Hospital La Catolica, San Jose, Costa Rica:

Hospital La CatolicaProvides Top Quality Treatment at Affordable Rates:

This medical center was known as Clí­nica Católica for about 26 years. During the next seventeen years, the name underwent several changes, until it was changed to Hospital Clí­nica Católica de la Purisima Concepción Association. It is commonly known as Hospital La Catolica, but it can be referred to by any of its previous names by locals. Therefore, don’t be confused if you are in Costa Rica receiving treatment and you hear the facility referred to by different names.

In 2006, an forward-looking process of changes in administration and infrastructure began, and the medical center was transformed into a new, unique, and modern concept in medical services in the fabulous, lush, tropical country of Costa Rica.  While this was going on, it was given the name by which it is known today, Hospital Hotel La Católica, or Hospital La Catolica for short.

Hospital La Catolica Provides Top Quality Treatment at Affordable Rates:

On August 16, 2007,  Certification of Hospital Empowerment for a period of 5 years was obtained by this facility. In addition, the medical center has achieved accreditation from the Joint Commission International, the international branch of The Joint Commission (USA); whose mission is to improve the quality of health care throughout international community.

For over 75 years, the Joint Commission and its predecessor organization have dedicated themselves to improving the safety, security, and quality of health care services throughout the world. The JCI evaluates approximately 16 thousand health care facilities and programs through a voluntary accreditation process, and this medical center is one of the health care centers evaluated by the JCI.

The hospital has a one-of-a-kind oxygenation system (with three hyperbaric chambers) in the country. This furthers the institution’s commitment to always improve its services through the latest technology, equipment and treatment techniques.

Since this medical institution complies with national and international standards and regulations for quality, and patient safety, the Health Ministry, a part of the Costa Rican Government, has submitted the medical center for a second accreditation with the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation. This Costa Rican medical center is currently being evaluated by the Canadian Council, and accreditation is expected at any time.
