Unfortunately the hospital in Saipan is understaffed. There are only two pediatricians to cover the inpatient and outpatient departments. They are in need of help.
On the first day that I arrived, the recruitment began. The human resources personnel were very sweet and begged me to stay. One person said, “I heard you want to live on the beach. We will find a place for you. If we don’t, one of my cousins lives directly on the sand. I will kick him out so you can have the place.”
Also, each day at least one doctor and a few nurses ask me to sign a year-long contract. They always say, “You just need to sign on the dotted line”.
Yesterday, I gave a lecture and was told 7-10 people would be there. When I started, there were more than 35 in attendance and everyone seemed interested and excited.
Not only is Saipan physically beautiful, everyone is extremely nice and welcoming.
