From the Management
Last month ADK celebrated its 25th Anniversary in healthcare. It was with immense pride and satisfaction that we passed a milestone in serving the people of Maldives. It is ADK Hospital’s vision to be the leading healthcare provider in the country and we now embark on addressing these challenges.
A number of events were carried out to celebrate the day. One initiative was to start a patient education program. Each patient who received services got a present along with it a set of messages on their rights and responsibilities when seeking care. The next step will be to develop a more comprehensive mechanism for patients to thoroughly understand and adhere to these rights and responsibilities as well as other desirable actions while in the care of medical professionals.
In addition, patient participation was a highlight of the day’s celebrations. Patients who utilize services were given the opportunity to inaugurate the new services and hence the relationship with the institute and its patients has been strengthened. It is the view or the Hospital that more often patients should be involved in such events.
The highlight of the celebrations was the Silver Jubilee Staff Night. The participation and enthusiasm of the staff was immense. The documentaries, dances, acts, commercial break and the fashion show all showed the amount of talent we have within ourselves. It was absolutely brilliant. The raffles were a major attraction too. Many expensive gifts were distributed and congratulations to all the lucky people who went away with the broadest of smiles and happiness.
Of course such an event could not have been possible without the effort of many and the sacrifices of many too. First, those who sacrificed while all other enjoyed are the heroes. They sat at the Hospital to ensure that services were not interrupted. The management’s heartfelt acknowledgement and thanks goes to that team. For all those who participated directly and indirectly in the event, it could not have been possible without your efforts and we appreciate and acknowledge your enthusiasm. We wish to thank, the caterers, Juwey’s Café’ and Buruzu Catering for the excellent food and services, AKASAKA band for their performance, Think Associate for their decorations and event management, So Cute for the photography and videography and all the sponsors who provided the prizes for the raffle winners.
The best thing was that everyone took part in one way or the other. The staff got a night to remember and proved to be a motivational factor for their continued contribution to the institute. We wish to continue the success we have had and reach new heights in future. We also wish to have many more celebrations with the staff and continue to improve in what we do. We will remain a major healthcare stakeholder in the Maldives and keep caring for the people.
