In Medellin, Colombia, different hospitals have closed 140 hospital beds for children in the last 5 years. This limits the possibility of children to receive medical attention, especially in cases of serious illnesses. Our Children's Hospital, took on this problem, committing to keep beds open for the 60,000 children we serve every year. To do this, we need to update our medical equipment and improve the physical infrastructure that welcomes the children and their families.
The Children's Hospital is committed to maintaining a professional team with extensive experience in the care of children. However, it requires help to acquire the latest medical equipment to treat serious diseases such as cancer, chronic renal failure, burns, low birth weight, among others. As well as resources for the improvement of the infrastructure that welcomes both patients and their families.
The project will make it possible to maintain 222 hospitalization beds and 81 special and intensive care beds, to offer a new opportunity for health and life to 60,000 children each year.
