Pharmacists: Unsung heroes in healthcare world honoured

For the first time in the hospital’s history, Holy Family has dedicated and reserved 14 days to laud the efforts of its pharmacists.

Acknowledging the efforts of the pharmacists, one of Delhi’s prominent healthcare providers, Holy Family Hospital announced that they will dedicate the ongoing and the following week to the in-house pharmacists.

Known as a support system for thousands of doctors across the country, pharmacists play a key role in shaping the medical institution and industry.

With this decision, the hospital also plans to honour those pharmacists who have been associated with the hospital in its endeavor of promoting healthcare. The in-house event, with the theme “Your Pharmacist, Your Medical Expert” will aim at promoting fostering good health.

In order to sensitise the people about the safe medical practices, Holy Family Hospital also handed out pamphlets that highlighted the Do’s and Don’ts for living a healthy life. Around 5,000 patients, who were present at the first day of the event on September 25 were told the importance of right dietary patterns and how it helps to keep diseases at bay; in the longer run.

Unni Nair, PRO, Holy Family Hospital, said: “Pharmacists are the unsung heroes in the healthcare world. With an event that has been spanned for a period of 14 days, we aim at bringing all doctors, pharmacists, and patients under one roof to initiate a healthy dialogue that will be helpful in understanding each other.”

Speaking about the initiative, Jose Mathai, Head Pharmacist, Holy Family Hospital, said: “After having served the hospital and the patients for more than a decade, this is the first time that we have ventured into promoting the importance of pharmacists. While this is a small step for a greater cause, we at the institution believe that pharmacists play a key role in ensuring every patient who walks out of Holy Family Hospital is empowered to live a healthier life.”

Staying true to its core DNA of providing affordable and quality healthcare to people, Holy Family Hospital continues to tread along the path of promoting healthy living.
