The Hospital

Hospital Loma de Luz is a 40,000 square foot, 50-bed mission hospital with 3 operating rooms, 8 out-patient clinic examining rooms, Emergency Department, Wound Clinic/PT, a 2-chair dental clinic, optometry clinic, laboratory, and pharmacy. It currently staffs for an in-patient census of 18 higher acuity beds (predicated by the significant on-going cost of employing Honduran nursing staff), and is currently constructing additional lower acuity patient rooms.

Between triage, out-patient clinic, emergency room, surgery (both in-patient and out-patient) and in-patient services, we care for roughly 20,000 patients per year and perform about 1200 surgical procedures per year. We serve a primary catchment area of roughly 50,000 souls, and take referrals from Honduran physicians, Nurse, and Public Health facilities from all over Honduras.
