Johns Hopkins Helps Give Birth to a Hospital in South America

Johns Hopkins Medicine has helped thousands of patients deliver babies over the years. Now Hopkins has helped deliver another hospital, too.

Representatives from Johns Hopkins Medicine International consulted on the design of a 400-bed hospital that is being constructed on the outskirts of Cartagena, Colombia, in South America.

Cartagena is well known as an international tourist destination but did not have a medical center for visitors or residents. The hospital is the first phase of a larger community called Serena del Mar, or Serenity of the Ocean in Spanish.
