When I was first approached to join the Board of Directors of Clinica Verde I did the proper due diligence, visited their website, read all the background materials, met some of the other board members and came away impressed, excited and challenged. When I actually visited the Clinica, I saw not only the facility itself, but the surrounding community it serves. Seeing all this first-hand, it surpassed my first -already high- impressions and expectations.This is only the beginning and I am thrilled and humbled to be in a position to help see this model not replicated but enhanced and extended.
I've been involved with Clínica Verde for around 5 months as an intern, and I've been incredibly impressed by the caring, passion, and drive of everyone that I have worked with. My position has allowed me to see the inner workings of the organization, and I'm proud to be involved with a nonprofit that does such important work for the health of families and young people.
What separates Clinica Verde from other nonprofits is its holistic approach to wellness, care and education. Clinica Verde does not just provide quality service to individuals in need, but it also provides long-lasting relationships and opportunities for young individuals to jumpstart their educational goals. I personally have been touched by the mission that this nonprofit has to offer to their community. Its not every day that individuals are offered healthcare, an education and friends. Clinica Verde is the ideal nonprofit.
As volunteers helping with housing, education and improved health care in Nicaragua for more than ten years now, we have watched Clinica Verde emerge as a mere idea into the most beautiful model of health care we could have ever imagined possible.
This rural medical clinic and healthy-living educational facility is almost beyond the imagination of anyone who witnesses the care and concern offered to families who come there for help. As I have told our American friends who ask about Clinica Verde, "You would be proud and very comfortable seeking treatment for your own health needs at this rural health clinic. It is a welcoming place of comfort and care that is seldom, if ever, seen in developing countries."
Clinica Verde is a brilliant realization of so much hard work and an amazing dream.
We are so impressed with the entire operation, from the environmental planning to the skillful execution of bringing together locals and volunteers from around the globe. It's rare to find a non-profit with such a beautiful balance of organization and sustainable holistic approach to providing care; Clinica Verde is just that!
Our experience at Clinica Verde was moving, wonderful, emotional, and eye opening. We are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to experience the love, kindness, caring, and selflessness of everybody involved. This was our first trip and we were not sure what to expect. Clinica Verde exhibits something so special in such a deprived area. It demonstrates a sophisticated operation in a poor country with great need. Everybody involved was very proud to be a part of the facility. We departed with passion to return and great desire to be a part of Clinica Verde in the future. We are so humble. Clinic Verde has made quite an impact on our lives.
They are a wonderful organization! I learned a great deal about medicine in developing countries. The staff was incredibly thoughtful and organized; they were helpful with the volunteers and incredibly compassionate with the patients. The garden is an impressive endeavor as well! It seemed to bring a lot of people from the community together.
I recently visited Clinica Verde for the first time and was amazed to see firsthand how it has brought health and hope to Nicaragua. CV is not only providing basic healthcare, but also pre natal and post natal care, sexual reproduction and dietary / nutritional education in a clean, friendly, and positive environment. From the bio-intensive garden and architectural design which conserves resources to the compassionate and helpful staff, I was very impressed with CV's operations. Clinica Verde's annual report proves that this global, sustainable, and innovative prototype is making a big difference.
I recently toured Clinica Verde for the first time and it is a truly a new model of healthcare in which patient experience comes first. The facilities are impecable and the staff is very friendly. Clinica Verde has created a sense of belonging for those in the community and has met their health care needs improving their lives. It is a truly an inspiring non-profit organization that is also educating the future generations on health care and sexual education.
After visiting Clinica Verde and meeting the people involved with it's implementation, I am extremely impressed with how even though Clinica Verde is a new concept in medical outreach in developing countries, the Nicaraguan culture of ages is not forgotten. Everyone is welcomed and made to feel deserving of the care and service provided to them. The passion of Susan and the board is unparalleled. Keep up the good work!!
I recently returned from a visit to Clinica Verde where I met with staff members and joined the interim Medical Director on an outreach visit to the surrounding community. What struck me most about the visit was the uncompromising commitment to an environment where every patient feels valued and loved. Staff members ensure that every person who walks through their doors feels respected, listened to, and cared for.
Set in a rural area of Nicaragua, Clinica Verde serves patients with few resources. In addition to providing in-patient and outreach medical services, the clinic provides educational programs to meet some of the greatest health priorities in the region. These preventive health programs serve adolescents, mothers and babies and provide a holistic approach that serves as a model to other clinics.
Clinica Verde's work is exceptional and their staff is inspirational.
