"I am an engineer by training and had never worked in a healthcare setting before I joined NHCS. However, I have always wanted to join it as I felt working in healthcare is very meaningful. I believe that when we are passionate about something, we have more energy, become more creative and will search more diligently for solutions when difficult problems arise, and in turn inspire others that we work alongside with.
Good healthcare is not just about making treatments and medicines accessible, but also having compassion and discovering what matters most to patients. I believe that good healthcare can change people's lives, and that it should focus on empathy, understanding, and treating patients as a whole and not just the disease."
