Dubai Happiness Agenda Inspires Canadian Specialist Hospital
Canadian Specialist Hospital has embarked on a new mission to promote and spread happiness within the hospital premises to ensure a productive working environment and promote a positive vibe for its patients. As part of the initiative, the hospital will be organizing a ‘Smile Competition’ for a period of two weeks during which the hospital staff will participate by offering their genuine smiles in front of a camera. By the end of the second week, a jury will select three winners who will be presented with a prize and a certificate.
“We were inspired by the Dubai Happiness Agenda initiative adopted by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai and decided to run a campaign for the well-being of our patients and employees within the hospital. Our internal campaign is an initiative to promote the efforts of the Happiness Agenda and a positive environment. A happy and cheerful doctor can provide confidence and comfort to patients during complex treatments and help them heal faster”, said Dr. Yashar Ali, CEO, Canadian Specialist Hospital.
The hospital strongly believes in the importance of physical and mental health and has taken several initiatives to promote fitness and healthy lifestyle. Few months ago, the hospital took cue from the Dubai Fitness Challenge and held an internal fitness challenge to motivate their employees to engage in physical activity thereby improving their performance at work and eliminating stress.
The hospital also regularly appreciates their employees for their contribution and services. During the hospital’s annual party, the long-serving employees were presented with symbolic gold coins as souvenirs and soon the hospital will be inviting children who were born in Canadian Specialist Hospital during its first year of operations for a birthday party.
“As a healthcare institution, we believe that a happy community is a healthy one and we wish to spread as much happiness and good health as we can to contribute towards a smiling city”, concluded Dr. Yashar Ali.
