WINCHESTER – A pharmacist at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital has been recognized for his efforts in his field.

Dr. Mohamed Gazarin was given the Hospital Practice in a Rural Setting Award by the Ontario branch Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists.

The award honours pharmacists for innovation, creativity, persistence and resilience while advancing the work in rural pharmacies.

But Dr. Gazarin wasn’t going to take all the credit for his success.

“This achievement is due to the amazing team we have here at WDMH. In all of my time here, I have never heard ‘no’ being said for any new initiative or idea,” Gazarin said.

The head of the pharmacy department at the hospital says Gazarin exemplifies the health care facility’s commitment to compassionate excellence.
