Prior to CAMO’s involvement, the second busiest health center in Honduras was suffering major health issues of its own. Big slabs of concrete continually fell on the 11 small treatment areas. With no running water and no sewage system, the excrements of the day ran onto the ground and into the center of the city, regularly putting up to 500 patients and 56 employees at risk.
The renovation of this facility started in October of 2012 and was completed by October 31, 2014 with an investment of over $650,000. To date, it is the largest, most modern public health center in Honduras. With over 500 services a day, the public health center has 37 treatment areas and also houses four of CAMO’s programs including cervical cancer, ultrasound, mammography and general x-ray services. In addition, this center offers dental, pharmacy, laboratory, prenatal care, planned parenting, AIDS counseling, pediatric clinics, a vaccination program, and general medicine among other services.
