A week of Surgery

Saturday, when OB/Gyn Bill Chun and his family and friends pulled into Santiago Atitlán, they didn’t go to their vacation rental, instead they pulled directly to the emergency room door so that he could scrub for surgery. Aklax the van driver had received a phone call requesting that Dr. Chun and his co-worker, surgeon Eduardo Menor ccome directly to HA to scrub for a complicated C-sec.  Sunday they saw more than 40 patients who hoped to receive care and Monday morning another surprise when a ruptured appendix presented in the Emergency Room. “I am so impressed with the Hospitalito and the operating room staff. I only had to ask once. At home it can take an hour between surgeries to clean the operating room, it went much faster here. I congratulate the Hospitalito on a great operation.” In this photo are OB/Gyn Dr. Chun his wife Karen Sweeney-Chun a 2006 Hospitalito PA volunteer and surgeon Dr. Eduardo Menor.
