A dream to offer world-class services to the general masses of our country, where the need for healthcare is the greatest but access to quality health care the least… that is what got us into a business about 5 years ago.With the coming of Dr. Prince Surana in our group, he brought together a dedicated and motivated group of young professionals, and developed the concept of collaborative teamwork and demonstrated that modern medicine, in totality, could be practiced only through organized teams. This was successively proved when within a very short span of time the cardiology department was propelled into the top league of the cardiac healthcare space within Mumbai. This realization laid the foundation of one of the components of our mission – to make modern medicine affordable and accessible to all. At Surana Group of Hospitals & Research Centre, one of our most effective differentiators is the reconciliation of clinical and corporate governance. As a part of our clinical governance, we defined our core purpose: 'to practice medicine as it should be', implying that we will always provide medical care with a human face, we will provide relief to our patients and aim to increase their longevity and will do all this through a transparency of process and practice. As a part of our corporate governance, we resolved that we would run our business as trustees of shareholder interest. We would constitute a board would board with a fair mix of working and independent directors, we would report our profits faithfully, we would abide by the laws of the land in the various locations of our presence and we would strive to enhance stakeholder value in a responsible sustainable way. Going forward, we intend to continue investing our resources to improve the accessibility of quality of health care and make it more affordable to the general masses. We intend to do this through a self-sufficient business model that will generate value for all our stakeholders – our patients, shareholders, associates, employees and the community at large.
