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.
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
- Consulted on designing health care facilities for the 24/7 pediatric emergency department. Hospital planning and hospital design included selecting equipment, standardizing care, optimizing patient flow and efficiency, and ensuring the new unit had the right equipment and supplies.
- Developed new stroke policies and protocols to achieve Joint Commission International Primary Stroke Center Certification.
