He is a visionary with a creative and entrepreneurial mind, and a man with the Midas touch. His dreams go beyond being a doctor and has set up many multifaceted corporate businesses including educational institutions, a charitable trust and some leading financial services institutions.

A farsighted humanitarian
with a mission

While setting up an eye hospital, the first thing any entrepreneur would do is find a space that would be commercially viable. Instead, Dr. Ashley thought of building one in his own native, Kozhencherry, a small-town in Kerala. The Mulamoottil Eye Hospital founded by Dr. Ashley functions based on the singular goal of providing affordable quality treatment to every single person. It is one of the best in south India with the finest technologically advanced facilities providing world-class treatment, especially to the underprivileged. "My dream is fulfilled when the marginalized and the poor get outstanding treatment closer home, without having to travel to multispecialty hospitals in metro cities," says Dr. Ashley.
