CFHI is proud to announce the donation of a Macbook computer to one of our partner sites in Oaxaca, Mexico– the teaching department of Hospital Civil. The donation to the subdireccion de ensenanza department came after the hospital requested this equipment from CFHI as a useful tool in improving operations there. The replacement for the manual typewriter, also in the picture, is a welcome addition to this very busy facility.
The computer will serve in many capacities including logging various activities occurring within the department and in managing the coordination of medical residents working at Hospital Civil. In the photo above from left to right: CFHI Oaxaca Medical Director Dr. Tenorio, Dr. Gabriel Augustin Velasco, the head of Hospital Civil’s teaching department, and CFHI Program Manager Nick Penco, alongside the new computer. CFHI would like to thank the participants of our Global health Education programs as well as support from our donors in making such contributions possible.
Hospital Civil is an outstanding facility with a dedicated staff. CFHI has enjoyed a long relationship with this excellent teaching hospital. This municipal facility is an anchor of the community and has seen everything from the increase of chronic diseases, to the fallout of civil unrest. And Oaxaca was one of the initial detection points of the Novel H1N1 Virus this past year. We commend them on their quick and professional response to what was an unknown crisis. The quality of their work has helped to blaze the trail for everyone working to treat and stop this pandemic.
