Pacífica Salud Hospital Punta Pacífica: Strengthening Stroke and Pediatric Emergency Care in Panama

Pacífica Salud Hospital Punta Pacífica (HPP) sought our hospital consulting services to elevate its stroke care and expand its pediatric emergency care, strengthening its ability in these areas to offer higher health care quality supported by the right clinical operations infrastructure and protocols. After collaborating with our stroke and emergency medicine experts, HPP was able to address both critical needs. 

How We Work Together

  • Opened the first pediatric emergency department in a private health care facility in Panama — specifically tailored to the needs of young patients and their families.

  • Consult in the development of new clinical programs and the expansion of clinical services.

  • Provide training to enhance leadership skills for physicians, nurses, other clinicians and administrators.

  • Developed new stroke policies and protocols to achieve Joint Commission International Primary Stroke Center Certification.
  • Identify opportunities to enhance patient safety, optimize clinical quality and operational efficiency, and improve care delivery.
  • Identify and implement knowledge transfer opportunities for executives, clinicians and staff, including observerships, continuing medical education, symposia and video lectures.

Congratulations Pacífica Salud Hospital Punta Pacífica
