|IESS officials congratulate former
Hospital Vozandes-Shell Administrator Steve Wilson.
“This recognition represents the commitment of our entire team as we continue to improve and meet the standards set within our environment here,” said Dr. Narcisa Brito, director of the hospital where she has been on staff for 27 years. In Ecuador the facility is known as Hospital Vozandes del Oriente (HVO).
Regarding IESS regulations about employers’ responsibility for minimizing employee risk in the workplace, Brito said, “For years the hospital has been improving its procedures that focus on staff health and safety through prevention programs and education to raise worker awareness.”

Staff members have also participated in workshops, attended conferences and received IESS training. “In 2011 and 2012 we were invited to take part in the open houses organized by the deputy of the IESS Workplace Risk Department,” Brito said. At the 2011 event, the hospital’s floor display showed the formation of its compliance committee, demonstrated services available and highlighted the waste management program.

“We give thanks to God for His faithfulness to each employee and for the ability to share salvation, love and service with those who come to us,” concluded Brito, who for many years directed the laboratory at the small hospital. After serving as HVO’s assistant director she became its first Ecuadorian director in April when missionary Steve Wilson and his wife, Diane, returned to live in the U.S.
