HCI launches its first surgical mission in Chiapas, Mexico the week of September 28th 2015. With 46 team medical professionals traveling from across the US, Dominican Republic and Mexico, the children in Chiapas will be in great hands! This 5 year partnership has been strongly supported by local government officials, hospital administration and the in-country medical team. The team will perform heart surgeries on 10 – 15 children from remote locations surrounding Chiapas and will train the local medical team in the prescreening, surgical, and post operative care best practices.
