Pharmacy awarded for excellence

The Pharmacy of the Cayman Islands
Hospital received top honours and was presented with the regional award during
the Caribbean Association of Pharmacists annual awards ceremony in Dominica.

Two members of the pharmacy staff
also received awards for excellence in their field.

Dhal Seeram of Faith Hospital
received the Boehringer-Ingelheim Professional Practice Award for outstanding
contribution to hospital pharmacy practice.

“I am humbled to be acknowledged by
my colleagues from the most recognized professional pharmacy body in the Caribbean,”
said Mr. Seeram. “I encourage our youth to join this noble and rewarding
profession of pharmacy and be a blessing to themselves, their families and community.
Pharmacists are among the most trusted and reliable health care professionals
and are always there to help with health related matters.”

Angelline Shillingford was awarded
the ACME Trophy for the Caribbean Pharmacy Spirit award.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to
be recognized for the professional work that I do. Even more meaningful because
I was nominated by my peers and it is a testament to the hard work of the
entire pharmacy department,” Mrs. Shillingford said.

“The selection of these talented
team members as recipients of these prestigious awards from among peers
throughout the region further demonstrates the level of professional expertise
and skills at the Cayman Islands Hospital,” said George Town Hospital CEO
Lizzette Yearwood. “This is something the people of the Cayman Islands can take
pride in.”
