In 2005, Ziqitza Health Care Limited was founded by Shaffi Mather, Manish Sacheti, Ravi Krishna, Naresh Jain, Sweta Mangal - a group of young professionals - as a result of personal experiences.
The founders realised that the difference in EMS service in India and US was the availability and accessibility of standardized emergency medical services providers. Ziqitza recognised the need of organised and professional ambulance providers in the country, and thus began the journey to create the best emergency response service in India that would be on par with 911 in the U.S. and 999 in the U.K. We realised the urgency of an organised and networked ambulance service required for saving those lives that would have been otherwise lost, for want of timely medical attention
ZHL’s vision is to assist in saving human lives by providing a leading network of fully equipped Advanced and Basic Life Support Ambulances across the developing world.
Our vision is reflected in our commitment to meet International standards of quality in Emergency Medical Services and be accessible to everyone regardless of their income bracket.
Our core values are being ethical, being transparent and fostering teamwork. Ziqitza's focus has always been on delivering top quality services that involve saving lives, minimising anguish and aiding in improving the patient’s outcome.
For us every life matters and every second counts in saving a life. We believe that countless lives can be saved and numerous casualties minimized, with adequate and quick medical transportation facilities
