Our largest focus area, evidently, health care. For many years, we have been providing medical care to millions of people in need.
We have a specialized network of hospitals, where over five million people receive medical care each year. Our hospitals’ medical staff includes highly trained professionals in many different medical health areas such as Pediatrics, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Psychiatry, Cardiology, Neurology, etc. This network has allowed us to provide health care to people from all over the country, especially rural areas where there is a lack of adequate medical services, regardless of race, religion or sexual preference.
We are constantly training our staff, and equipping our hospitals with the latest, state-of-the-art medical technology, which puts us at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation of Ecuadorian health care. All of this, to provide high-level health care, with quality and warmth.
At our hospitals, people get a second chance to live and thrive. From newborns to the elderly, every person who comes to our hospitals (Hospital Luis Vernaza, Hospital de Niños Dr. Roberto Gilbert E., Hospital Gineco-obstétrico Enrique C. Sotomayor and Instituto de Neurociencias) receives medical care at affordable subsidized prices or completely free under certain circumstances. All the aforementioned hospitals were the first in their class to receive the ISO 9001:2008 international Quality Management System certification. This certifies that all our medical facilities comply with international quality standards. This, along with our scientific achievements and modern technology, has earned our hospitals the honor of being recognized, locally and abroad, as some of the best in Ecuador. Nevertheless, we are constantly improving, always looking to give the best to our patients.
