Usha Banerjee, Group Director – Nursing, Apollo Hospitals Group in a press statement said: “For generations, nurses have played a key role in providing health services to millions of patients the world
over. Since a nurse’s role is critical care for extremely ill patients who need constant monitoring, empathy for the suffering of others is indispensable. The theme of this conclave focuses on the basic concept of care, but with a strong emphasis on administering it with confidence. This will help in improving patient safety and clinical outcomes. A sound nursing education is therefore vital for such a challenging task. Health providers also need to take care of themselves to be able to provide the same to others.”

Since then not only Apollo group hospitals but many other private hospital chains, include those with foreign collaboration, have grown across the country - making available advanced healthcare but also attracting large amount of patients from across the world to receive quality and cost-effective medical treatment.
