By Oliver Pérez, Voice of Nosara/QCostarica

The two operating rooms of the Anexion hospital have been opened since November 27th, confirmed Juan Jose Li Kam, director of the medical center.

Li Kam said that during the time that the rooms were closed, patients were sent to the operating rooms of the hospital in Liberia and in Cañas, but it will no longer be necessary to transfer patients.

“The motive of the closure was that the two air conditioners had finished their usefulness and were no longer functioning as they should be. In addition the ceiling and floor, as well as some cabinet drawers were deteriorated, so the closure was inevitable and we had to condition a hall as an operating room to attend to emergency cases there such as unscheduled cesareans and others, and any other surgeries had to be performed by our staff in the Enrique Baltodano of Liberia and in Cañas. There they did a little more than 100 operations,” related Li Kam.

To solve the problem, three air conditioners were brought from San Vicente de Paul hospital in Heredia, and support was given by the Gerencias de Infraestructura y Medica (Medical and Infrastructure Managers).
