A decade after the establishment of India’s first corporate hospital, Apollo Hospitals in Chennai, on 30th September 1993, Dr. Prathap.C Reddy launched a dedicated state-of-the-art facility for cancer care in the same city. Originally named Apollo Cancer Hospital, it commenced operations as a 45-bed unit with medical oncology and eventually other treatment modalities like surgical and radiation oncology were added to the overall cancer offering.
