Kudos To Dr. Persis Doodhwala

In the recent ‘Swachhata Sarvekshan Survey’ conducted by the Surat Municipal Corporation across all zones of Surat, the ‘Kadiwala Maternity Home and Urban Health Centre’, ably managed by Dr. Persis Homi (Mevawala) Doodhwala, bagged the prestigious ‘Sawachhata Sarvekshan Award – 2020’, in the central zone of Surat, alongside two other private hospitals. What makes winning this award commendable is that this maternity home is a corporation run hospital, as compared to the other recipients of the award which are private hospitals. In fact, Kadiwala Maternity Home had bagged the ‘Clean Hospital’ award in the previous year as well!

Having completed her schooling and MBBS from Jamshedpur, Dr. Persis topped her post-graduation in Obstetric and Gynecology from GMCS, Surat. She has participated in numerous national Health programs on behalf of Surat Municipal Corporation and is known for her long-standing practice in successfully treating patients with sterility.

A Corona warrior, she herself got infected with this virus but rejoined her duty on recovery. Her remarkable dedication during the pandemic saw the Surat Municipal Corporation honouring her with an extension post her retirement, where she continues to treat patients.

Dr. Persis is married to senior surgeon in Surat, Dr. Homi Doodhwala, who pioneered a corporation medical college in 2000 and currently serves as a Trustee of the Surat Parsi Panchayat. She has two sons – Sarosh who is a commercial pilot and instructor and Dr. Cyrus, who works as RMO in one of Surat’s leading hospitals.

Here’s congratulating Dr. Persis on her good work, which brings pride to our community!
