A Legacy of Service: The Oboma Family’s Enduring Contribution to Lacor Hospital

In the heart of Lacor Hospital, a story of dedication and service has been woven into its very fabric—a story that spans over six decades and two generations of the Oboma family.

It all began in 1960 when Mr. Oboma John joined Lacor Hospital as a storekeeper. With meticulous care, he managed the hospital’s supplies, ensuring that the medical staff had everything they needed to provide exceptional care to patients. His commitment to his role was unwavering, and for thirty years, he was a familiar face to all who passed through the hospital’s storerooms.

In 1990, Mr. Oboma transitioned to serve as a Gateman, a position he held with equal dedication for six years before retiring. His presence at the gates was more than just a security measure; it was a welcoming embrace for visitors and a fond farewell for those departing.

The legacy continued with his daughter, Ms. Lanyero Olga Joyce, who followed in her father’s footsteps of service to Lacor Hospital. As a Clinical Officer and Anesthesiologist from 1999 to 2023, Ms. Olga played a critical role in patient care. Her skilled hands and compassionate heart brought comfort and healing to countless individuals over her twenty-four years at the hospital.
