September 22, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: Doctors of JSS Hospital who were on duty serving the affected patients during COVID-19 crisis, right from the outbreak of the pandemic last year till recently, were felicitated at a programme organised in the Hospital’s Sri Rajendra Mahaswamiji Centenary Hall here on Saturday.

Suttur Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji, who graced the occasion, said that it is a matter of pride that doctors and other supporting medical staff, who were on the frontline of duty during the COVID crisis, are being felicitated in recognition of their service.

Pointing out that patients calling doctors as Gods for saving their life is the real moment for doctors more than anything else, the Seer said that due to sustained efforts by all concerned medical and health staff, the pandemic is fast subsiding in the country, when even advanced countries like America continue to reel under the effects of the global pandemic.

Highlighting how a small health centre set up by Sri Rajendra Swamji grew into a big hospital (JSS Hospital) with all medical infrastructure, the Seer said that the co-operation of everyone was behind the success.
