Heart Care International (HCI) first met Dr. Gatián in 1994. He became the main local driver for all the HCI missions in Guatemala. With the help and support of his friends and family, Dr. Gaitan ran all the in-country logistics required to host HCI cardiac missions. The first couple of missions were done at the Roosvelt Hospital in Guatemala City. This is a public hospital affiliated with the University of San Carlos School of Medicine. The following HCI missions were hosted at the Centro Médico Militar de Guatemala which serves the general public as well as the families of military personnel. During the last years of HCI’s work in Guatemala, HCI partnered up with UNICAR, always through Dr. Gaitan’s connections.
