This violates medical ethics while treating patients. Father Muller Hospital is serving patients since many years with quality service. We have been following medical ethics. Patients come to our hospital not only from neighboring districts but also from faraway places in north Karnataka. One must follow certain ethics in service sector. There are lots of difficulties while running a hospital and the administration is always under pressure. Even then, physicians must work in stable mind set and need to tackle things carefully.”

Most Rev. Dr Gerald Isaac Lobo address the gathering and said, “The main vision of Jesus was to serve the poor and depressed and cure sickness. He dedicated his entire life to serve poor people. Christian community is service oriented by nature and has contributed more to the service sector. There is a vast role played by Christian people in serving the society or treating patients. Let us follow the path of Jesus Christ and adopt his thoughts in our lives.”
