Medical Bridges visits Obras in La Antigua Guatemala

This past February, CEO Dorothy Bolettieri, Mr. George Bolettieri, Director of Business Development and Mr. Al Carrasco, Director of Global Services had the pleasure of visiting La Antigua, Guatemala, home of Virgen del Socorro, a five-building patient facility that is being constructed by Asociación Amigos Pro Obras Sociales (AAPOS) under the guidance of Mr. Michael Ascoli, one of the founding members of AAPOS.

Touring Virgen Del Socorro, the Medical Bridges team was impressed by the well thought out design and utilization of the vast grounds. During the tour, they saw firsthand some of the medical equipment, such as patient monitors and hospital beds that Medical Bridges sent on the 12 shipments. With Guatemala’s poverty rate being one of the highest in Latin America, The Virgen del Socorro Project is expected to fill a huge gap in quality healthcare services.

The team members all commented that “Mr. Ascoli and all at AAPOS couldn’t have made them feel more welcome. The Virgen Del Socorro Project truly highlighted what the Medical Bridges mission is all about.” Mr. Ascoli sent 12 shipments to Obras Del Hermano Pedro beginning in February 2014, These 12 shipments were the start of a great partnership between AAPOS and Medical Bridges.”
