Employer: Roper St. Francis Healthcare
Richard Belcher has worked at Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital since its opening, and his work there won the hospital system’s 2012 Engineer of the Year award.
Belcher has continued his work into 2013, meeting with staff to ensure engineering requests are fulfilled, rearranging his schedule to cover engineering needs that fall outside of his work hours, and working to avoid overtime when possible.
He’s also solved engineering issues creatively, allowing operating tables and other equipment to continue functioning with temporary fixes until spare parts can be sent to the hospital.
Belcher’s commitment to quality and patient safety makes him stand out in the engineering department.
