Preetha Reddy, 53, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Enterprise, loves art and has even trained in the fine arts. But the healing provided by her chain of hospitals gives her even more pleasure.

"Seeing a critically ill patient turn the corner and recover makes my day," says the daughter of Apollo Hospitals founder Dr Prathap C. Reddy. "We are focusing on better processes in healthcare delivery, asking all the time how we can make it all smarter, quicker, more cost effective with better outcomes."

As of March this year, Apollo had 8,717 beds across 54 hospitals - 37 owned and 17 managed. Reddy worries about the health of Indian woman. "They tend to make their own health the last priority," she says. "I tell them to look after themselves first, because if a woman falls ill the whole family suffers."
