Global Hospital, Parel, Mumbai released a short film ‘Khayaal’ on the occasion of World Health Day, 2019 celebrated on April 7th every year. The short film is dedicated to the tireless services medicos provide in emergency and critical condition.
The theme of this year’s World Health Day is Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere. A short film release is an initiative of Global Hospital to Inspire the citizens to repose their trust and believe in Hospitals care.
Indian healthcare has undergone a sea of change in the recent decade with an increase in infrastructure and availability of super-specialities in Tertiary care Hospitals. Through his film ‘Khayal’, Global Hospital wants to highlight that comprehensive quality healthcare services should be accessible to all without any discrimination and applauds the services Tertiary care Hospitals provide.
The film was shot in the Hospital and showcased the Hospital’s commitment to the overall health and well-being of the society.
Dr. Bharat Shah, Director- IRS, Global Hospital, Parel, said, “A lot of medical problems today results from poor lifestyle. These are called lifestyle diseases, and they can be completely prevented by avoiding junk 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.
Today we have seen more than 300 people came together to support the initiative, by taking a pledge for good health through placing a colourful hand-print mark on board.”
Commenting on the world health day 2019, 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 incidents 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 selfless service provided by them across the world must be viewed in 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 the first aid, get the preliminary investigation done and start the treatment as soon as possible.
