Centro Medico Susan Hou
The Centro Medico Susan Hou (formally known as The Centro Medico Humberto Parra) is a clinic operating in the jungle of Bolivia entirely off of private donations and unpaid service of healthcare professionals. The clinic is approaching 18 years of providing free or nearly free medical care for the 15 surrounding agricultural communities.
Treating over 3,000 patients per year, the CMSH provides healthcare to agricultural workers who earn less than $3/day. The CMSH is one of the only healthcare providers for the population of these rainforest communities and provides healthcare to those who would otherwise go untreated.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀Established in 2001 by two Chicago physicians, Drs. Susan Hou and Mark Molitch, the clinic is funded by these generous doctors with some limited support from other donors.
Supplies such as medications, baby blankets, and Days for Girls hygiene kits have also been donated to the Centro Medico Susan Hou.
