There are many emergencies here, because the main highway to Medellín and beyond passes through this area. Consequently, there are many accidents which occur and many victims arriving in this hospital. This is the hospital which also provides services to the populations of the municipalities of La Vega, Supatá, San Francisco, Villeta, Vergara and Nocaima in the Department of Cundinamarca, Colombia. It serves a population of approximately 80,000 inhabitants. A portable ultrasound machine will benefit greatly the needs of these people. Click for more info
