The newly appointed Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) Chief Executive Officer (ag) Retired Brigadier George A. Lewis wants to better the public image of the hospital as well as to unify the relationship between staff members.
According to the Government Information Agency (GINA), this was emphasised during the handing over ceremony of computers by the PAHO/WHO to the GPHC recently.
The Acting GPHC CEO explained that during various observations, he noticed that there were conflicts between different parties and hopes to resolve the human relation aspect within the organization. “I am not doing it alone I will be working in conjunction with other professionals within the hospital towards achieving this goal”, Lewis noted.
The Acting GPHC CEO highlighted that he has viewed various hard working professionals who are working under, “trying conditions however their contribution is not highlighted for the public to know”. Lewis stressed that the public must not only be notified about the bad image surrounding the hospital but also (the) good done especially by staff who work assiduously to deliver proper health care services, GINA said.
According to GINA, the Acting GPHC CEO revealed that he has been receiving full support from his colleagues in bringing him up to speed with the hospital’s operations. He stressed that his appointment serves to assist in the management as well as to provide guidance for the hospital, along with the advice given by the health care professionals.
