James Simon Returns to Machame

Jim Simon and Orthopedic Surgeon John Lyimo


RN Jim Simon returned to Machame Lutheran Hospital for 2 weeks in February 2010. Jim was with us in 2002 and 2004 as the relationship with Alegent Health in Nebraska USA was beginning.  During the ensuing years he has been very active in supporting Machame Hospital, especially in the sourcing of equipment and supplies to equip the growing orthopedic program. Jim spent his time learning, assisting, teaching, organizing, and also the thing he does best: connecting.  On his final day he told the staff “In America we have the technology – but I have learned here the importance of making space for God in our operating rooms”.  Thank you Jim! Karibu tena!
