Sir Ganga Ram Hospital celebrates 64th Founder's Day

Sir Ganga Ram Hospital celebrates 64th Founder's Day

New Delhi, Apr 13 (UNI) Sir Ganga Ram Trust Society, Board of Management, Consultants and Staff of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) on Saturday celebrated its 64th Founder's Day.

On this occasion Anil Baijal, Lieutenant Governor was the Chief Guest. The celebrations started by garlanding the statue of Sir Ganga Ram.

Mr Baijal distributed meritorious and long service awards to staff and doctors of the hospital.

A cultural programme was presented by students of School of Nursing.

Speaking on the occasion, Ashok Chandra, Chairman, Sir Ganga Ram Trust society said,'I am proud to say that our hospital apart from producing talented faculty for its own use , is also a nursery for providing talented doctors for delivering health care services across the country.'

Mr Baijal said, 'With changing times, there is a paradigm shift in doctor and patient relationship. Trust between the two has gone down and needs to restored. Today patients are well informed and impatient. Empathy from medical professionals by saying a kind word or pat on shoulder will go a long way in restoring the trust.'

Mr Baijal speaking on increasing stress levels on doctors said, 'Today’s doctors, I find are full of stress due to patient centric pressures. Even on weekends when professionals from other fields are relaxing, doctors are busy in conferences. Doctors should de-stress themselves to charge themselves.'

On a concern raised by Dr D S Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) SGRH, about closing down of 63 years old Nursing School due to lack of space, Mr Baijal assured all help possible in allotment of land.

'There is need for brown field projects to overcome lack of space in Delhi,' he said.

Reading the Annual Hospital Report, Dr Rana said,'During the last financial year, 57,000 patients availed our emergency services. In addition to this, the hospital admitted 97,608 patients in the hospital, out of which 7,460 were from economically weaker sections of the society who were treated free of cost. About 31,648 surgeries were conducted during the year. The hospital spent about Rs 75.84 crore on various charitable activities during the last financial year which is nearly 10 per cent more than the previous year.'

Elaborating about the unique working of SGRH, Dr Rana said,'We are very particular in selecting talented consultants at junior level. We also provide lively and vibrant environment for the growth of young consultants and these consultants attain eminence in their respective fields by the time they occupy senior positions. However at the same time we continue lateral entry of eminent consultants from India and abroad.'

'Unique doctor friendly and family atmosphere by the Board of Management consisting of eminent consultants provides the atmosphere of stability. For good doctors at tertiary care hospital , apart from state of art infrastructure for delivery of health care, academics and research are also very important components. SGRH is well known in non-government sector for having excellence both in academics as well as research. I am proud to say that our hospital apart from producing talented faculty for its own use, is also a nursery for providing talented doctors for delivering health care services across the country,' Dr Rana said.
