Hospital Antonio Lorena

View of main entrance to Hospital Antonio Lorena

There are 3 main hospitals within Cuzco, 2 are public and 1 is more private.  One of the two public hospitals, which is older and in a much poorer part of town (Santiago District) is called Hospital Antonio Lorena.  This hospital offers a variety of outpatient clinical services including cardiology, pediatrics, neurology, etc., but also houses several inpatient wards.  Interestingly, many of the inpatient wards are separate buildings that are located in an open area behind the main building (see pictures below).  Each building or ward has about 30 hospital beds.  Hospital Antonio Lorena, as well as the other public hospital, called Hospital Regional, are available to all of the people in Cuzco, regardless if they have any insurance.  Both hospitals provide care free of charges…the only problem is that the facilities are not as modern or technological advanced as the private hospital (Hospital de Salud) and there are longer waiting times.

There are a lot of interesting cases that come to Hospital Antonio Lorena, most of the patients have a low socio-economic status, and minimal or no insurance.  As a foreign medical student, you can come do a month long rotation in whatever service you would like, after providing some documentation as well as a $100 tuition (per month).

    I love your website! I read all the pages :) I have a question about the hospital Antonio Lorena :) I’ll go in Cuzco during three months this year and I want to do a period of practice in this hospital (I’m in a nurse school in Switzerland) and I sent a message in their web site but I don’t still have an answer. Do you know how to concat them otherwise? Do you have a contact on place or a phone number??

    Thank you for your answer, I look forward to read it!

  16. You should keep the correct distance between the transmitting antenna
    and the internal antenna. Actiontec’s My – Wireless – TV comes with everything
    you need to set up one transmitter and receiver, including the HDMI cables,
    though the one metre cables are a tad short for my liking.

    Knowing what each piece of hardware does will allow you to determine
    what you need to purchase. Adding a high gain or directional antenna will also help better utilize your router, especially if your router is not in a
    central location.
