Techiman Holy Family Hospital in the Bono East region observes an annual thanksgiving service and award ceremony for their retired workers of the year. The awards and the feast ceremony which started in the past decades have awarded hundreds of their staff valued thousands of Ghana cedis. In 2022, 10 working staff of the hospital retired received a freezer and a citation plaque.
The feast and the awards ceremony of the Holy Family Hospital which started over a decade have benefited all workers who retired from the hospital. Perhaps, this has distinguished the Holy Family Hospital from others health facilities in the country.
At the end of every year, the hospital organizes a cocktail party with a live band to release stress and also pay prizes for its hard-working staff. These favourable conditions have helped to maintain the quality of service for their clients.
The Techiman Catholic Holy Family Hospital, in a day, attends to an average of 500 OPD attendance with over 95 percent benefiting NHIS. The challenge is that most of the drugs to offer patients have to be purchased by the clients due to the delayed payment by the NHIA which is a nationwide issue.
In the 17th annual thanksgiving and prize awards day ceremony, the Catholic Bishop of the Techiman Diocese, Bishop, Dominic Yeboah Marko was represented by Rev, Martin Oduro Bilson, the Rector of St Francis Minor Seminary SHS of Buoyem in the Bono East region.
Father, Martin Oduro Bilson reading the script of the Bishop, Dominic Yeboah Nyarko thanked the hospital administration and particularly the 10 retired workers for their dedication and good services rendered to the hospital and their clients. He charged the workers of the hospital to maintain a good image of the hospital at all times.
Father Martin concluded that how you dress, is how you are addressed.
