  • The first quarter of the new financial year saw Apollo Hospitals facing the Covid-19 challenge anew as the second wave swept across the country.

    Our experience over the last year and the dedication of our doctors, nurses and paramedical staff that we emerged through the second wave successfully saving lives and ensuring that no patient suffered for want of care.

Covid-19 cases drive revenue for the hospital and diagnostic segment

During the quarter, the occupancy across the group stood at 5,108 beds (67% occupancy) compared to 2,742 beds (38% occupancy) in the June 2020 quarter.
