Dear Donor, please receive a warm greeting. We at the Grupo Puntacana Foundation truly appreciate your contribution.
We are able to serve quality health care services to thousands of children living in the underserved communities of the Punta Cana region because of supporters like you.
We are grateful that so many generous souls are supporting our cause. Thank you for helping us save precious lives.
Currently 100% of the medical services are available and they are being demanded by the population.
Nowadays the clinic continues offering health prevention programs, outpatient consultations, dental care, vaccination, emergency, laboratory, nutrition program (together with UNICEF and “Sanar una Nación”), pharmacy services, staff training program.
The x ray service is already available given that the new technical requirements of the health authorities are complete.
The patient service hours are from 8:00am to 4:00 pm, from Monday to Friday, except the 24-hour emergency service (every day, including weekends and holidays).
The areas with the highest flow of patients are emergency, consultations, laboratory and vaccination.
From January 21 to February, 2022: 1078 patients came to the emergency room, 676 came for consultation, 449 patients came for vaccination, 393 patients came for laboratory service, 57 patients came to the dental unit and 3 patients came for sonography service.
Total of patients in that period: 2656
The most common medical cases in the last months: Respiratory infections , febrile syndrome, skin infections, injuries from external causes and gastrointestinal disorders.
There are still goals to achieve in this stage of the project:
- Purchase the missing medical equipment and furniture (3 diagnostic set consisting of ophthalmoscope y otoscope, 1 dental chair, 1 air sterilizer for the dental unit, 3 pediatric sphygmomanometer, among others)
- Increase the staff training programs
