Grand Opening of Clinica San Fernando Coronado
The long awaited opening of the San Fernando Clinic has finally arrived. As of today, October 25th 2008, it is open for business. The emergency room will be staffed 24 hours a day - 7 days a week with qualified medical personnel. This clinic is a first in the interior of Panama for a private hospital and will be evaluated as to its potential in other interior communities. The San Fernando Clinic is a wonderful addition to our community that will alleviate many of the emergency health concerns for those living and visiting the Pacific Beaches. The Open House was held on March 24th at 4 PM and included a ribbon cutting ceremony and a blessing from the Catholic Priest. After the ceremony, food and refreshments were served along with live music at the Club Ecuestre.
The bottom line for the residents of Coronado and the surrounding area is that you will be able to receive immediate emergency medical attention from their highly trained medical staff, right here in our own community. The clinic also offers outpatient services for people with chronic illnesses as well as those with immediate health concerns.
The San Fernando Clinic does not offer their own medical plan but is more than willing to work with both local and international medical plans. The price list for medical treatments has not been published yet. That information will be posted on this web site as soon as it is available.
Both Spanish and English will be spoken at the clinic. Sra. Cynthia de Cabassa indicated that they are looking for translators for other languages such as French or German. These people would be the communications link for medical emergencies involving non-Spanish or English speaking patients.
If you are in the area, stop by and have a look at the new Clinica San Fernando Coronado. This modern facility is a positive and important part of the future of Coronado.
