Feedback from Sr. Arpon on August 16, 2011 Learning Session on Hospital Administration
Dear Dr. Joson,
I just want to personally send you this thank you note for the valuable and informative lectures you shared with us last Tuesday. I thank God for your person and for generously sharing with us your expertise. What I learned was
indeed knowledge worth keeping and worth sharing when I go back to serve our hospital.
Divine Word Hospital has an on-going construction of a 5-storey annex building. It’s now on the last phase, hopefully it will be operational by October, 2011. On the 2nd flr of this new building will be the OR-RR complex – with 6 Operating Rooms. So I was equally interested to see the OR-RR complex of your hospital then. I was impressed by the set-up and not to discount the time spent by the OR Manager while giving us a tour of the place. She was so accommodating in answering all our inquiries. In the 1st floor of this annex building is our new ER, so I’m likewise eager to see MDH- ER and observe the flow.
Sir, thank you again for your hospitality and for the nice snacks served to us.
More power to you. I’m looking forward for another set of lectures tomorrow and a tour in other areas of your health institution.
God bless you!
