The Los Cabos area is growing and expanding at an impressive rate. The once sleepy fishing village is maturing, all the while keeping the character and traditional elements that continue to draw visitors from all over the world. As the area grows, a number of exceptional services have arrived including H+ Hospital. Located in the Plaza de Koral Center, just minutes from the Del Mar communities of Villas Del Mar and Espiritu. We recently were able to sit down with Jon Kutz, Managing Partner and Emiliano Zedillo, Development Director, of H+ to learn more about the hospital and their inaugural open heart surgery.

H+ Hospital successfully performed its first open heart surgery and the patient, a 61-year-old Canadian resident of Cabo for more than 20 years, is doing well and recovering as expected. The patient had a mechanical heart valve placed more than 15 years ago and it became infected and ultimately put the patient’s his health and life at risk. The patient’s rare condition was detected promptly upon arrival at H+.

“The patient’s diagnosis and treatment was conducted by a multidisciplinary group of specialists, led by the Cardiac Surgery Team, and was able to control both the infection and the major complications,” said Jon.

The 5-hour open heart surgery was performed June 7th and the procedure was a complete success. In fact, the patient was awake and off the ventilator a few hours after surgery.

“Complex surgeries such this one require a sophisticated infrastructure and a highly experienced multidisciplinary team, two factors available at the H+ Hospital,” Jon explained. “From diagnoses to after-care, patient care and safety is of utmost importance and completely in line with the standard of care guidelines in the U.S. and Canada.”

Routine screening for heart disease, along with highly specialized medical-surgical team is now available at the H+ Hospital.

With the unmatched beauty of the Mexican Pacific as a background, the H+ Hospital is the best option in Cabo for treating any cardiovascular condition, the leading cause of death worldwide.

“H+ Hospital is distinguished by its state-of-the-art technology, compassionate bilingual professionals, and unparalleled healthcare,” said Emiliano. “We are confident that our patients will receive competent, knowledgeable, and efficient care, every single time. ”
