AMOSUP Cebu marks 20th year

 

AMOSUP Seamen’s Hospital Cebu celebrated its 20th anniversary, honouring the people who have set the foundations of service and excellence in the Visayas service branch two decades ago.

AMOSUP president Dr. Conrado F Oca reminisced how the late founder Capt. Gregorio S Oca along with a few others started building the institution in Cebu. How a vast rice field was turned into a fully operational tertiary level hospital which now includes a Sailor’s Home, Slopchest and Sports Complex that serve the union members and employees.

Dr. Oca also recalled its start-ups of roughly 10 employees, and as years went by, ballooned to roughly 300 competent workforce at present. The AMOSUP president was more than happy and proud in recognizing the employees who have been working their way through various challenges 10 years and beyond.

Hospital chief radiologist Dr. Romero Villar and Mr. Jerry Cobarde of Engineering Maintenance and General Services Department represented the awardees and gave their words of gratitude to colleagues, the management and mostly to our Heavenly Father for the chance to work in the institution for 20 memorable years.

A whole mix of smiles, laughter, tears of joy and cheers among employees and guests interlaced the celebration with warm congratulations and wishes. Everyone sang to their hearts delight at the end of the program the song titled ‘Through the Years’ as AMOSUP Seamen’s Hospital Cebu set sail for another 20 years and beyond. (By Marvin Lao) SF
