The Social Security hospital is obviously where those with social security benefits go. I have an appointment there to start some physical therapy for some compressed vertebras and it is supposed to have the most equipment to support this therapy. I made the appointment at the end of September and my appointment for consultation is in December. I also understand that this hospital is the best equipped with life saving equipment. I am not anxious to test it out. This is a Google map of the Hospital’s Location.
Just down the road is the new Children’s Hospital. This is another hospital that I do not have any need to visit. Well that is not entirely true. I understand that that they have a ward for critically ill children and have been looking for a way to buy a television for these kiddos. I have been meaning to go look at the location and consider buying the TV for them.
Here is Mae Lewis hospital. It has a very good reputation and a lot of good resident doctors. I took a tour through this hospital when I was making the decision to move to Panama.
This is Chiriqui Hospital. It also has a good reputation and a lot of good doctors. I have seen two doctors here and both spoke good English. Finding English-speaking doctors is no problem in David. Their receptionist speaking English is another question. I have yet to talk to a receptionist that has spoken English.
