GOPIO 2017–Community Service Awards
Dr George Cherian, Bahrain
After a 25 year career in Neonatology that spanned 3 continents, for the last 7 years Dr. Cherian has taken leadership of the American Mission Hospital in Bahrain. The hospital has been providing high quality care regardless of the ability to pay for the last 120 years. The Indian migrants who cannot afford insurance for healthcare have largely been the beneficiaries of hospital’s policy. A sustainable model of financing to provide this care has been created to enable it to grow.
