Santy Sajan New COO of Aster Medcity Hospital

Destination-Kerala-Aster (6)

Kochi: Santy Sajan, General Manager, Whitefield branch of Columbia Asia, has joined as COO of Aster Medcity Hospital, a 670-bed quaternary care hospital here.

She would be reporting to Dr. Harish Pillai, CEO, Kerala region of Aster DM Healthcare.

Santy is replacing S Ramesh Kumar, who has joined HCG as the COO for Karnataka region.

She is one of the rare healthcare professionals who made a seamless transition from a nurse to a centre head. She started her career as a nurse at Mumbai’s PD Hinduja Hospital, and then went on to work in Saudi Arabia and Oman. While she was a nurse for 15-odd years, she always nurtured the dream of heading a hospital one day. And that dream became a reality when she joined Columbia Asia in December 2013 as the centre head of the newly-opened Whitefield branch, after completing her doctorate and MBA in Medicine in the US.
