Award for HRIDYAM
Hridyam is a Govt. of Kerala initiative for comprehensive management of children with congenital heart diseases born in Kerala. This serves as an excellent example of a public-private partnership where Govt. of Kerala has expanded 4 private hospitals in the state along with 2 government institutions for the implementation of the program.
BCMCH has been a partner in this initiative from its inception in September 2017. We have already done about 100 cardiac surgeries and interventions in children under this program which is completely free to the beneficiaries. In recognition of this work, the Honorable Minister for Health, Smt. K.K.Shylaja awarded this plaque to BCMCH on February 25. In a function held to inaugurate First International Child Health Summit- Kerala 2019, Dr. R. Suresh Kumar, Chief of Pediatric Cardiology, received the memento on behalf of BCMCH.
