How Can a Hospital in an Impoverished Villlage be 100% Self-Sustaining?

Since 2007, Hospital Pedro Vicente Maldonado, in rural Ecuador, has been self-sustaining thanks to Andean Health’s community partnerships. This model has been so successful, that AHD plans to replicate the model in new locations. These sites then are used to train Ecuador’s health workforce and the health care leaders of tomorrow.

Ecuador's Social Security pays more than what Hospital PVM typically charges for certain services.  This allows us to cross-subsidize other nonpaying patients.
