At the annual dinner of Perak Community Specialist Hospital (PCSH) with the theme “Oscar Night”, the Board of Directors, management, doctors, nurses and staff were dressed to impress. The dinner function held at Impiana Hotel Ipoh on Saturday, September 8 was to recognise the contributions of staff for the past year and to reward them.
In his opening address, Dato’ Lee Hau Hian, President of The Perak Chinese Maternity Association which owns PCSH, shared with guests the challenges faced. As a non-profit community association, the hospital used to provide free medical healthcare but this is no longer possible today.
Therefore, the Board and management have to redefine their social mission and see what vision PCSH can carry for the next hundred years. In this journey of rediscovery, a new business model has to be adopted, but still with the aim of providing affordable, quality healthcare.
Dato’ Lee believed PCSH would soon have a new concept and facilities in place, forging new alliances, to build the hospital as an ultimate medical institution. Besides an eye hospital in the pipeline, PCSH aims to be a multi-functional and multi-disciplinary hospital. He also called upon PCSH committee members to take on leadership roles.
At the function, long serving employees with 10, 15 and 25 years behind them, were recognised and rewarded. Prizes were also presented to the best dressed male and female guests.
In line with the night’s theme, a special comedy movie entitled “The Tale of Sinde Rella”, was screened. It was a production by staff of PCSH. Guests were also entertained with music and energetic dance performances throughout the night, interspersed with games and lucky draws.
