The Concept

The hospital is situated at 2,650 m above sea level in Curahuasi in the South Peruvian Andes, where it enjoys an excellent strategic location just off the highway connecting Cusco-Abancay-Lima.

750,000 people, primarily Quechua Indians, live within a three hour drive radius of this center of the ancient Inca culture. It is the objective of Diospi Suyana to offer comprehensive medical care to the Quechuas. The clinic is equipped with 55 beds, 4 operating theatres, an intensive care unit, labs and x-ray facilities and employs around 100 locals. The 50 or so non-indigenous members of staff are financially supported by friends at home. Construction began on May 24, 2005 and over 4,500 people took part in the inauguration celebration on 31 August 2007, including the First Lady of Peru, Pilar Nores de Garcia and Minister of Health, Dr. Carlos Gallejos. Since then a dental and an eye clinic have been added.

April 2012 saw the dedication of the Children´s House, which provides excellent facilities and equipment for the weekly work of the Diospi Suyana Kids’ Clubs.

The Diospi Suyana School broadens the scope of education. The school will be inaugurated on March 14, 2014 and together with the Kindergarten will teach up to 650 children.
