Hyderabad: Himachal Pradesh Governor Bandaru Dattatreya has lamented that health care services, in present times, have become a commercial business. He said it was unfortunate that health services are being looked at as a commodity that can be purchased.
The medical education must impart human values so that the health care professionals work with compassion, patience and understand the health needs of patients before giving the best treatments to them.
Dattatreya was the chief guest at the Distribution of Gold Medals and Merit Certificates to MBBS Students at ESIC Medical College at Sanathnagar on Friday.
Dattatreya stated that ESI Medical College started functioning from 2016. Within a period of just three years, the institute has made extraordinary achievements in patient care, academics and teaching, research etc, he pointed out.
Governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan, who also graced the occasion, pointed out that ESI hospital in Sanathnagar saw a big development courtesy of Bandaru Dattatreya's initiatives during his stint as Union Minister of State for Labour earlier.
She pointed out that Centre took various initiatives to improve ESI hospitals and medical education in the last few years.
