Solar PV Hospital "Serafin Montana Cuellar"

San Luis de la Vereda, Tolima Colombia

The Serafin Montana Cuellar Hospital is one of the clinics located in San Luis de la Vereda and has all the enthusiasm as well as the specialists that will help reduce the mortality figures. The area of San Luis is 55 minutes from Ibagué and has a population of approximately five thousand inhabitants, 65% of whom are elderly, the urban area accounts for 0.31% of the population and 99.69% of the rural sector.

However, the level of care is minimal and the mortality rate is low, because they do not have the quality of energy to maintain stable incubators and other medical equipment.

The hospital is a type 3 hospital where the level of care is the lowest and the mortality rate is low because it does not have the power quality to maintain incubators and other medical equipment stably.

What is the cause about?

San Luis de la Vereda, despite being a beautiful place nestled in nature, presents an alarming situation. More than 50% of the population is in “extreme poverty”, they do not have the resources to meet their basic food needs. This represents a decrease in the quality of life and the inadequate development of their social and emotional faculties.

This is reflected in birth and mortality statistics. The Government of Tolima has reported that there are low birth rates and high mortality rates, with a predominance of the adult and elderly population and with a significant incidence also in children under 1 year of age.

One of the factors involved in this problem is the health sector, since the few hospitals that exist do not have the specialized medical equipment or the adequate level of energy to operate them and provide quality service to patients.

Our goal is to stabilize power, upgrade medical equipment and lower mortality in San Luis de la Vereda. To be able to provide the children and the elderly of San Luis with the stability required to maintain a dignified life free of dangers that can be corrected by improving the quality of energy.
