The award instituted under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, covering all the district hospitals in the country. The ’Kayakalpa’ scheme had been implemented in 20 district hospitals in the state during the year 2015-16. District level Kayakalpa award nomination committee headed by the  DC  Dakshina Kannada district had been formed as per requirement.

An internal ’Kayakalpa’ committee with representatives from all the departments of the hospital including medical officers and administrative functionaries was formed in Wenlock Hospital in a bid to achieve excellence of operations towards bagging this award. Initially, the committee made efforts to get highest marks in the evaluation process towards staking claiming for the above award.

In the second stage, an intra-district evaluation committee visited the hospital secretly without prior intimation to check the facts. At this stage, the hospital continued to retain the first place.
