Through the Hospital Paz Mundo, located directly at the Center, the local population of the Sololá and Concepción region has access to basic, western-standard quality medical care.
Altogether, the hospital team consists of 4 physicians, 6 nurses and some additional administrative volunteer staff responsible for the day-to-day operation of the hospital and associated social programs.
The on-site management of the hospital is the responsibility of a very competent and dedicated local physician, Dr.Karla Mogollón. Over the last ten years ,the President of the Peace Foundation, Norbert Muigg, Austria – Guatemala, Daniel Muigg, Barcelona and his wife, Dr. Estela Llado have helped to build a professional team of local, reliable staff. Their ability to analyze and understand the local needs was and is the basis for the strategic orientation of our projects.
The staff members treat patients on an out-patient basis and, if necessary, also on an in-patient basis. Although the hospital PAZ MUNDO is accessible to the entire indigenous population of the Sololá region, impoverished women and children are the focus of the team. Particular emphasis is placed on the therapeutic treatment of people with disabilities. The hospital is the only therapeutic facility for the disabled in the highlands of Guatemala
