The Hospital General San Francisco, under the direction of Dr. Reynaldo Saucedo y Andrade, is the largest regional facility between Puerto Vallarta and Tepic. This would be a remarkable facility for a small town of 2,200 people, in any country. The hospital has at its service 38 physicians, 23 of whom are specialists in fields such as:
- Internal medicine
- Surgery and anesthesiology
- Obstetrics and gynecology
- Emergency medicine
60% of Hospital General San Francisco physicians speak English. Payments (which are moderate by US standards) are on a sliding scale based, in part, on socioeconomic studies.
The hospital can accommodate 70 visits in the morning and 20 in the afternoon, while also taking care of 39 acute-care patients. Drop-in wait times average 5-10 minutes for acute care, 30 minutes for a consultation, and 50-60 minutes to see a specialist. The phone number for the hospital is (322) 258-407
