A joint venture between the state government, Emmanuel Hospital Association, New Delhi and Christian Medical College, Vellore, CIHSR has been a pro-poor hospital with its subsidized health care and continues to do so.
The thanksgiving service started off with Associate Director David Chandran giving the welcome speech followed by a congregational hymn. Director, CIHSR, Dr P K John gave a flash back on how the institution was started while Medical Superintendent Dr Sedevi highlighted the visions and goals of the institution. While a special presentation was given by Dental Surgeon Dr Limawati Pongen along with CIHSR choir.
Felicitations for the institution were given by Alongla Aier and Rev Dr Rabi Pamei. Speaking on the occasion Principal emeritus, PCC, Rev Dr Tuisem Shishak called upon the congregation to give thanks to no matter whatever the circumstances might be. He also took excerpts from the Bible asserting on the importance of thanksgiving. “Neglect of giving thanks to God is sinful” he asserted. Besides medical staff of the institution, the programme was also attended by well- wishers.
