Hyderabad, January 15: Governor Ekkadu Srinivasa Lakshmi Narasimhan today exhorted the corporate hospitals to have social responsibility to offer better health services to poor and middle class people in the rural areas.
Participating in a program at LV Prasad Eye Institute here on the occasion of its world record of performing 20,000 cornea change operations successfully, the Governor asked the corporate hospitals to create awareness among people about pledging eyes to give light and life to unfortunate people.
Expressing concern on poor health services in the rural areas, the Governor asked the corporate hospitals to have sympathy towards the poor and middle class people.
