Major General Sonali Ghosal assumed the charge of Additional Director General, Military Nursing Service, on Thursday.

She took over the reins after Major General Joyce Gladys Roach relinquished the post on her superannuation on Wednesday after having served the Army for nearly four decades.

An alumna of School of Nursing, Indian Naval Hospital Ship Asvini, Mumbai, Ghosal was commissioned in 1981. Immediately before her latest promotion, she was posted as Principal Matron of Army Hospital, Research & Referral, Delhi Cantonment.

Ghosal has served in Operation Sadbhavana, a military civic action programme launched by the Army in J&K and North East region. In recognition of her meritorious and distinguished service she was awarded the Chief of the Army Staff Commendation Card in 2014.

Ghosal says that the quest for nursing excellence has been her core value right from the beginning. “I believe that nursing profession is upheld by its pure virtue of service, commitment to mankind and dedication,” an official press release has quoted her as having said.
