Preetha Reddy, Vice Chairperson of Apollo Hospitals, has replaced Dr. Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman of Manipal Hospitals as president of NATHEALTH. NATHEALTH is an apex industry association of healthcare providers.
“Today, we stand at the crossroads of a time which is ready for change. At one end, we have taken giant strides to establish ourselves as a highly-skilled and efficient medical ecosystem with excellent clinical outcomes driving a powerful value proposition. But this is counterbalanced by a massive disease burden, large dichotomies in healthcare delivery, and a paucity of health infrastructure. The path to achieve a holistic goal of universal healthcare hinges on collaboration where all the key industry stakeholders can come together deliberate, cooperate, and work in tandem to bridge the vital gaps in service delivery. Equally important is to establish a collaborative platform to coordinate national resilience against COVID pandemic through value based public private partnerships,” said Reddy while taking the new charge at NATHEALTH.
Dr. Harsh Mahajan, Founder, and Chief Radiologist Mahajan Imaging is now the senior vice president of NATHEALTH. Similarly, Badhri Iyenger, Cluster Managing Director of South Asia (SAARC) & South East Asia (ASEAN) at Smith & Nephew is now the vice president of the body.
Dr. Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, CEO Fortis Healthcare will be secretary and Dr. Shravan Subramayam, Managing Director, India, and Neighbouring Markets at Roche Diagnostics India Pvt. Ltd is the new treasurer of NATHEALTH.
