Workers Commitment Service and Department Managers Dedication Program

At the dawn of the new year, Adventist Medical Center Iligan (AMCI) upholds the tradition of conducting its Workers Commitment Service and Department Managers Dedication Program, a solemn occasion that signifies the dedication and commitment of the hospital's workforce. This year, on January 12, 2024, amidst the backdrop of the hospital's inaugural Board Meeting, the esteemed Chairman of the Board and President of the Southwestern Philippine Union Conference (SWPUC), Pastor Jerry Patalinghug, delivered an inspiring message to mark the occasion.

Joined by prominent figures in the healthcare community, including the CEO of Adventist International Health System Philippines, Mr. Roy Perez, and the SWPUC Health Director, Pastor Teddy Baang, Pastor Patalinghug's address resonated with the timeless wisdom of 1 Corinthians 3:9: "For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building."

In his message, Pastor Patalinghug emphasized the sacred partnership between God and His workers, highlighting the significance of collaboration in fulfilling the hospital's mission and vision. He underscored the role of each individual as a vital component in God's divine plan, likening them to laborers in a field and builders of a spiritual edifice.

The event served as a poignant reminder of the noble calling entrusted to those who serve in healthcare, urging them to approach their work with dedication, compassion, and a steadfast commitment to excellence. Through unity of purpose and a shared devotion to serving others, the hospital's workers and department managers reaffirmed their pledge to uphold the highest standards of care and professionalism in their respective roles.

As the morning light illuminated the hospital's halls, echoing with words of inspiration and purpose, the Workers Commitment Service and Department Managers Dedication Program set the tone for a year filled with promise, unity, and unwavering faith in the service of God and humanity.
