AMI Expeditionary Healthcare’s Marc McKeating, Talent Acquisition Specialist and Andrew Togneri, Recruitment Specialist, share their gratitude as they reflect on their time in our Aruba location.
“It was great to meet the team we’ve spent the last 6/7 months recruiting here in Aruba. As well as doing their outstanding work in the hospital, the AMI team has also integrated superbly into the local community. From the local puppy and cat shelter to the homeless shelter, the team has made a difference on the island. One of our MDs, Anna Joseph, invited us to see the work done at the puppy and cat shelter Sgt Pepper’s Friends. The shelter relies on volunteers and donations to do what it does. In addition, many of the AMI team have built friendships with local staff attending weekly hikes across the island – we were lucky enough to be invited along to join them. It was an honour to see how the AMI team had been volunteering and supporting them over the past few months.
Visiting the team in the hospital was a great experience, and we were lucky enough to get a tour from the nursing manager, Gino. He introduced us to some of the local nurses and the senior management team. While on our hospital tour, it was great to see our team in action and where they had been working since the pandemic hit. It was brilliant to see the new ward that is being built and is all but ready to open, just the finishing few touches required. Many of the local staff praised the AMI team for their efforts during the pandemic.
As the project begins to wind down with decreased numbers of Covid-19 on the island, the local nurses expressed their sadness at the AMI team rolling off. The team on the ground has not only represented AMI with the passion and credibility we ask for but will leave a legacy due to their integration with the team and community. It has been a delight to meet the team in person over the past couple of weeks, and it’s great to hear that they all would be interested in future AMI deployments.”
