HCA Healthcare Heroes: Mission Accomplished for Los Robles Medical Mountain Team in Honduras

11 healthcare professionals stand outside of a building

Having a heart for service is doing more than just talking the talk – at HCA Healthcare’s Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center, it’s walking the walk. And for the third time, a team of physicians, nurses and clinical technicians volunteered to serve impoverished areas in Honduras by providing access to medical care. They are the Los Robles Medical Mountain Team.

Dr. Ed Chambers, a Los Robles pediatrician, checked a medical mission trip off of his “bucket list” five years ago, and has since recruited many of his colleagues to get involved. Now, the Los Robles Medical Mountain team is comprised of more than 15 staff members and growing.

This year’s team, led by Dr. Carlo Reyes, an emergency physician and pediatrician at Los Robles, are our HCA Healthcare Heroes. Watch how the human side of medicine changes the lives of villagers in Honduras and, most of all, the Los Robles Medical Mountain Team, thanks to their willingness to say: “Here I am; send me.”
