Read story of  Dr Preetha Reddy
 
India has given birth to great businessmen and businesswomen, and Dr Preetha Reddy is one of them. She is not only the managing director of Apollo Hospitals but she is also one of the pioneer businesswomen in India’s healthcare industry.
 
Dr Preetha Reddy is responsible for the operations of the Apollo Hospitals group and works closely with healthcare practitioners at Apollo Hospitals to come up with contemporary protocols and raise the bar on clinical outcomes.
 
Dr Preetha Reddy took guidance from her father, Dr Prathap C Reddy, who is the pioneer of corporatized healthcare in the country, and joined Apollo Hospitals as the Joint Managing Director in 1989. In this position, she worked hard to enhance the competitiveness of Apollo Hospitals and in five years, she became the Managing Director of Apollo Hospitals.
 
As a Managing Director, she spearheaded the growth of Apollo Hospitals as quaternary and tertiary care hospitals and primary care and diagnostic family clinics and took the healthcare consulting, business process operations and healthcare technology services to a whole new level.
 
Apart from carrying out her duties as the Managing Director of Apollo Hospitals, Dr Preetha Reddy works closely with government and industry bodies to shape policies and related decisions on key healthcare issues. 
 
Under Dr Preetha Reddy’s leadership, Apollo Hospitals came up with ‘Save A Child's Heart’ initiative, where over 5,000 surgeries have been performed on children suffering from heart diseases. Dr Preetha Reddy is also responsible for the development of Apollo Isha Vidya Rural School, which focuses on the overall development of children in rural areas. 
 
For her outstanding work and contribution to the healthcare sector, Dr Preetha Reddy has been ranked in the international list of ’50 Most Powerful Women in Business’, compiled by Fortune, for three consecutive years – 2009, 2010, and 2011. 
 
In addition, she has been included in the list of ‘The Most Powerful Women in Business’, compiled by Fortune India, for 2011, 2012, and 2013. For her foresight and contribution to the fields of healthcare and social science, Dr Preetha Reddy received the Life Time Achievement Award from the Loyola Forum for Historical Research.
 
Dr Preetha Reddy was always interested in the Sciences and management roles, which is why she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Stella Maris College Chennai and Master’s degree in Public Administration from Madras University. Later, she was conferred the Doctor of Science degree by the Tamil Nadu Dr M.G.R. Medical University for her outstanding contribution in healthcare.
 
Dr Preetha Reddy became successful in life because she had a clear purpose and was certain about her goals. She was determined to enhance the field of healthcare in India and she did that despite the challenges in life. 
 
Even after gaining success, she did not forget the underprivileged in the society – not only did she come up with healthcare initiatives to cure diseases but she also established educational programs for the poor. This is what we should learn from Dr Preetha Reddy. 
 
No matter how successful we are, we should think about how we can help the poor. In addition, we should always follow our dreams and never lose track of our goals despite the difficulties and challenges.
