Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) Contributes to First Children's Burn Hospital in Central America
Date:8/25/2011

an Pedro Sula, where the equipment could be put to use almost immediately.

The children's burn institute will provide care for burn patients by restoring their physical and emotional health. It is comprised of several units, including one for pediatric surgery, one for burn care, a play room, a chapel and a recovery room. The pediatric surgery unit expects to treat more than 1,600 patients each year and the burn unit expects to treat more than 160 patients each year. The surgical unit will also alleviate the 12-month waiting period for pediatric surgeries, common in Honduran public hospitals.  

The Ruth Paz Foundation for the Children of Honduras, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underprivileged children, built the hospital on the Leonardo Martinez Hospital campus property donated by the Honduran government. CHS and Heineman concentrated their efforts on furnishing it, and numerous local foundations and organizations provided monetary gifts. The facility will service the entire country and beyond, and it will be open to patients regardless of the family's ability to pay.

Heineman, in partnership with Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute, has a four-decade-long history of providing medical assistance to underdeveloped countries. Over the past three years alone, with the help of Duke Kimbrell, a Gastonia industrialist, and led by Dr. Robicsek, Heineman also installed an up-to-date 14-bed Pediatric Intensive Care and Heart Catheterization Laboratory in San Pedro Sula. These projects have greatly increased access to healthcare throughout Honduras and have helped save hundreds of lives.
