What’s a hospital without its people – the ones providing care for our patients?
Sharing her thoughts at the celebration event, Dr Juanjuan Xiang, who has been with Gleneagles Chengdu Hospital since day one, said that she was moved by the strong spirit of unity and camaraderie at the hospital. No matter what challenges come their way, as long as everyone faces it together as a team, she is hopeful of a bright future ahead.
Nurse Jing Li, who joined the hospital in June this year, fondly shared that she felt very nervous on her first day at work, but was glad to be greeted by warm and friendly colleagues who made her feel at home immediately. Thanks to their patience and guidance, she was able to learn the ropes quickly and finds pride and joy in her daily work.
The event ended on a sweet note, with chefs from Gleneagles Chengdu Hospital serving up exquisite cakes and a delicious buffet lunch for all to enjoy.
As part of its anniversary celebrations, the hospital also organised a family day activity attended by some 20 staff and their children on 30 October. Besides hearing an informative talk on spleen and stomach health, the children had the opportunity to showcase their talents in singing, dancing, music performance and even poetry reading - drawing enthusiastic applause from their proud parents and fellow colleagues.
Here’s wishing Gleneagles Chengdu Hospital many more fulfilling years of touching lives and transforming care.
