Commenting on the occasion, Murali Yadama, Managing Director of MYK LATICRETE, said “We are happy to be launching a world-class ICU facility in our city. Realising the challenges of the needy unable to afford healthcare support and aid from corporate hospitals led us to take swift action to join hands with the NGOs coalition with a mission to bring access to ICU facilities for all. Having touched many lives through our CSR efforts in the Education field, today we are happy to expand our social initiatives to the healthcare space as well. It gives us a sense of fulfilment to bring a world-class healthcare facility to a hospital like Durgabai Deshmukh Hospital & Research Centre, which has best-in-class medical professionals with charitable intentions.”
