K.H.M.H. Turns 27

Today inside the courtyard at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, government officials, including the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health and Wellness and the staff and management authority of the institution gathered to celebrate its twenty-seventh anniversary. Now seven hundred employees strong, the tertiary healthcare institution has been serving the country since September fifteenth, 1995. Several persons took to the podium including K.H.M.H.A. C.E.O. Chandra Cansino, the President of the K.H.M.H. Workers’ Union Andrew Baird and Prime Minister John Briceño.

“In the darkest of days during the pandemic, whilst many of us were staying at home, you all were coming to work every single day. And in some instances, you were unable to even go visit your family for a week or two at a time because we did not understand the virus during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. That showed great dedication and love for the work that you do and I don’t think we can acknowledge that kind of dedication that you all have for the profession that you have all chosen. Many instances, we take you all for granted. Like with everything else, we remember you during an emergency and not about the work that you come to do here every single day, the small miracles that you have happen through your caring hands.”

“I also recognise the dedication and the commitment of all the wonderful employees of this institution. Without you, the K.H.M.H. would not have been and it is you who should be celebrated with the highest quality of work, time and dedication you have given over the twenty-seven years and even more so during the pandemic. Throughout the many years, it has been a joy to work at the K.H.M.H.A. and to witness the institutional growth from strength to strength from 1995 when the doors were first opened to now where we are performing cardiac surgeries, cat-lab dialysis and cancer treatment services.”

“Over the years, the demand for care and services increased, forcing us to expand and deliver. Today, we have a lot to boast about and with the dedication of our staff and their awesome ability to rise to the occasion, despite the greatest of challenges. And with the support of the board and the Ministry of Health and Wellness we will have a lot more achievements. Our people need us and we must answer the call.”
