Chandra Nisbet Cansino Is the New CEO at the KHMH

The Social Security Board’s current General Manager for Corporate Customer Relations Services, Chandra Nisbet Cansino has been selected to be the new Chief Executive Officer of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital Authority (KHMHA). Nisbet-Cansino replaces Michelle Cox-Hoare and will take over from Operations Director Timothy Seguro, who was acting CEO. Late this evening, we got reaction from Nisbet Cansino, a registered nurse, who told Love News that she is in it for the long haul.

Chandra Nisbet-Cansino: “For me it’s an honor to be joining a team of excellent people working at the KHMH at this time. I just see myself as the newest member of an awesome team of people and I look forward to working with every single one of them there.”

Hipolito Novelo, Love News: The CEO of the KHMHA is seen mostly as a political appointment and your political background is different from the current administration.

Chandra Nisbet-Cansino: “Hipolito luckily illness knows no party. I applied just like everybody else, I stood in line, I waited fo my police record which is clean thank Go and I was interviewed. I went through the interview process a couple times and we are here where we are today with my appointment and newest member of the KHMH team.”

Hipolito Novelo, Love News: What made you want this job during a very difficult time at the KHMH ? 

Chandra Nisbet-Cansino: “Well for persons who know me well or who might not even have to know me well know that I’m very passionate about Belize. I can argue that I love Belize more than anybody else and my second passion is for healthcare and healthcare provision. I have always wanted to be a part of that movement, a part of that change and when I saw the vacancy I figured that it was an opportunity for me to make positive chance and hence the reason I applied for the position.”

Hipolito Novelo, Love News: Have you mentally set yourself up in terms of what you go there and do because you know the KHMH unit is stressed out, KHMH itself is stressed out.

Chandra Nisbet-Cansino: “Yes I’m very very familiar with what happens at KHMH both from an employee perspective and from a board perspective and now from a management perspective and so I am very well aware of what I’m going to face when I start my new job but I’m looking forward to the challenge and like I told many persons that have reached out to me I’m all in.”

The Ministry of Health and Wellness in a press release congratulated Nisbet Casino. The Ministry also announced that the Ministry’s representative on the Board of Management CEO Doctor Deysi Mendez has been replaced by Doctor Julio Sabido. Doctor David Hoy and Francois Chebat have resigned and been replaced by Doctor Fernando Cuellar and Daisy Codd.
