Medical Santo’s First Birthday
And we have already changed 2000 peoples lives
It is one year since our first patient came through the new doors of the Medical Santo clinic. We have had volunteer doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses, diabetes educators, pathologists, paramedics, physiotherapists and many more professionals assist us to Change Lives in Northern Vanuatu. We really appreciate the time and effort that these people have given. Well done every one!
In May, Medical Santo were requested by an insurance company to evacuate a young English girl who was suffering severe stomach pains. Working with the doctors and nurses at the Northern Provincial Hospital in Santo the patient was air lifted on a medivac flight and is receiving ongoing treatment. Her condition has stabilised and she is returning to England for treatment.

He was impressed with our facilities and thanked our staff for the services that Medical Santo is providing. His visit encouraged our staff to continue building on our medical services and the support of the Northern District Hospital.
