A few items of media coverage on these events here.
‘Giving Hope & Celebrating Life‘ is our MOTTO !!!
Deepavali celebrates the victory of good over evil. It also marks transition from bad times to good times. For this little warrior, this is a very significant Diwali in the real sense. We had operated on him for cancer and he is now undergoing chemotherapy and celebrating Diwali in the hospital premises. He is a fiery spirit and tough to restrain. May God bless him with cure and a long life.

Honorable minister for Rural-Development, IT and Panchayatraj Sri Nara Lokesh, on 06-May, inaugurated our hospital’s ‘Screening on Wheels’, a mobile bus equipped with facilities to detect Cancer and other NCDs EARLY.
Minister was highly impressed with the variety and extent of screening equipment provided in the vehicle targeted specifically to provide access to rural areas which are least connected to modern health facilities.
Sri Lokesh has shown particular interest in tele-consultation facility (incidentally he also has an animated discussion with Dr Kalyan present in his Chamber at hospital through video).
The main focus areas of the Screening-vehicle are Technology and Rural-health. Both being very close to his heart and his ministries, Sri Lokesh was pretty impressed with and congratulated our hospital and MD Dr Murali Krishna Voonna for the initiative.
