This is my first post here. I have been on the site many times, very addicting, to look for places to stay for our visit in July. Anyway, does anyone have contact info for local hospitals? I have some medical supplies that I would like to bring and donate. The supplies are for Interventional Radiology procedures (i.e.- angioplasty, angiogram catheters and so on). To be honest, I don't know if these type procedures are even performed on Ambergris Caye. Thanks in advance for your replies.

To the best of my knowledge these types of procedures are not performed on the island. To be frank we don't even perform c-sections here.

Of course the supplies will probably be welcomed at the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital located in Belize City.

Hopefully somebody will post the relevant contact info.

One of your best avenues would be through the Lions Club....they have been involved in Health Care significantly. You could write and inquire if they could direct you to the Belize City Lions Club.

Dr Hildago at Universal Hospital is a wonderful cardiologist and would be happy to tell you where the most need is and what procedures are done in Belize. I would call his office directly at....oops I just tried to look up his number and realized that my phone book is 2005.

Thanks PK. If you come across his number, or even better, his email or website, please let me know. I probably have 100K worth of supplies that could be very beneficial.
