Hospitals should strive to maintain a human face amidst modernisation and advancements. It is a doctor, who, while rendering care, helps a hospital win confidence and trust of millions of patients, said Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar after unveiling the foundation stone of the proposed 11-storey centenary building of KEM Hospital here on Sunday. The hospital completed its centenary this year on October 4.
Drawing attention to the Union government’s special programmes to financially support the institutions which have completed hundred years in service, Pawar said, “The Union government makes special budgetary provisions to support institutes that have completed hundred years. College of Agriculture in Pune received the financial support in the past and I am confident that the KEM Hospital deserves to avail the benefit of this scheme in all respects. The Union and state governments can help the KEM Hospital to realise its future projects.”
