Children Hospital of San Vicente Foundation

Our hospital is a non-profit private institution that offers health services with emphasis on highly-complex patient care. It centers its economic effort on those patients who need service but cannot afford to pay for it. It performs its task with a comprehensive human focus, quality, and ethics with qualified and committed personnel. The Hospital also participates in the development of human talent and in research development in health areas to contribute to the generation of knowledge.
Hospital Classroom for 5,000 Children Illnesses
 
The San Vicente Foundation Children's Hospital was the first to offer this service in Colombia in the year 2000. This service was created in order to reduce the negative emotional impact illnesses had on children who had to remain in the Hospital for extended periods. Each year 5,000 hospitalized children benefit from the Hospital Classroom, which they have affectionately called "Escuelita" (Little School). project reportread updates from the field
SAVE A CHILD WITH EYE CANCER
 
Ocular cancer occurs in one in 15,000 live births. It mainly affects children under 3 years of age. It starts as a white reflection in the pupil of one or both eyes. It is usually detected by parents. If not discovered and treated early, children may lose one or both eyes and even the life as this cancer metastasizes to the brain and bones. The Eye Cancer Program at Hospital Infantil San Vicente Fundacion is saving children from blindness and death. project reportread updates from the field
