Wonder of Aravind Eyecare System: Thing of Consciousness

Aravind Eye-care System based in Madurai is the world’s largest ophthalmologist provider in the world with more than 350,000 eye operations a year. About 60 percent of operations are at low-cost or no cost, which makes it one of the best examples of social impact at the lower end of the pyramid. Dr. Govindappa Venkaswamy, lovingly known as Dr. V, founder of Aravind eye hospital was not only a superlative humanitarian but also a great visionary and thought-provoking leader. Dr. V employed the best use of optimization techniques, technology & innovation, dedicated staff and structured ways to cross subside eye care among the patients. Aravind Eye Care System has won both the Gates Award for Global Health and Hilton Humanitarian award. The article “Driving Down the cost of high-quality care” by McKinsey is worth reading to know the business model and holistic foundation behind the hospital. I had read about Mr. V a long time back and deeply impressed by his emphatic commitment to helping less privileged people in the society. This on the back of world-class healthcare quality…Healthcare Par EXCELLENCE.
