Kolkata, June 27:--  Apollo Hospitals, a multi-specialty chain of hospitals, on Tuesday announced the extension of its air ambulance services network to several smaller cities and towns like Madurai, Mysore, Kakinada, Karaikudi, Karur, Trichy and Vizag through its current hubs in Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore.


Several people in India don’t get medical attention within the golden hour which is very crucial in saving lives.


 Apollo’s air ambulance service will address the emergency medical need of people who are on the outskirts and far from the city limits.


Each of the Apollo air ambulances will be manned by a full-fledged medical crew trained in critical pre-hospital care protocols to address emergency victims and critically-ill patients. The launch is in partnership with Bengaluru-based Air Aviators Rescue who will provide helicopters and the logistics support to Apollo Hospitals.
