Celebrating its continuous philanthropic efforts to make healthcare accessible to people from all sections of the society, the Wadia Hospitals chain has celebrated 90 years of excellence in paediatric and neo-natal care here.
“In the last 90 years though a lot has changed, one thing that has not and will never change is the philanthropy and the philosophy,” said Nusli Wadia, chairman at Mumbai’s Wadia Group, at a ceremony held in the city.
Wadia Group presented “My Stamp” to Maharashtra Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao as an imprint of its entire team on the millions of hearts who have been cared and nurtured by them.
Speaking at the event, state Education Minister Vinod Tawde said: “Wadia Hospital, for years, has been synonymous with excellent paediatric and neo-natal care, making healthcare accessible to people from every section of the society.”
Wadia Group entered healthcare with Nowrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital in 1926 and later, in 1928, opened Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children.
Today, both hospitals provide more than 50 specialties and provide excellent services to women and children all under one roof.
“Our hospitals which are well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities have managed to assist millions of patients in the last nine decades. It’s the trust that the hospitals have built over the years which brings in patients from almost every corner of the country,” noted Dr Minnie Bodhanwala, CEO of Wadia Hospitals.
“This is a major milestone in the history of Wadia Hospitals and a testimony of the fact that no contribution is big or small; it’s the effort and the intention that matters,” Ness Wadia, managind director, Wadia Group, pointed out.
