Dr Seemin Jamali to also serve as JPMC’s executive director

Karachi

November 25, 2016

The respected joint executive director and head of the emergency department at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC), Dr Seemin Jamali, was now also to look after the responsibilities of an Executive Director, as per a notification issued by the medical facility on Thursday.

Dr Seemin was to serve as JPMC’s acting executive director till the Sindh Health Department finalised its recruitment rules.

The post fell vacant after the Supreme Court directed the Sindh government to remove the appointed executive and deputy directors – Prof Anisuddin Bhatti and Dr Jawed Akhtar Jamali respectively - from the posts, since both were non-cadre officers; the officials were removed a week ago.

The SC had further asked the health department to appoint the medical facility’s executive director by Thursday.

Dr Seemin’s appointment was favourably regarded by both senior and junior doctors of the hospital as well as paramedics, nurses and other staffers of the JPMC, who rushed to the emergency department to congratulate her.

Having served as the emergency department in-charge for the past several years, Dr Seemin was a popular figure among not only JPMC employees but also the patients who come to seek treatment at the hospital.

Addressing her fellow staffers and young doctors, the respected health practitioner thanked them for their warm wishes, adding, that her providing proper medical treatment and facilities to patients would be her priority.

She asked doctors and paramedics to respect their profession and deal with patients and attendants politely as the facility was a ray of hope for the poor seeking high quality treatment.

“No slackness in performing respective duties would be tolerated,” she said, and added that she was also to prioritise maintenance of hygiene and cleanliness in and around the hospital.
