Ramnath Kovind, Governor of Bihar, said, on the occasion of Paras HMRI Hospital, Patna receiving the prestigious NABH certification: “We are thankful and honoured by the presence of robust private players who have been instrumental in providing the highest quality of medical service to the people of the state. They have not just integrated themselves with the people of the land, but have also ensured a village-to-village, a panchayat-to-panchyat connection to revolutionise the healthcare system of the state. I congratulate the enthusiastic team and dedicated staff of Paras Patna, for establishing yet again a landmark for the state and for many others healthcare providers to follow.”
Bihar is the third-highest populated state in the country with more than 1 billion people. The potential in terms of manpower, intellectual prowess and industrial strength is yet to be tapped. With ventures like these, the honourable governor felt, the development of Bihar is not a distant dream, but an immediate reality.
“For exceptional cancer care to cardiac services, along with state-of-the-art orthopaedic, neuro and trauma care, today we at Patna, Bihar, have access to the best quality services at our doorstep. The day is not far when people from other lands shall start considering us also as a viable option for medical tourism. Yes, we have the skill of the doctors of national and international repute, along with the energy to succeed and stand out, through our persistent and dedicated efforts.”
The National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH) is a national body set up under the Quality Council of India, to establish and operate accreditation programmes for healthcare organizations. The certification they provide covers all the aspects of hospital management such as disaster management, infection control practices, equipment maintenance, customer feedback, credential checking, employee satisfaction, amongst other areas. It has the support of all stakeholders: industry, consumers, government. It operates an autonomous unit.
“Let us envision a revolution with Patna being the epicentre of change. Patna shall provide the direction to millions to follow. It shall also be an example to follow, lead and envision the dream of Swasth Bharat. A healthy body ensures a healthy mind. A healthy mind ensures a robust life. A robust life will further ensure the development of the state towards prosperity and peace. Paras Patna under the able guidance of stalwarts such as Dr A Hai, Dr John Mukhopadhaya, Dr Pramod, have been able to provide the most integral aspect – Health and Support.”
The Governor went on to describe the nature of quality as an aspect that includes continuous effort, with the important components of persistence, continuous feedback, evolution, check, monitoring, and above all appreciation. “I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude and congratulations to the team of Paras Patna for being associating with the healthcare revolution of the state and lastly to all the important healthcare stakeholders, for making health an important subject for us.”
