Jan 27 : Father Muller Medical College Hospital (FMMCH), Kankanady, Mangaluru was Honoured for Achievements in implementing Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka Scheme. The honour was presented during the 72nd Republic Day celebrations held at Nehru Maidan, Mangaluru on 26 January 2021, by District Minister-In-Charge Kota Srinivas Poojary. Dr Uday Kumar-Medical Superintendent, FMMCH accepted the honour on behalf of the hospital.

Being in the health care service since 1880, Father Muller Hospital has a rich heritage which is seen in its vast experience in the field of medicine and gives it the reputation of an institution that combines a caring heart with highly professional skills. The National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) has accredited microbiology, biochemistry and pathology clinical laboratories of the Hospital. It is the first medical institution in the district which has all the three laboratories accredited by NABL guaranteeing quality of service.

Father Muller Charitable Institutions are registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860 with SI. No. 1 of 1960. The institution lays a strong focus to provide cutting edge services with a strong foundation of medical education and research, reaching out to towering heights of expertise in health care comparable to the best in India. To put it in a nutshell, ‘The institution has rendered more than a century of service to humanity with dedication, trust, excellence and nobility for non-profit’.

And now, Father Muller Medical College Hospital has added another feather to its cap, where the hospital was honoured during the 72nd Republic Day celebrations, for their achievements in implementing the Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka (AB-ArK) scheme in the district.

The Administrator of FMMCH, Rev Fr Rudolph Ravi D’sa said, “I am extremely pleased to state that the Hospital is not only one of the largest Healthcare Service provider in Mangaluru but also the largest to provide quality health care services at affordable and subsidized rates and 840 beds are reserved free of cost for the poor and marginalized members of the society. Its recognition for quality care in spite of its charitable nature has been acknowledged through NABH & NABL Accreditation Boards certifying that the highest quality standards are followed and prompt care is given to every patient who enters the portals of the Hospital”.

“The Management prides itself on having a good team, satisfied and happy patients, latest automation, and the finest Doctors, Nurses, Technical and Administrative Staff who observe the best practices, update themselves from time to time in the latest technology and medical know-how. The fact that the Hospital conducts training sessions every month at our highly sophisticated Simulation Centre is also a testimony to the fact that the Management stresses on following the evidence-based interdisciplinary approach in the medical field and in keeping in line with its goal ‘better patient satisfaction and maximum patient safety at every level’. This honour given to us on the 72nd Republic day celebration for our achievements in implementing the Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka (AB-ArK) scheme in the district, is an added credit for all the good work and service we provide in the healthcare field”.

The director FMCI Rev. Fr Richard Aloysius Coelho conveyed his message saying, “I take great pride in announcing that our hospital, Father Muller Medical College Hospital, has been honoured for Achievements in implementing Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka Scheme during the 72nd Republic Day celebrations held at Nehru Maidan, Mangaluru on 26 January 2021, by District Minister-In-Charge Kota Srinivas Poojary.

My sincere gratitude to the Administrator FMMCH, Medical Superintendent, Dy Medical Superintendent, frontline COVID warriors of our hospital – doctors, nurses, paramedics, staff, postgraduates and interns and the credit department for their selfless service during the onset and peak of the pandemic.

This recognition is for the untiring dedicated service that the whole hospital puts in to treat those who suffer. To be recognised at this level is worth the toils and scare that we have gone through.

It indeed brings a sense of belonging to us, that our working together only strengthens our commitment to ‘Heal and Comfort’.

Without names being written, I wholeheartedly thank our District COVID-19 Management Committee for recognising us for our service rendered and the Government for their Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka Scheme to help the public without distinction.”
