Clinic building Inagurated

  The community of Empalme de Boaco celebrated the opening of the new clinic building this past April 7th 2009.  Members from various churches, local government officials and the community came together to give thanks to God in a beautiful ceremony at the new clinic building.  After an overview of the past 2 years, a wall plaque was unveiled and the Community Medical Dispensary “Dr. Fernando Jimenez Lopez” was officially inagurated.   Santiago Juncadella, president of La Luz de Cristo Ministries, presented participants of the 5 mission trips taken so far to Empalme de Boaco with a certificate of recognition for their service.   A short folkloric program was followed by a communal meal and fellowship.  The clinic has 3 private examining rooms, a pharmacy/dispensary, 1 waiting area and a large open area.  During the spring break, a medical/dental team from the USA worked in the new clinic and 535 patients received free medical and dental care.  The clinic is opened 5 days a week and it is staffed by a national physician and a nurse assistant.  Medical records are kept for each patient on file to promote continuity of care.  So far, the clinic has over 2,500 active patients.   

If you are interested in participating in a short term medical mission trip or would like to make a financial contribution please contact Beatriz Juncadella, MD at or make your contribution through this web site.
