In a an extremely thoughtful gesture coinciding with the Doctor’s Day, BGS-Global Hospitals has launched a comprehensive health check plan for its doctors and their families. “Such are the demands of their profession that doctors often discount their own healths in the service of their patients,” says Dr N Venkataramanaa, the brain behind the initiative. “The medical plan is our way of saying ‘thanks’ to all our doctors.”
The dichotomy is that for them to give their best to their patients, it is critical for doctors to stay in top physical, mental and emotional shape themselves. However, given the pressures of their work most medical professionals do not undergo periodic health checks and neglect their health. They do service their cars on time but not themselves.
Periodic health checks and health insurance is a norm in many professions but this is yet to percolate among doctors. In fact, there is no health care support for doctors and their families.
At BGS Global Hospitals all this is set to change. On the upcoming doctor’s day, that is July 1, this hospital will unveil a comprehensive health plan covering both doctors and their families. This is our special way to say ‘thanks’ to our doctors who always put their work ahead of themselves and their personal lives.
