About the Organizers

Healthcare Excellence Awards 2023 is the outcome of the benevolent thought process of Asianet News and Ontario Heroes for the health workers in Canada. It is quite evident that during and post the COVID period, health workers played a great role by taking their profession ahead of all boundaries in love and compassion for society. To mark an imprint of this invaluable contribution of health workers in Canadian history, these two premier bodies of the industry plan to felicitate the “health keepers”. Let us know about the organizers comprehensively!

Asianet News

Among the plethora of news television networks in Kerala, Asianet News, the top Malayalam news channel, stands out as the most dependable source of news. It is one of the first television news networks in India. Furthermore, it has a big team of seasoned reporters and a vast network of news bureaus. Asianet News attracts viewers for its honest reporting and steadfast support of the rights of the oppressed and marginalized. This media house has continuously ranked at the top of TV rankings across all audience tiers owing to its reliance on and possession of cutting-edge technology and equipment. 

Asianet News holds a long and effective history of 27 years and keeps outperforming its rivals. Additionally, widespread circulation of its news is in 128 nations throughout the world. This highly influential media platform has made the decision to launch “The Healthcare Excellence Awards,” another honorable award, globally, in 2023. For many years to come, this will be the new dawn for honoring medical experts from all over the world. The United States, Kuwait, Oman, and a few other nations have already given out these honors.

Ontario Heroes Health & Social Services

The Ontario Heroes Health and Social Services (OHHSS) is a nonprofit organization with federal registration offering volunteer health, legal, and social services as well as professional mentoring, housing, and employment connections. Members of this distinctive group come from 16 different ethnic backgrounds. OHHSS is a very unique organization that works fervently to improve the lives of recommended persons. The operation range of the organization covers several places in Alberta, Nova Scotia, and Ontario.

Admiringly, OHHSS regularly handles cases in 17 different languages and has more than 250 volunteers from 30 various professional and cultural backgrounds, which supports Canada’s objective of community development and sustainable progress. Additionally, the organization has a new community development effort in India that will be launched in a few months, with the mission of expanding its services at a global scale.

Jointly, these two organizations pioneering the media and social service sectors at both local and global scales led to the idea of this unique event, Healthcare Excellence Awards 2023 in Canada.

Invaluable Indian Contributions to the Healthcare System of Canada

By going above and above the call of duty during the Covid-19 outbreak, healthcare personnel—including Indian healthcare workers in Canada—made the biggest contribution to society. Therefore, to recognize and felicitate this, Asianet News and Ontario Heroes laid the benchmark of this award to honor such persons in the healthcare industry.

Please note that the publicly funded healthcare system in Canada has undergone revisions during the past 40 years in response to societal and medical advancements. The essentials, however, remain the same: Therefore, it is the need, not the ability to pay, that determines eligibility for universal coverage of essential medical services. 

The majority of healthcare services in Canada are under administrative and provisional supervision of the provinces and territories, and all provincial and territorial health insurance plans must abide by the federal standards set forth in the Canada Health Act. The Canadian healthcare system has benefited greatly from the contributions of immigrants, notably healthcare professionals of Indian descent.

Asianet News, in collaboration with Ontario Heroes Health and Social Services, honors the healthcare professionals who have achieved in Canada as a pioneering move. The event recognizes the healthcare workers and aims to felicitate them with the following visions:
