We received the visit of Dr. Paolo Petralia, Director of the Gaslini Pediatric Hospital, accompanied by Paola Cuneo, Mónica Mutti and Orietta Peitrobelli, personnel responsible for the management of the Children of Christ Orphanage in the city of La Romana.
The purpose of this visit was to reinforce the collaboration held since 2017 with the Ibero-American University (UNIBE), the Children of Christ Orphanage, the Giannina Gaslini Institute in Genoa, Italy and our hospital, through which quality medical care is promoted to the children who reside in the orphanage and to the population of the sector.
As part of the collaboration, we offer medical services through the rotation of their resident doctors of Family Medicine, interconsultations and referrals; while the Giannina Gaslini Institute supports medical conferences and the care of complex cases, and promotes the exchange between medical and nursing staff between both institutions, in the field of training, human resources training and research.
These personalities were received by Dr. Nepomuceno Mejía, Senior Manager of the Knowledge and Innovation Management Center; Lic. Desiree Diez, Deputy Director of Operations; Lic. Dashira Martínez, Communications Manager; Dr. Henry Quezada, Senior Clinical and Ambulatory Management Manager and the Teaching Department team headed by Dr. Violeta González, Manager and doctors Ysabela Díaz, Patricia Nina and Jocelyn Torres, of the Residency Program of Family and Community Medicine.
