Fortis Hospitals are highly acclaimed group of hospitals with branches almost in every big and small cities in India. They have opened a new branch at Kangra (17 kms from here) whose inauguration was done by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
On the 19th four specialist doctors, a gynecologist, a cardiologist, an orthopedist and a specialist on medicine attended the camp providing free medical check up to the public in and around McLeod Ganj. Though the day coincided with the beginning of holy month for the Tibetans when many attend prayer at the temple of His Holiness, many still took the opportunity to get themselves checked and seek medical advice.
The camp started at 10 a.m. and closed at 02 p.m. as the doctors had to attend to patients in their hospitals. Within 4 hours, more than 120 people turned up for the checkup.
The home nurses of Tibet Charity helped in translating for those who don’t speak Hindi or English.
We thank the administration and the doctors of Fortis Hospital for kindly sparing time to conduct the medical in spite of their highly busy schedule.
