Mercy Hospital celebrated its eleventh birthday in October. Mercy Administrator Jinnah Lahai spoke to the staff at a small ceremony commemorating the event. “We want to take some time today to celebrate Mercy. We are no longer children. Mercy has been here for eleven good years of quality health service delivery. We have all worked very hard to make this hospital one of the best. We should be very proud of ourselves. I want to especially thank those staff who have been with Mercy from the very beginning. You have made Mercy what it is today.”
Matron Sister Augusta Kpanabaum echoed these thoughts, saying, “Today, we thank God for Mercy Hospital. It has saved so many lives. We pray that the good work continues and that we all do our level best to make Mercy better and better.”
The ceremony was held in Mercy’s new patient waiting area, built as part of the construction project that included a new wing housing two new operating theatres.
