Awards and Accolades:

   In 2015, the remodeling of the OR resulted in the loss of the PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) space. The Hospital didn't have resources to equip the new space. Mending Faces stepped in and donated a large air conditioner, beds, monitors, and regulators - more than $8,700 equipment so all surgical patients can receive the best care as they recover. Above is a picture of the Head of Hospital, Dr. Paul Macahilas, Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Vic Santamaria, Rotary Secretary, Bing Santamaria, Mission Pediatrician, Dr. Jaime Arnold, Mending Faces’ Liaison, Blesiah Cordova, RN plus many Rotary friends displaying the PACU Plaque after the turnover of equipment.
