Had to go to the emergency room on Sunday.  They had no staff to run the equipment for the necessary tests and only one doctor who had to call another doctor because she didn't know what to do about a very simple case.  The doctor said " you shouldn't come on Sunday's because we have very little staff.  So...we will try to not get injured on a Sunday!

just a heads up if you need a doctor on Sunday's the Ajijic clinic may be a better choices

All days are better at Ajijic Clinic, they have full staff 24/7...

And you can not beat the prices,  it is a little gem of a hospital and if only it was better managed would be a gold mine...one or two specialist there that need to be avoided like the plague..

Bottom line is the best hospital care is still in GDL.  When you look at it impartially, though, the care available here is far higher than usually found in such small population centers located adjacent to a major city.

The new hospital on the Libramiento looks close to open.  I hope it will conform more to what is considered a hospital then the San Antonio Hospital/Maskaras Clinic. I worked for over 30 years in a hospital.  That pension allows me to live here.

OK, let me have it.

My family has had three emergencies treated at the Ajijic Clinic/Hospital and was very pleased with two of the outcomes.  The third was a dislocated shoulder where a specialist was brought in from Guadalajara who greately overcharged for his services...but at least he did the job.

I think I'd choose it again rather than the hospital in S.A. after hearing the reports from posters.

Ready for incoming? Looks like you have been here for at least a week. Takes about that long to rile up the "gang". :D

We have had nothing but good experiences at SAT hospital. Please don't even compare it to the former Maskaras clinic nor Ajijic clinic. Big difference between a REAL hospital and mere clinics. Judging from most of the posts on here, it has been made quite clear that SAT is good at what they do for a small hospital. and I for one am glad they are here. Good luck clinic users!

We've had to visit the SAT hospital for emergencies twice in the past year. One was minor; the other involved surgery and a multiple day hospitalization. Each time, the care and service was excellent and the facilities were very clean. The overall costs were a bit higher than other options in the area and Guadalajara. I don't know that it would be my first choice for an elective or scheduled procedure, but I'm glad to have it around as an option.

There seems to be trend that the "specialist's" that Dr. R recommends are "expensive". Was this one his or your selection?

We went to the San Antonio Hospital one night and we were well taken care of. We have also been to the Ajijic Clinic and were well taken care of there too.
