Chairman & Managing Director – Aster DM Healthcare
“In Pursuit of providing healthcare that is affordable and accessible“
We have been consistent in our mission to provide quality healthcare at affordable cost at the door steps of the people we serve, ever since we started journey of "Caring Misison with a Global Vision" 3 decades back. This rhymes well with the universal healhcare philosophy of Quality, Affordability and Accessibility.
In the area of Quality we can showcase umpteen awards and certificate providing our credentials, but more importantly it runs deeper in the DNA of Aster DM Healthcare. Our team drive the quality program as the corner stone with the strong belief that there is no fishing line in the race for excellence.
Healthcare worldwide is becoming more and more expensive, but we try to make our services Affordable. Healthcare though deemed as an 'industry' is much more than that - we strongly belive that profite should be a byproduct and not the aim in healthcare, which help us to transcend into our core values, of Compassion, Integrity and Respect. In an exercise to serve all sections of the societym, we have rolled out different brands with varying price bands. We also provide support to those who are in need through our Foundations and CSR activities.
Accesability to healthcare services is very inportant focus area for us - we provide services closer to our customer through the large networks of clinics and pharmacies - however that is only like touching the tip of iceberge. We are in the process of rolling out programs, leveraging information technology to make accessibility much wider and deeper, carring delivery of healthcare to the homes of people.
Our recently adopted brands promises "We'll Treat You Well" is actually promise to all our internal and external stakeholders, which include our partners, employees, patients, business associates and public. From top down, we promise our internal stakeholders that we will treat everyone well.
Then as Asterian, we sing a chorus to our external stakeholders that we we'll treat them well.
Many ask me to recipe of our success - from single doctor clinic in Dubai to a network of nearly 323 establishments, spread in 9 countries with over 19,593 staff. I strongly believe that it has been due to the blessings of the almighty, the support of the visionary leaders and the people of th countries we operate and the hard work of the united and passionate team of Asterians.
