Description/achievement of initiative

LifeSpring Hospitals of India is an expanding chain of maternity hospitals that provides high quality health care to lower-income women and children in India. By using a market-based approach, LifeSpring fills the void of high quality maternal and child health care at affordable rates for India's low-income population. LifeSpring's unique existence and expanding operations is demonstrative of the true potential of private sector solutions to dire public health needs perhaps most powerfully in the area of maternal health and childhood vaccinations. Both of these areas are exactly and exclusively what LifeSpring Hospitals has focused on since their first hospital in 2005. Since then, LifeSpring has expanded to 12 other hospitals in India safely and successfully delivering over 11,000 babies and serving over 150,000 customers all of whom come from poor, urban, areas of India. LifeSpring Hospital commits to expanding their maternal health hospital network to 100 new facilities between 2011 and 2015 in 7 cities in India, aiming to reach out to 60 million people and delivering more than 100,000 babies. LifeSpring Hospitals is a member of UNDP's Business Call to Action.
