Seven days a week - Preetha Reddy works Sundays too. "Our father always tells us sickness has no holiday," says the 53-year-old heir apparent and eldest among the four daughters of Apollo Hospitals Group founder Dr Prathap C. Reddy. In the past year the Apollo Group commissioned five hospitals and took the total bed strength to 8,000.

"Being the largest is not about the number of beds or the number of people we treat but about delivering cutting-edge quality in each case handled and excelling at that," says Reddy.
