This group was led by cardiovascular surgery physician, Dr. Luca Vricella, noting that experts continue to bring the country together to improve and strengthen the cardiovascular program at Children’s Hospital.
“We will bring in more specialists and work with the local staff. This hospital has a good plan with plenty of resources, and a very talented and enthusiastic staff,” he said.
Meanwhile anesthesiologist, Dr. Jackie Martin, said that they found a staff committed to the Costa Rican children.
“I was struck by the leadership and commitment of the hospital; we are very excited to form this plan. The Children’s Hospital surgeons will do a great job,” he said.
Costa Rican doctor, Dr. Javier Brenes, stressed that the presence of this group is a dream come true.
