Boasting state-of-the-art technology, accomplished medical professionals and exclusive international accreditation, Apollo Bramwell is the Indian Oceans leading private hospital.
THE GREATEST WEALTH IS Health
From a high standard of care and treatment flexibility to private rooms and added peace of
mind, several private healthcare
benefits are immeasurable.
Aiming to provide these
boundless merits to the island
nation of Mauritius is Apollo
Bramwell Hospital (ABH).
About Apollo Bramwell
In November 2005, the
Chennai-based Apollo group
of hospitals and British
American Investment signed a
memorandum of understanding
to construct a 200-bed
multidisciplinary medical facility
in Mauritius. Today, ABH is the
Indian Oceans largest private
hospital, with over 200 nurses
and 200 physicians and dentists,
most of which are trained
or certified to international
ABH prides itself on being
a one-stop convenience,
with numerous inpatient and
outpatient services such as high
dependency units, neonatal,
cardiac and general intensive
care, paediatric private beds,
consultation rooms and a 24-
hour emergency facility.
In addition to patient comfort
with fully air conditioned rooms,
healthy meals three times a
day, individual TV screens and
internet access, visitors are also
catered for with special lounges,
cafeterias and shops.
For the founder and chairman
of Apollo Hospitals Group Dr.
Prathap C. Reddy, employing
technological advances to
provide patients with the best
care possible is a prime concern.
Our endeavour is to establish a
state-of-the-art hospital with the
highest standards of patient care
and with wide-ranging facilities
under one roof, he notes.
APOLLO BRAMWELL HOSPITAL
As the majority of us are all too aware, life is full of unexpected twists and turns. But whatever happens in our work and social life, health remains a priority. Several individuals still rely on national health services to provide treatment and care in times of hardship, however more and more people are seeking private cover and protection.
Our mission is to bring healthcare of international standards
within the reach of every individual. We are committed to the
achievement and maintenance of excellence in education, research
and healthcare for the benefit of humanity.
Papworth partnershipIn June 2013, ABH signed a partnership agreement with the
world-famous Papworth Hospital in London to enhance specialist
cardiac services and educate key clinical staff.
We are proud to be associated with Papworth Hospital, which is
truly a leader in cardiothoracic surgery and cardiology, but is also the
UKs main heart and lung transplant centre, notes David Gray, deputy
chairman of Apollo Bramwell Hospital.
Apollo Bramwell will greatly benefit from the support of Papworth
Hospital, which will include the potential for having surgeons and
cardiologists performing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures at
Every year, Papworth treats over 22,800 inpatients and 53,400
outpatients requiring specialist heart and lung treatment from the
UKs largest cardiothoracic hospital. Apollo Bramwell hopes to gain
invaluable insights from the Cambridge-based hospital, which has
proud to announce the launch of a full-service orthotic and prosthetic
facility. The new department aims to offer renewed hope, greater
mobility and a better quality of life for amputees that have lost a limb
as a result of disease or an accident.
Diabetes is a common reason why Mauritians lose a limb and
need to use a prosthesis, David reveals. This service will therefore
offer a special prosthetic program to fit the individual needs of each
patient. We provide amputees with mobility, comfort and an improved
self-image thanks to the latest designs available in prosthetic limbs.
Along with expert guidance and support to help choose the
right prosthesis that best suits their needs, patients will also benefit
from careful monitoring, as long-term care is required for devices to
accurately fit and function correctly.
David explains: Due to technological advances prosthetic
components are continually changing, which can make the decision-
making process confusing.
While we utilise modern technology, it is important to
understand that the latest and greatest appliance is not always the
most appropriate for every patient. Our policy is to provide the most
appropriate device, matching the patients lifestyle in the most cost-
The department at ABH
has been established alongside
Marissa Nel & Associates,
a specialised orthotic and
prosthetic facility in South
Africa, and Ottobock, a German
organisation that produces
prostheses, braces and orthoses.
Accreditation, quality and certification
ABH has now joined an elite
and exclusive circle as one of
only 385 hospitals in the world
to win the Joint Commission
International (JCI) gold
accreditation. With over 350
stringent guidelines, covering
surgical hygiene, anaesthesia

Despite this industry recognition, ABH still employs a quality
management system to produce results that meet and exceed
stakeholder and public expectations.
By reinforcing the goals and objectives of patient care, quality
is not only an additional step of control or inspection, but an integral
part of our daily practices and work for every employee throughout
the hospital, notes ABH.
The hospital is continuously exploring ways of improving the
quality of healthcare through the latest evidence-based medicine,
audits of services, integrated care pathways, indicator measurements,
voice of customers, customer satisfaction including complaints/
incidents and other standardisation frameworks.
ABH promotes a proactive culture that encourages patients to be
involved in the decision making process and to ask questions at every
point of their treatment.
From the time the patient steps in the hospital till the discharge
journey, quality standards are applied and respected to cater for best
quality of healthcare that the patient experiences, asserts ABH.
Ultimately, ABH is a world-class facility that acknowledges how
significant health is in todays modern society. Any patient visiting
Mauritius can rest assured that they are in the best hands possible.
While we utilise modern technology, it is important to understand that the latest and greatest appliance is not always the most appropriate for every patient. Our policy is to provide the most appropriate device, matching the patients lifestyle in the most cost-effective manner.
