The hospital serves the people based on its core values of ICARE (Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence). Aakash Healthcare’s anniversary also marks a rare feat in the private healthcare – against the usual time of 2-3 years, the hospital had achieved the breakeven point in half that time, i.e. 18 months since its inception in the year August 2017.
Remarking on this achievement, Dr Aashish Chaudhry, Managing Director, Aakash Healthcare, Dwarka, said, “Running a private healthcare organization is an extremely challenging job in our country where, as a population, personal care & expenditure on healthcare is still far behind compared to the spends trend on shopping & another lifestyle. In recent times, healthcare has gone through even more challenges with constantly changing scenario around us, both in terms of disease pattern & the policies for private healthcare. However, amidst all this, Aakash Healthcare is very happy to be able to serve people and gain the required trust & confidence along with stability during the process, which will help to continue serving the community in the years to come. We are thankful to all those who have supported us in these years, including investors, patrons, advisors, and people for reposing their faith in our abilities. In the current situation, it is our duty to continue serving people and we have made substantial headway by serving both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients with equal attention, affection, and care. We acknowledge the hard work put by our teams and their dedicated members, without whom, we may not have been able to provide our services to the people. They trusted us and through their hard work, contributed to lifting Aakash Healthcare where it has reached today. I am sure they will continue to honor the patients' needs with similar hard work and dedication and help us widen our services to larger geographical areas and serve more people.”
Speaking to this occasion Dr. Kousar A Shah, COO, Aakash Healthcare Group, Dwarka, said, “The recent healthcare policies, especially in the last few years, have brought lots of speed breakers for the healthcare functioning, they have rather added new challenges to the already ever-challenging private healthcare to continue serving people seamlessly. At the same time, Aakash Healthcare has emerged as a bright spot by deftly balancing divergent aspects of healthcare as a service provider and as an enabler. Aakash Healthcare's growth has been fueled by doing the basics right, learning from the mistakes, and moving in the right direction despite setbacks, taking one step at a time, and focusing on consolidating the foundation while on the path of success and multiplication. Aakash's success can be a motivating factor for the entrepreneurs who are considering becoming a healthcare player and serve people despite the gloom the pandemic has brought. In the days to come, we wish to widen our services with greater geographical coverage to serve more people.”
