Hospitals Escuela and San Felipe are the two teaching hospitals for the University Nacional Autonom de Honduras in the capital city, Tegucigalpa. Hospital Escuela, an 1800-bed teaching hospital and its smaller partner, Hospital San Felipe, offer all medical and surgical specialties including residency training.
Team participants will work alongside Honduran surgeons, surgical residents, anesthesiologists, operating room nurses, and other hospital staff to partner with and offer training in surgical procedures that allow them to advance their skills and provide an increased level of care after the team departs. Teams often provide advanced equipment such as arthroscopy and laparoscopy, train the surgeons in appropriate use, then leave the equipment with the hospital, having taught the personnel "how to fish". There is ample opportunity for one to one "live out their faith" as they are observed moving about the hospital.
The team has an active prayer ministry within the hospital, often called "the Heart of the Team". Members of the prayer team make daily rounds visiting patients and their families throughout the hospital offering physical and spiritual hope through prayer and by providing small items for personal hygiene, Spanish Bibles, toys for children, and praying for particular needs.
Typically the May team will have a group that goes to the mountain to do construction projects.
Teams are made up of surgeons, operating room nurses and technicians, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, pastors, and others who wish to use their skills in the O.R. and hospital to serve the less fortunate of Honduras. We also encourage residents, medical and pre-medical students to apply who are interested in exploring medical missions. Even non-medical personnel are needed to help with logistical support and to serve on the prayer team.
Come and serve with us as we join with the Lord in the work He is doing in Honduras. It may not always be comfortable, but you will be blessed.
