Talking about his work at the Mission Hospital, Guido says, “During the years that I have been working at the Hospital, I have felt a great deal of satisfaction being part of an excellent team. In the laboratory, we perform different types of tests including hematology, urology, glucose, and others that are more specialized. I am happy to perform these tests because through the results, I can help my colleagues to provide a better diagnosis and treatment for each patient.”

When asked about his position in the Mission Hospital, Pedro shared, “First, I want to say that I am always grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to belong to this hospital for many years and to be able to provide good service and good oral healthcare, both for people in the community. Over the years, the clinic has been recognized for creating absolute trust in patients because the cost of services is affordable and the quality of care is exceptional.”

Mayra describes what working as a nursing assistant means to her saying, “One of the most important parts of my job is to accurately document each patient’s record, so that my colleagues can give the proper follow-up care and provide the best healthcare possible. Personally, I really like this profession because it is a great help to the community, my family and myself. Through this work, I can find the meaning and value of life.
