In support of Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Mission, Fortis Hospital, Vashi, initiated a Cleanliness campaign, “Swachh Mumbai, Swastha Mumbai”, to create increased awareness that good health and cleanliness are closely related. The initiative was led by, Dr Bipin Chevale, Facility Director, Fortis Hospital, Vashi. Through this initiative, the hospital reinforced that quality healthcare delivery is best possible in a clean environment.
The initiative saw a participation of over 200 members of the hospital which included senior members of the management, Clinicians and Nursing staff along with representatives of International Human Rights Association (IHRA), who spread out in the surrounding areas of the hospital to send out a strong message of social consciousness and to emphasize on the responsibility of citizens in keeping the environment clean. The teams swept the surroundings and also spread awareness about cleanliness amongst auto rickshaw drivers, hawkers and pedestrians.
Dr Bipin Chevale, Facility Director, Fortis Hospital, Vashi, said, “Cleanliness and Hygiene are critical for good health at personal and societal levels. If not disposed in timely manner, garbage becomes breeding grounds for disease-carrying vectors, causing health problems amongst residents. As an institution that provides best-in-class health services, we have always been at the forefront to support causes of public health concern. Primary objective of the initiative was to dispose the garbage in a way that it does not lead to any public health concern. This initiative will be rolled-out across the neighboring suburbs as well”.
