As the Managing Director, Zahabiya has transformed Wockhardt hospitals into an entity that stands for patient safety and quality care. She sets very high standards on both these parameters and personally monitors quality standards. Her passion for healthcare and ‘no compromise’ approach has enabled Wockhardt hospitals to set benchmarks in clinical outcomes. Under her leadership, Wockhardt Hospitals has set up two large hospitals in Mumbai last year. The `New Age’ Wockhardt Hospital in South Mumbai has become the epitome of Patient care, Technology and Skills in a very short time.

Expressing her happiness over the wins, Zahabiya Khorakiwala said, “I thank the organizers and the jury for presenting me with this prestigious award. WOW- Women of Wonder award means a lot in itself. No doubt women are born to do wonders, and they do wonders in their day to day life as well. Today a woman is known for being independent - standing for herself, her family and her workplace; she is one power that reflects perseverance, devotion and strength. All women should be proud of who they are and how they touch so many lives in different ways. Through this award, I wish to encourage other women to chase their dreams boldly, stay unbounded and gain higher achievements
