Members and staff of the St. James Parish Council, and health care givers and patients from clinics in St. James came together recently, to honour Dr. Anjina Sridhar, who has given eight years of service to the parish.
Dr. Sridhar, who will be returning to his homeland, India, was showered with accolades and presented with numerous plaques, certificates and other gifts at an appreciation ceremony held at the Montego Bay Civic Centre.
She joined the staff of the St. James Infirmary in 1998 and has, over many years, offered quality health care to inmates there, as well as seeing to the health needs of hundreds of patients attached to several health centres across St. James.
Presenting a certificate of appreciation to Dr. Sridhar on behalf of the St. James Parish Council, Secretary/Manager, Ian Reid, said that based on the history of India and how it has always championed the cause of those less fortunate, he was not surprised at the high level of service she has rendered to residents of St. James.
“India has consistently led in offering service, not only to countries like Jamaica, but also to Africa and other large countries . We here in St. James are proud of you and your country and the wonderful people you represent. We recognize you for your years of invaluable, outstanding, committed and dedicated service rendered to the St. James Infirmary and the people of the parish.” Mr. Reid said.
Community Health Aide, May Walker of the Adelphi Health Centre, described Dr. Sridhar as an understanding physician and a people person, who cared not only about the patients at the health centres, but also for the staff members as well.
“We at Adelphi Health Centre want to thank you Dr. Sridhar for the valuable contribution you have made to the people of the community . you have sown into the lives of many and let me remind you that reaping is a lot more than sowing. You shall receive in abundance that which you have sown . we love you and will never forget you…,” Mrs. Walker said.
