The general hospital provides care 365 days a year and will be open on Sept. 15 & 16th. During the anniversary of the declaration of Mexican Independence, there will be three doctors working the shift from 7am to 7pm and two doctors working from 7pm to 7am. The director said the community can be assured that they can go to the hospital for any medical needs and any irregularities should be reported in writing, and in this way bad service can be combated.  It is reported that beneficiaries of the Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS) and of the Instituto de Seguridad & Servicios Sociales de los Trabajadores del Estado (ISSSTE) will have coverage for their medical needs also.

NEED DIABETES SUPPLIES FOR OCTOBER DIABETES CLINIC: We have been doing Diabetes Clinics on Isla Mujeres for five years, with more local residents participating annually. This is a joint project of bilingual social workers, nurses, and other health care professionals originally from the USA, working with Isleno community partners. Diabetes is now the primary cause of death in Mexico.
We are in great need of donations of glucometers and strips, specifically these brands: Contour, Contour Next and OneTouch. Many doctor's offices, clinics and hospitals discard strips that are almost expired. Strips are actually still effective for at least a year after expiration dates so often those are the ones that are most often donated. If you have any contact with medical professionals or pharmaceutical reps, you can often get current supplies. We can also use lancets, lancet devices, alcohol pads, and syringes.
The next clinic will be in October 2014. Contact Karen Rosenberg at or Kathy Ennis at or FB either of us. We accept monetary donations too and will buy strips to bring down.
