Founder and Chairman of Metropolis Healthcare Ltd and someone who is essentially a humanitarian, Dr Sushil Shah is a beautiful combination of a person who has the heart of a Doctor and the mind of an Entrepreneur. After graduating from the school in 1964, young Sushil completed his MD in Pathology and Bacteriology from Grant Medical College, Mumbai. He was also a Research Fellow of Cornell Medical Centre, New York.
Metropolis is not only highly sophisticated laboratory but also one of the first to introduce Radio Immunoassay technique (a branch of nuclear medicine) in India for the test of Malignancy, Infertility and Pregnancy problems etc. It has earned the reputation of India’s leading and only multinational chain of diagnostic centers spread across the globe.
However, in addition to his professional excellence, what makes Dr. Shah truly worthy of this award is his philanthropic spirit. He has been conducting health check-up camps for Mumbai Traffic Police, awareness camps for police women on cervical cancer, free camps for over 600 girls belonging to ‘Kishori Foundation’ based in Mumbai and under-privileged children of ‘Future Hope’, an NGO based in Kolkata for several years now.
His deep commitment to social service has earned him several honours and awards including the Rashtriya Chikitsak Ratna Award by NEHRD Organization, Mumbai, Rajiv Gandhi Gold Medal Award by GEPRA, Tamil Nadu and Prominent Alumnus Award by Jai Hindi College, Mumbai.
Dr. Shah comes across as a fine example of true Scindian values i.e. a spirit of enterprise and sound intellect, infused with conviction and a sense of service. His life is an incredible timeline of these attributes, spread across all endeavours of his life.
The Scindia School confers on Dr Sushil Shah the Madhav Award as an Old Boy of Eminence for the year 2016 for his exemplary business acumen coupled with deep commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and for his outstanding contribution in the medical field.
