Holy Family Hospital (Bandra West) on Saturday, April 15, paid tribute to Covid-19 Warriors by unveiling an art installation centred around 'Hope & Care' in the presence of His Eminence Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay.
Others present on the occasion were Sr Vandana, Superior General, Congregation of UMI; Mrs Genelia Deshmukh, Bollywood actress; Vinayak Vispute, additonal Municipal commissioner; Harish Shah, founding member of Harish & Bina Shah Foundation and Dr (Sr) Beena, executive director, Holy Family Hospital.
A press release stated, "The theme of the art installation is 'Hope and Care' which have been the vital factors which sustained us to sail through the pandemic. 'Hope' has played a crucial role in instilling resilience and optimism in people and 'Care has been vital in ensuring the safety of patients, healthcare workers and the community at large. These two elements, hope and care, have collectively guided us through the pandemic's difficulties and have made us emerge stronger on the other side."
Holy Family Hospital was the first to partner with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to run a Covid Care Isolation Centre at Khar, Mumbai during the outbreak of the pandemic, entirely free of cost.
The hospital went on to become the largest non-governmental Covid Care Hospital in Mumbai with a peak time capacity of more than 170 Covid bed strength, including 28 intensive care unit beds.
As the country navigated through a pandemic, doctors, nurses and support service staff cemented their position as the foremost champions to keep people safe during these difficult times, the release added.
