REPORT 2015 - 16
The third unit to experience a change in leadership was Herbertpur Christian Hospital, when it was required for Mrs. Helen Paul, the then Managing Director, to draw on her wealth of experience to bring calm and assurance in Satbarwa, an unit unsettled by recent trying times. Dr. Daniel Rajkumar, surgeon and Medical Director, ably stepped into the role in Herbertpur, to build on the stability this unit enjoyed. The nursing school in Herbertpur completed its academic and hostel facilities. The Maternity ward and the Labor room were renovated to improve the services. Wheel chair distribution was done with Joni and Friends, CHGN and Engage Disability. A highlight in the year was the recognition of the ability of Herbertpur Christian Hospital to resurrect a run-down government facility for destitute women in Dehradun by the Uttarakhand Assembly – within a few weeks of accepting the request; they effected a complete turnaround – a truly public testimony!
