An essential component of our corporate social responsibility is to care for the community. We endeavour to make a positive contribution to the underprivileged communities by supporting a wide range of socio-economic, educational and health initiatives.
Health has been identified as a primary objective in the community development process. As a part of the healthcare initiatives we facilitate monthly free heart check up clinics, counseling sessions, health awareness programs, health camps to promote general health with emphasis on heart care and well-being in the community, in and around Kolkata and also across eastern India. As a mark of serving the society, our doctors are also regularly organizing free Sunday clinic in the hospital for the needy and the underprivileged. As part of society health awareness program, our hospital has been organizing CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) training, which is a basic cardiac life support training, in different organizations like Kolkata police.
