Introduction

Peggy Stranges

In 2001, after 14 years of coordinating volunteer medical and dental mission teams to Honduras, Peggy Stranges RN permanently relocated to the island of Roatan. As a nursing volunteer on Roatan, Peggy was acutely aware of the critical need for health services and made it her goal to help the people of Roatan to obtain accessible medical services. Clínica Esperanza started at the kitchen table of Nurse Peggy. Over the years, it expanded, first, to the apartment beneath her home, then to 4 rooms at the Son Rise Calvary Church, and finally into a dedicated, first-class freestanding hospital in Sandy Bay. Peggy Stranges has given her life to building “Hospital Ms. Peggy.”

 

Clinica Esperanza

Clinica Esperanza provides low-cost/no cost medical care to the people of Roatan. At the medical clinic and  hospital, people can receive services from the walk-in medical clinic, women’s health center, pediatrics, birthing center, dental clinic including a laboratory and pharmacy. The clinic also provides outreach clinics, community health education programs, and school health screenings for vision and oral health.

The Clinic is located in Sandy Bay and all people are welcome. The Clinic treats approximately 80-100 patients in a typical day usually about 60% adults and 40% children. It operates five days per week, starting at 7:30am until 6:00pm. More than 3,500 patients consider the Clinic to be their primary medical care provider. Thus far, more than 65,000 patients have been treated in the Clinic.

Due to the limited number of medical facilities available, patients have come from all over the island and the mainland to seek treatment or medications The Clinic provides a needed service to people who would otherwise likely not seek treatment due to costs and the crowded condition of the local public hospital.

Clinica Esperanza is a member of the Honduran Fellowship Of Missionaries and Ministries.
