The Perfect Combination of Health and Holidays

Costa Rica is a place full of natural wonders, unique in the world, an oasis of lush natural beauty, richness and panoramic views. It is a peaceful, no-army land, with a strong economy, well-developed infrastructure and a highly skilled workforce in technology.

In addition to being a wonderful place to vacation, in recent years Costa Rica has become a favorite destination for thousands of tourists from the United States, Canada and Europe, who have saved a lot of money for surgeries than in their home country have a higher cost. Surgeries, medical check-ups and rehabilitation today represent an important attraction to offer a whole series of related services (lodging, transportation, beauty treatments, recovery and nutrition).

Hospital La Católica innovates with a unique concept in the country by transforming the period of hospitalization into a pleasant experience. It provides a comfortable environment so that the patient feels that he is not only in a hospital for medical care, but in a hotel.

Traveling to a country like Costa Rica to perform any medical intervention or procedure is not only more convenient in terms of price, but also the quality of medical services available for your care.

Advanced Medical Technology

In order to provide the best service and quality in all the procedures performed at the Hospital, we
have acquired the highest technology in medical equipment. Among our most recent acquisitions are:

The Digital Medical Imaging Service, which offers greater sharpness and resolution of images for diagnosis, both in X-ray, mammography and ultrasound. In addition, the 64-cut Computerized Tomography (CT) scanning service provides a state-of-the-art scanner, allowing you to analyze in a few seconds three-dimensional images with the best definition of any part of the body.

There is also a modern 1.5 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Equipment to observe internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints and tumors, among others. Another important acquisition is the Allura Xpert FD20 Angiograph, unique in the country, offering the latest image clarity and features used in the most advanced medical centers in the world for the specialties of:
Cardiology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Peripheral Vascular and Radiology Interventionist.

The Hospital puts at your disposal the Hyperbaric Oxygenation Center (exclusive service in Costa Rica with 4 single-seat cameras and a mono-plaza for 6 people simultaneously), where the patient breathes pure oxygen at a high pressure to cure some diseases and heal wounds, among others.

There are also modern laboratories, operating rooms, an Integrated Surgery Room with digital technology and a Surgical Microscope, with which highly complex surgeries can be performed, with minimal access to the body,

allowing less complications and a quick recovery.
We have a Quality and Safety Department formed by a group of doctors and nurses who supervise compliance with national and international policies, procedures and standards for patient safety.

We are aware of the importance in the continuous improvement within the institution and for that we comply with the demands and recommendations of organisms such as the Ministry of Health of Costa Rica and the Professional Associations.
