Twenty people, who collectively gave 380 years of service to the privately-operated Bayview Hospital, were last night honoured for their dedication to the institution.
Of the number of people recognised during the 25th anniversary dinner and awards, six worked with the hospital for 25 years, four for 20 years and 10 for 15 years.
Wendy Gibbons, Andrea Craham, Lynda Lewis, Jean McCarthy, Mariam Rouse and Beverly Thompson were all employed for 25 years, while Sheila Alleyne, Jeannette Gittens, Andrea Taylor and Sophia Yearwood have been with the company 20 years.
“The Bayview Hospital has been a partner with the Ministry of Health in the provision of excellent healthcare to Barbadians and others in the region,” noted Minister of Health John Boyce, the feature speaker at the event held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
“Excellence is not denoted by a single act but is characterised by people consistently doing what is right. This means that they must be highly motivated, competent, selfless and ultimately willing to put organisational goals ahead of personal pursuits.”
