Karl Heusner Still in ‘Emergency’ Mode

The Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital Authority remains in emergency mode according to the hospital’s board. Since mid-March, the national referral hospital had to limit services due to structural damage to the ceiling. A team of visiting Mexican experts evaluated the damages and deemed that the hospital could operate in the areas not affected. Today, the K.H.M.H. confirmed that it is still not yet functioning to its full capacity as it continues to carry out urgent structural work to the facility. Elective services have been postponed and an abbreviated clinic schedule is being observed.  The K.H.M.H. also points out that it is not performing private cases and that all payments for services should only be made to cashiers at the facility. This is in reference, we understand, for the continued under the table payments to certain doctors for private medical services conducted within the facility.
