MENNONITE GENERAL HOSPITAL
This is Mennonite Health System’s main hospital.
Located in Aibonito’s La Plata sector, this hospital
is characterized by its excellent services. Although
it mainly serves the municipalities of Aibonito, Barranquitas,
Orocovis, and Coamo, the hospital treats patients who
come from all over the island and other Caribbean destinations
seeking our specialized programs.
The hospital is known to have one of the Caribbean’s
best orthopedic programs for hip and knee replacement.
In addition to its top-notch services, the hospital
offers a “special mystique” that captures
the attention of both patients and visitors: an ambiance
of simplicity and love created by a diligent staff
whose intention focuses on serving our patients.
Some people describe this mystique as a result or
byproduct of the love spread by our founders, who came
from different parts of the United States as missionaries
to serve the country folk of La Plata sector and provided
voluntary services with no remuneration.
Our coworkers, our physicians and our volunteers share
this same life and service philosophy that is deeply
treasured by our institution’s Board of Directors.
Aibonito’s Mennonite General Hospital features
a 96-member Medical Faculty. Most of them live in our
area and share our community’s way of life within
a small country town. The town of Aibonito is known
both as “Puerto Rico’s Garden” and “Puerto
Rico’s Switzerland” thanks to its beautiful
surroundings and temperate climate. Aibonito has a
population of 27,000 inhabitants and its annual June
Festival of Flowers is quite famous throughout the
