The first edition of BW Businessworld Hospital Awards, one of the most prestigious event in the healthcare industry, will chart the future roadmap for the industry. A high power jury gathered on Tuesday (29 April) to acknowledge, honour and reward hospitals and leaders for their excellence in the healthcare delivery segment.

“It is good to be recognise people and services in a country where there are numerous players present in the healthcare industry”, said Dr K.K. Agarwal.

The eminent jury comprised of stellar healthcare industry experts nominated all the winners including Dr K.K. Kalra, Advisor, Association of Healthcare Providers (India) and ex-CEO, NABH; Dr Vijay Agarwal, President, Consortium of Accredited Healthcare Organisations (CAHO); Dr Yashpal Bhatia, Chairman and MD, Astron Healthcare; Shobha Mishra Ghosh, Assistant Secretary General, FICCI; Dr K.K. Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India and Former President, IMA; Shhyam R Singhania, Chairman, ENARR Capital; Sudarshan Jain, Secretary General, IPA and Former MD, Abbott Healthcare and Sumit Goel, Partner-Healthcare Advisory, KPMG. The jury was chaired by (Hony) Brig. Dr Arvind Lal, Chairman, FICCI Health Services Committee and Chairman and MD, Dr Lal PathLabs Ltd.

The Hospital awards aim to recognise the excellence, identify the prominence and celebrate the very best among those who bear the torch of excellence in the Healthcare Industry of India.

“The healthcare industry is now the flagship industry of our country and in that excellence is the key to development. We need to create more awareness to recognise the awards”, said Dr Yashpal Bhatia.

The parameters and criteria for judging the 10 categories, followed by the jury, were very concise in nature.

“We have a long way to go to recognise talent in the healthcare industry. We must compliment BW Business for not commercialising the awards like others do”, said Dr Vijay Agarwal.

A special jury recommendation CEO award will be given on the basis of the following parameters: financial performance, brand building, reach and community outreach of the hospital.

“We have not distributed the award instead we found the excellence of the organisation and then recognised them. For me, an award worthy CEO is a person who is financially viable and is able to satisfy the patients.”

The winners will be announced at the BW Businessworld Hospital Summit and Awards, which will be held in the national capital on 3rd May.
