Serving the people of Chiapas since 1969
Hospital San Carlos is situated at the entrance of the jungles of Chiapas, in the town of Altamirano. This nonprofit hospital primarily serves the low-income indigenous population in the region.
The hospital was founded in 1969 by the Dominican Mission to the Bishop of San Cristobal de Las Casas, Don Samuel Ruiz Garcia, at a time when health care in the region was absent. In 1976, the management of the hospital was transferred to St. Vincent de Paul's Daughters of Charity, who continue to manage the hospital today.
