The clinic work began under the administration of Tom and Carol Jeffries with the help of FAME (www.fameworld.org)
It has undergone several expansions since then, and God continues to add to the areas of service provided...from general medicine, optometry, dentistry, OBGYN, laboratory, pediatrics, and hopefully more to come in the near future.
The focus is on providing quality medical care that would otherwise not be affordable to those in our area, care that often at any price is not close at hand. We see patients from our general area, but often from word of mouth we see patients from a great distance as well.
All the staff is Honduran save for our staff optometrist, Dr. Valerie Colby, who is from the USA. And over the past few years, she has trained two Honduran MDs to practice optometry as well.
Starting from a small rented house, to a 1,200 square foot building, to a 4,000' building, to now adding a second story onto that building, the clinic has improved and added services along the way and prayerfully will be able to do that into the future as well as God provides and directs!
Our long term goal is to convert the clinic into a hospital that can do surgery. We are currently working on plans to begin working in that direction!
Our focus is on providing the best care possible, and making it clear we are able to do so only by Christ to all that come.
