The winter is slipping away slowly and Chennai is gearing to welcome spring season. People from northern India, and abroad, laugh when Chennai folks talk about winter. It sure doesn't snow here and there is no need for a fireplace at home. Snow can be nice and enjoyable as a tourist, but is really painful if you must live with it.
brought his entire family from Bangladesh to have their health assessment done here, for he had heard about it from his friend who came here last month.
I also listened to the story of another middle aged man who already had a heart attack and was undergoing treatment down south, but wanted to have a second opinion of his health condition here because of the trust his friend had about our hospital.
I felt really proud to know that the good reputation of our hospital has spread so far just by word of mouth. Quality treatment provided and ethical practices followed here sincerely have given a good name to the hospital. Now, it is a healthy challenge for the staff at our hospital to uphold or better these standards. The smile of a patient healed of his illness is the biggest incentive to our physicians and nurses who ensure this noble profession really cares for humanity.
Welcome spring, welcome good health.
