Chennai, Dec 9 (IBNS): Fortis Healthcare has extended itsaid to the victims of the recent torrential rains and flooding that has altered the landscape of Chennai in the past few weeks.
Fortis Malar Hospital, Adyar is conducting free outpatient screening in the disciplines of Dermatology, Paediatrics, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Orthopaedics. 
 
The screening camp has started onTuesday and will continue till Thursday at the hospital premises in Adyar. 
 
Anybody can walk-in and have a preliminary screening done for them in theses three days. The hospital will also provide prescribed medicines free of cost to the needy patients.

This initiative will particularly benefit the neighbourhoods of the hospital that are in the vicinity of the Adyar river, which flooded a major part of the city throwing normal life out of gear, and the Buckingham Canal that runs along Thiruvanmiyur, Indira Nagar and Gandhi Nagar areas. 
 
The devastating floods have also created conditions where the general public is exposed to the spread of various water borne diseases, as sewage water has mixed with rain water and has stagnated for weeks, apart from accidents caused due to severely damaged roads.

Apart from this, the hospitals are already conducting outreach camps at various areas in the city for the past few days. Wherein, the doctors along with their medical support team are visiting severely affected parts of the city, screening patients for diseases and providing medicines, free of cost then and there.

Fortis Arcot Road, Vadapalani will be conducting free medical camps for 3 days.
