PRESS RELEASE – The skill and success rates of the surgical teams at Health City Cayman Islands are well known in medical circles in the Caribbean, but it is their humanitarian outreach that is touching lives in South America.
Thanks to the international hospital’s compassion-based mission to provide exceptional care to all, including the poor and vulnerable, two children from Bolivia whose parents could not afford the cost of pediatric cardiac surgery in their country have now received the lifesaving treatment.
The high elevation of Bolivia in the Andes mountain range complicates the lives of those suffering from heart and lung problems, and nearly 40 out of 1,000 Bolivian children die every year due to a lack of medical attention.
“Health City Cayman Islands was inspired to help these two young boys,” said Dr. Chandy Abraham, CEO and Medical Director of the two-year old Caribbean hospital, “but we could not have done so without the dedicated staff of Samaritan’s Purse and Have a Heart Cayman Islands.”
