St. Philomena's Hospital | Multi-Specialty Hospital in Bangalore | News & Updates

         National Doctors’ Day is celebrated on July 1st every year in India for the past 32 years (since 1991), honouring the legendary and renowned doctor Bidhan Chandra Roy, a politician, a freedom fighter, and an advocate for education.

         Doctors are the soldiers of the country, those who don’t fight at borders but dedicatedly work to save lives and improve life expectancy while putting their lives at risk. Their contribution towards human health is beyond expectations. They are always the first to respond to any pandemic situation such as COVID-19, Disease X, Plague, Flu, AIDS, Ebola, and others to protect the general populace.

         This year, St. Philomena’s Hospital celebrated “Doctors Day” in a unique way by honouring and felicitating some of the unsung heroes from the medical profession who have been silently contributing their mite for the patient. Our hospital also took part at the national level, participating with the National Doctors Day theme that is “Healing Hands, Caring Hearts." The theme emphasizes the dedication and compassion doctors bring to their practice daily and the critical role they play in saving lakhs of lives throughout their lifetime. Indeed, it was a great day for our “Doctors.”
