Limón, Nicaragua: Juan Munoz, the executive director of The Roberto Clemente Health Clinic, took his annual trip to the clinic late last July. The purpose of the visit was to facilitate the transition of management, evaluate the clinic’s performance and provide feedback to support the local staff.
The clinic hosted a farewell gathering for the outgoing manager who led the clinic to achieve many goals during his six year tenure. Likewise, they welcomed the new administrative manager who is proving to be an asset to the clinic.
The team held their monthly meeting which was a huge success. Each area of the clinic presented their achievements and progress reports. Feedback and ideas were provided with the goal of improving the clinic’s mission for the future. The visit also included team building activities and Mr. Munoz shared techniques for healthy eating. Everybody appreciated the training and vowed to put their new knowledge into action.
Additionally, Mr. Munoz and a group of volunteers started their Nicaraguan version of the famous TV show, Kitchen Crashers. They upgraded the clinic’s kitchen by building new cabinets, a countertop and added a much needed refrigerator.
Mr. Munoz feels his trip was extremely rewarding because he was able to see the progress of the clinic face-to-face. He was pleased to see the new van being utilized to commute patients to the clinic. They also moved the existing pharmacy into a larger space and added an observation room. All of these developments will improve access to the pharmacy and provide more privacy for the patients.
The Roberto Clemente Health Clinic provides health care to over 12,000 underprivileged Nicaraguans per year. The clinic provides general and emergency medical care, dental care, ambulatory surgery, lab work, and preventative health education. The clinic also provides volunteer opportunities for health professionals and students of all levels. Volunteering at The Roberto Clemente Health Clinic is the perfect way to combine benevolence with medical training.
