We have been consistent in our mission to provide quality healthcare at affordable cost at the door steps of people we serve, ever since we started the journey of “Caring Mission with a Global Vision” 3 decades back. This rhymes well with the universal healthcare philosophy of Quality, Affordability and Accessibility.
In the area of Quality we can showcase umpteen awards and certificates proving our credentials, but more importantly it runs deeper in the DNA of Aster DM Healthcare. Our teams drive the quality program as the cornerstone with a strong belief that there is no finishing 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 believe that profit should be a byproduct and not the aim in healthcare, which helps us to transcend into our core values of Compassion, Integrity and Respect. In an exercise to serve all sections of the society, 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.
