The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City issued the following news release on Friday June 10, 2016:
MEXICO CITY — The U.S. Embassy in Mexico, through its Agency for International Development (USAID), is raising the level of medical care in Mexico. USAID, through its Office of American Schools’ and Hospital Abroad (ASHA) program, partnered with the American British Cowdray (ABC) Hospital to expand the capacity and the impact of the ABC Medical Simulation Center through the acquisition of human simulator equipment to train physicians and nurses in specialized treatment procedures.
The ABC Medical Simulation Center was funded by a $400,000, 2014 USAID/ASHA award, which was used to purchase three human simulators: Harvey, The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator, Simbionix’s URO Mentor and HystSim™ and TURPSim™.
ABC Hospital and USAID/Mexico held an event on June 9 at ABC Hospital to highlight the value of the new human simulator equipment. USAID/Mexico Mission Director, Dick Goughnour, delivered remarks at the event. “USAID is honored to partner with ABC hospital and the addition of the new human simulators is another step to ensuring high-quality health care,” said Goughnour.
“The work that American British Cowdray Hospital is doing is incredible and the new Simulation Center will allow them to continue to train the highest quality of physicians and nurses,” says USAID/Washington’s ASHA Director Katherine Crawford. “They are raising the standard of care to unrivaled levels in Mexico.”
ABC Hospital maintains a relationship with Texas Children’s Hospital on a number of patient and referral and capacity building initiatives. ABC also has an initiative to reach out to other public and private hospitals in Mexico to share best practices and to coach them on obtaining Joint Commission International Quality Certification.
USAID has partnered with ABC Hospital since 1984 to increase the level of healthcare in Mexico.
