’ services, thereby furthering positive patient outcomes.
