The hospital encourages women to grow, supports their endeavors
Pune, 11th March 2019: International Women’s Day, a global phenomenon celebrated on the 8th of March every year honors the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This day commemorates the inspiring role of women around the world to secure women’s rights and build more equitable societies. Keeping this in mind, Pune’s Ruby Hall Clinic celebrated International Women’s Day with a gala of events attended by women from all departments of the hospital. This included inspiring speeches by women leaders of the hospital, dance and song performances and mimes amongst others. It was organized by Dr. Nita Munshi, Director – Laboratory and Quality, Ruby Hall Clinic; Ms. Shubhada Cruz, Head of Administration, Kamalnayan Bajaj Cancer Centre and Mrs. Surekha Joshi, Head – Department of Social Work, Ruby Hall Clinic.
Adopted by the UN in the year 1977, International Women’s Day is observed across the globe with special events dedicated to women. Every year a theme is picked for the day. This year, it is “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”. Across the globe, women were encouraged to put their hands out and strike the #BalanceforBetter pose and truly make a positive difference for women everywhere. The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. It emerged from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the 20th Century in North America and across Europe. Before the UN adopted this day as International Women’s Day, it was observed by socialist and communist countries. The day was initially celebrated as International Working Women’s Day.
Talking about this initiative, Dr. Nita Munshi, Director – Laboratory and Quality, Ruby Hall Clinic said, “As women, we are in the midst of a movement. Women are marching, campaigning, making the change, and moving forward. More than just being the backbone of the family, they’re taking strides and now becoming the backbone of so many organizations. What motivates me the most is when we receive support from those surrounding us — be it our partners, our children or even the people we work with. Working with Ruby Hall Clinic for the past two decades has made me realize that I’m not alone in my desire to see women empowered and work to their full potential. As with every year, today’s event marked the coming together of all our women, celebrating their unity, their strength and their passion.”
At Ruby Hall Clinic where quality is passion and precision is ambition, Dr. Nita Munshi is one of the many women leading from the front. She heads the all-women quality team at all three branches across the city. As one of the first hospitals to receive an NABH certification years ago, she has been instrumental in achieving the dreams that the founder Late Dr. K. B. Grant set forth. Over the years, Ruby Hall Clinic has also grown to become the only hospital to have received 9 accreditations and certifications from the Quality Council of India. Be it doctors, nurses, technologists, paramedics, administrators, and even support staff – each and every member supports this very mission.
Mr. Bomi Bhote, CEO, Ruby Hall Clinic commented, “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights. At Ruby Hall Clinic, we have always believed that hiring, promoting and encouraging women is the right thing to do, not just for society, but also for economic growth. We’ve seen women blossom, take up responsibilities and shine in their respective departments. This event marked an important milestone for Ruby Hall Clinic – the celebration of our team, the growth of our hospital and the empowerment of our women!”
