As the cost of providing state of the art health care increases and public funding dwindles, how does one establish a state-of-the-art health care facility that is pragmatically and financially stable and/or sustainable? To meet this goal innovative methods of providing healthcare involving the private sector must be considered. L V Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI) was established in 1987, to realize its mission to achieve excellence, equity and efficiency in eye care. This paper looks into the entrepreneurial spirit of Dr Gullapalli Rao who founded L V Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI) and made it a driving force in the field of eye health and healthcare delivery.
