Yucatecans can now access the new osteopathic services at the Osteopathy Clinic of the Dr. Augustin O’Horán Hospital in Merida, which reinforce the processes of preventive medicine and allow treating patients holistically.
During the inauguration of the new space, on Monday Nov. 23, Governor Rolando Zapata Bello said it consolidates public health policies promoted by the State Government, whose focus is prevention, timely diagnosis and promotion of self-care among the population.
The new Osteopathic Clinic is the first in Mexico that is located within a public hospital, according to the Government of Yucatan.
In the presence of the rector of the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University, William Strampel, Zapata said the clinic will establish Yucatan as the capital of such services in the region and integrates actions recently made in the field, such as the construction of Maternity Hospital of Merida which is already underway.
Zapata said: “The goal of this project is to provide medical services to patients of ‘O’Horán’ Hospital and other public complementary units which are currently offered. Osteopathy Clinic ‘O’Horán’ Hospital is an action that will benefit hundreds of patients and their families who daily come to these facilities for medical care, in search of answers, in search of certainty.”
In a speech, Strampel reiterated the commitment of the University to maintain a strong partnership with the State Government to continue strengthening infrastructure as well as departments, positively impacting Yucatan and all southeast Mexico and people who are in search of quality care.
What is osteopathy?
The head of the Ministry of Health of Yucatán (SSY), Jorge Eduardo Mendoza Mézquita, reported that osteopathy is a branch of medicine that is based on the principle that the history of disease and physical trauma are written in the body structure.
Therefore, specialists in this aspect, as allopathic doctors, study for a medical career, but at the end they receive several additional hours of practical training to develop manual skills, in addition to extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system.
Osteopathy Clinic “O’Horán”, first of its kind in a public hospital in the country, is the result of a collaboration agreement between the Government of Yucatan and Michigan State University. It has an area of patient care, reception and offices with special equipment for the treatment of manipulation that will be offered there.
The equipment comes from a donation made by the academic institution, while the furniture to be used is the product of the efforts of the Administration of the Patrimony of Public Welfare.
Currently, the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University is recognized as one of the most important United States. This specialty is considered one of the best practices of preventive treatment, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)
