Global Hospital Releases Short Film â€˜Khayaalâ€™ On World Health Day
Global Hospital, Parel, Mumbai released a short film ‘Khayaal’ on the occasion of World Health Day, 2019 celebrated on April 7th every year. The theme of this year’s World Health Day is Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere. The short video release is an initiative of Global Hospital to inspire the citizens to repose their trust and believe in Hospital care. It is dedicated to the tireless services that medicos provide, in emergency and critical condition. More than 300 people came together and supported the initiative by taking a pledge for good health through placing a colourful hand print on the board.
Indian healthcare has undergone a sea change in the recent decade, with an increase in infrastructure and availability of super-specialties in Tertiary Care Hospitals. Through the film ‘Khayal’, Global Hospital wants to highlight that comprehensive quality healthcare services should be accessible to all without any kind of discrimination, and applauds the services that Tertiary Care Hospitals provide. The film was shot in the Hospital and showcases the Hospital’s commitment to the overall health and wellbeing of society.
Dr. Bharat Shah, Director-IRS, Global Hospital Parel, said, “A lot of medical problems today result from poor lifestyle. These are called lifestyle diseases and they can be completely prevented by avoiding junk food and doing regular exercise. Today there is a high incidence and prevalence of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. This can be prevented and controlled. That is what Global Hospital strives for.”
Commenting on World Health Day, Dr. Vivek Talaulikar, Chief Executive Officer of Global Hospital Parel, said, “Tertiary Hospitals are important stakeholders in the Indian Healthcare Ecosystem. And through this short film, ‘Khayaal’ we want to inspire the citizens to repose their trust and believe in Hospitals, given the incidence of increased violence against doctors in India. We strongly feel that the tireless and exceptional care provided by the medical community without any discrimination should be acknowledged by all of us, and the selfless service provided by them across the world must be viewed in a good light.”
Dr. Ajit Baviskar, Head of Emergency, Global Hospital Parel, stated, “Emergencies can be frightening, and during those times, our very first attempt is to save the life of the patient and attend to his/her needs immediately. Our attention and speed are to deliver first aid, get the preliminary investigation done and start the treatment as soon as possible. We do all of this without any discrimination of caste, creed or religion of the patient. Patient’s trust and belief in the Hospitals and in us is our only strength to deliver qualitative outcomes in emergencies.”
