At the heart of all our activities on the island is the Roatán Volunteer Pediatric Clinic, housed at the public hospital. Each day, 25-30 children visit the Clinic as outpatients to receive world class medical care. The Clinic is now staffed with a full-time Honduran pediatrician, Dra. Karla Cerritos, who is assisted by rotating American pediatric attendings and residents. Additionally, a student intern from the HEAL program helps with patient registration and triage.
The Roatán Volunteer Pediatric Clinic empowers the public health system in the Bay Islands of Honduras to improve the quality of, access to and continuity of pediatric care. Global Healing connects Honduran and American medical professionals to learn from one another to become better practitioners using modern technologies that address locally relevant challenges.
