His Excellency Dr. Al-Rabeeah has valued the major role played by all the retirees, saying in a speech delivered to them, “Dear colleagues…On this bright day, we bid a farewell to an elite of our colleagues who had contributed to flourishing the Ministry, and we would like to assure them that this Ministry is theirs,  and the achievements accomplished over years and decades are a normal result for their efforts and hard working, regardless of their positions, as every employee in the Ministry works to achieve a service worthy of the standing of this country and its valued citizens.”
Moreover, Dr. Al-Rabeeah added, “Dear retired colleagues…Although you have left us physically, but you are still supporting us by your spirit, efforts, and the fruit of your continuous efforts, and you will keep on providing the Ministry with your unstoppable consultations and suggestions.”

For his part, the Supervisor-General of the Employees' Rights General Department, Dr. Fahad Bin Suleiman Al-saidairi said in a speech he delivered that "honoring those men comes as recognition for their efforts which they exerted in the health work marathon during long spans of serious work, and conscientiousness and faithfulness in doing their job tasks, which had a positive impact and may Allah be praised, contributed to developing the health services and advancing the performance levels."
And in a speech delivered by Mr. Ziad Al-khaslan, on behalf of the retirees amounting to 26 ones, he extended their thanks and appreciation to his Excellency the Minister of Health for honoring them, affirming that they will keep frequenting the Ministry and they will provide their experience whenever they are asked by the Ministry. He went on pointing out that this honoring is recognition of the Ministry of Health for their efforts, and loyalty to what they did during their service term." 
In drawing his speech to a close, he suggested that the MOH honor its in-service employees, to the effect that it awards whoever has spent ten years and over an appreciation certificate, as well as those who have spent 20 and 30 years. This is in order to encourage them to exert more effort in service of the MOH's objectives.
Present at the ceremony were the Deputy Minister of Health, the MOH under-secretaries, and a host of officials.
