Brand Fortis was established in 1996, by our Founder Chairman Late Dr. Parvinder Singh, who instituted it with the vision
'to create a world class integrated healthcare delivery system in India, entailing the finest medical skills combined with compassionate patient care.'
Fortis Healthcare is the country’s ‘fastest’ growing healthcare group. We have grown from first hospital at Mohali (Chandigarh) which opened in 2001 to over 55 facilities today. These include the world famous Escorts Heart Institute and the erstwhile Wockhardt facilities. From North to South, East to West, Fortis truly has India covered - the frontier city of Amritsar, to Ludhiana, Mohali, the National Capital region, Mumbai, Bangalore, Mysore, Chennai, Kolkata and many more destinations are all home to Fortis facilities.
Fortis occupies a place of pride in India’s healthcare delivery system.
Our Brand and the Logo
The Fortis brand with its distinctive logo is a synthesis of human values of trust, ethics and service and quality healthcare. We project clinical excellence, distinctive patient care, transparency in actions & high level of integrity and excellence is all that we do.
Our logo projects these very values. The integration of the hands (in a distinctive ‘green’ with a ‘red dot’) and the human figure is completely seamless and is representative of ‘Fortis’ responsive approach to healthcare. The green colour of hands is representative of health, wellbeing, compassion, nurturing and generosity while the red dot gives an immediate association to our Indian roots, while it is also represents energy, spirituality, courage and symbol of good luck.
At Fortis we intrinsically believe that excellence is a not a destination – but a journey.
