Chief Executive Officer Dr. Wilson K. Aruasa today, January 18, 2019, officiated the Hospital’s second annual prayer day. The event is a structured spiritual life component to help Hospital staff gain a transformative life at work and also their private lives.
MTRH Annual Prayer day is an event that plays a pivotal role in building the morale and zeal of staff, whose daily duties are central and continue to make Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital the leading healthcare institution in East and Central African Region.
Dr. Aruasa while giving his remarks said prayers have benefits ranging from physical to spiritual ones, saying daily prayer benefits staff individually and also their families. He noted that as prayer develops a person’s relationship with God, it also has a great impact in changing people and relationships which in turn improves societal norms.
“As a Hospital, we respect the right to worship. When you pray, it builds work efforts and makes the Hospital achieve its Mission to all our clients” he said.
He appreciated staff whose relations with each other have been of proper standard, saying this is the right way that we can better understand the purpose in life, because we begin to understand where we came from and where we are going.
There is need to work hard and develop good relationships amongst hospital teams for optimum work performance and output.
Prayer answers four questions of life: the origin, meaning, morality and destiny. These are the virtues that drive the Hospital’s themes of subsequent prayers.
Dr. Aruasa while unveiling the pastoral themes for the whole year emphasized that the Hospital respects all religions as per the constitution. He also said that space has been allotted for all faiths.
