Kishore Kumar,

Chairman

Dr. R. Kishore Kumar founded Cloudnine in 2007 to realize his vision of high quality healthcare in India, on par with international standards. He saw a lot of deaths during his training in India, but hardly saw any deaths during his 16 year tenure in the developed world. There also saw what the “intact” survival of a premature baby means to the parents. Hence he had this dream of providing similar care in India, and is committed to his passion for scaling new heights in neonatology. He pioneered this concept of maternal healthcare in India with Cloudnine – a facility dedicated to providing exclusive and comprehensive services in maternal and child care. As the Founding Chairman, Managing Director and senior neonatologist, he has been instrumental in securing the pinnacle attained by Cloudnine today.

Dr. Kishore is an internationally acclaimed neonatologist who has worked in four continents over the course of his career – covering North America, UK, Asia and 12 years in Australia. He completed his MBBS from Gulbarga University and his DCH from Mysore University and London. He also has an MD with a gold medal from Mysore University, MRCP (Paed) & FRCPCH from UK as well as MRCPI (Paed) and FRCPI from Ireland. He has also completed his Fellowship in Neonatal ICU with an FRACP from Melbourne, Australia. At the time of his qualification, he was amongst one of the youngest and highest qualified neonatologists in the world. To his credit, he has worked only in teaching hospitals around the world. Among his many awards and accreditations is the honour of being felicitated by former US President Bill Clinton for his exceptional achievements in the field of neonatology.

At Purple Haze, Rohit improved operations, introduced technology for systems improvement and went on to help setup three more Purple Haze outlets in Bangalore. Rohit cofounded Cloudnine in 2006 and expanded operations from a single hospital in South Bangalore to other locations in Bangalore and now a multicity-chain in Chennai, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Pune with more than 12 units and with the ambition to setup 10 more of the mother and child units in the coming years.

This was possible through his business acumen, passion and commitment to the disruptive business model. He has led and managed the entire gambit of professionalizing the company and attracting top talents who form the core team of Cloudnine and also been responsible for leading the entire journey with private equity investors with the likes of Matrix Partners, Sequoia Capital and India Value fund having invested in to the company.
