Blood Donor Caravan
March 7

Did you know that Boquete Health and Hospice has a blood donor program?  Just call or WhatsApp 6590-2000 in English or Spanish.  Our blood drives help support the requests for blood needed in Chiriqui, and on March 7 we will bring donors to the blood bank at Hospital Regional.  Please see the flyer below, and let us know if you can donate blood that day.  Emergencies happen, or blood is required for an operation. WE NEED YOUR HELP so BHH can help you or your family if ever needed!  Thank you!  Blood Donor Team

BHH CPR Update

Boquete Health and Hospice’s CPR Training Course has received an overwhelming response from people in our community. We hit the 2020 New Year running with 3 classes scheduled to meet the need of the response. Thank you all.
Now we are looking for people that are willing to train to be the CPR instructors for future classes…English or bilingual speaking, we need both.  We are hoping to have enough instructors available so we can rotate the scheduled classes according to your scheduled needs and desires.
If you are free from any on-going neck, back or knee problems and can get up and down without dizziness or lightheadedness, please consider joining BHH CPR Instructor Training Program. You will receive the training you need to assist in the CPR classes.
Contact BHH if you are interested – info@boquetehealth.org
Here’s to continued success in reaching our community’s needs.

Message from the President

It is with great joy that I welcome our newest members who attended the three-day training session held January 20, 22 and 24.  16 people completed the training, learning, among other things, about the organization, participated in a high-level medical training (including how to assist patients to move safely), an overview of patient care and the importance of maintaining patient confidentiality.

We have increased our membership with nurses, a doctor, a social worker, a chaplain, health care administrators and organizers as well as lovers of sailing, diving, dogs, music, cooking and the arts.
