SLHA ceremony

Miller’s Merry Manor executive John Velasquez, left, presents MGH Dr. Shankaran Srikanth, right, with the Senior Living Hero Award for his work in senior living facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As Dr. Shankaran Srikanth walked out to the Marion General Hospital Courtyard Monday, he was surprised to see his family there waiting for him. Soon the reason why they were there became clear.

The hospital staff had gathered to celebrate National Hospital Week with a cookout, but there was also an award to be given out that had been kept a secret from Srikanth.
