The Hospital

Hospital Loma de Luz is a 40,000 square foot, 50-bed mission hospital with 3 operating rooms, 7 out-patient clinic examining rooms, an emergency room, a wound clinic, a 2-chair dental clinic, an eyeglasses clinic, a laboratory, and a pharmacy.  It currently staffs for an in-patient census for 8 beds (predicated by the significant on-going cost of employing Honduran nursing staff).  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 600 surgical procedures per year.  We serve a primary catchment area of roughly 70,000 souls, and take referrals from Honduran physicians and nurses at Public Health facilities from all over Honduras.
