AyurVAID recognised ‘for being a symbol of excellence’ in ‘Specialised Hospitals-Ayurveda‘ category based on a formal market survey commissioned by ET covering a sample of 9,270 persons from 6 Metros and 11 Mini Metros cities of India.
Key Survey Parameters included:

- Product Portfolio
- Consumer Satisfaction
AyurVAID honoured to be the only Ayurveda Hospital to figure in a national pantheon of select Allopathy hospital giants as ‘Specialised Hospitals – Ayurveda’ and that too in the very 1st edition of the ET Awards for Best Healthcare Brands (ETHealthcare, ET Best Brands). 5 Multi-specialty hospitals and 4 Specialised hospitals (including AyurVAID) were recognised in the 2 Hospitals categories for the Awards. From the extended Ayurveda sector, Dabur and Himalaya were recognised in the Consumer Health Products category, and Sri Sri Ayurveda in the Health and Wellness category.
The Hon. Health Minister, in addition to other dignitaries on stage, in the few moments available, was extremely curious to know of the work that we do and the locations that AyurVAID is present and has promised (without prompting) to visit AyurVAID on one of his upcoming visits to Bangalore. The AyurVAID team keenly looks forward to receiving Shri JP Nadda and his colleagues from the Ministry of Health & FW at AyurVAID.
This momentous milestone for AyurVAID and for the Ayurveda sector would not have been possible without the good wishes of our patients and their families & friends who over the last 11 years have seen the dedicated and sincere efforts of all AyurVAIDans to do their very best to enhance whole person health and wellbeing through rigorous, protocols and quality systems driven Ayurveda chikitsa, while simultaneously empowering our patients and their families, and by upholding trust at all times ( i.e., AyurVAID’s WHY or Core Purpose). As very AyurVAIDan says a big thank you, we are reminded of John F Kennedy’s words “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them”. AyurVAIDans intend to live by these words.
