Mr. Chandrababu Naidu complimented the Apollo Group for developing their network of hospitals in far-away towns as well. He emphasized that health care should not be looked as a solely limited to the affluent society and top class facilities should be made available to the poor as well.
Dr. Prathap C. Reddy said that their 57th Specialty Hospital in India was the first super-brand hospital in Nellore. "This is a new beginning in healthcare which brings with it greater hope and a healthier tomorrow," he said.

But that one belief, that continues to enthuse me, and encourages me to take healthcare to the remotest areas in India is that 'Life is priceless and good health is our most precious gift", said Dr. Reddy.
