About Us

The Punta Mita Hospital Foundation is a non-profit association which was formed by a group of people with a genuine desire to support the community by contributing to the  Punta Mita Hospital through healthcare programs with the intent of having the best healthcare services and equipment in the area.

Before 2017 the Punta de Mita area did not have emergency medical services available to people who live, work, and visit the area. In case of an accident the nearest hospital was 40 minutes away.

It was in June of 2017 that the Punta Mita Hospital opened its doors with the objective of providing world-class healthcare to the community of Punta Mita — both within the gates of Punta Mita and beyond.

In early 2018 after two separate health incidents in Punta Mita, a group of concerned residents leaded by Mr. Stan Grad, felt that a foundation to support Punta Mita Hospital was required to take it from urgent/emergent care to a trauma equipped Hospital.

Our first fundraiser was a success and with Dr. Najmabadi´s guidance we were able to buy Cardio equipment, a 64 slide Ct Scan – the best in the bay – and ancillary medical equipment.

Throughout this time our donations have been used strictly for healthcare related activities.

In 2021 the Punta Mita Hospital Foundation and Punta Mita Hospital itself, entered into an agreement with UC San Diego Health to provide Telemedicine services.

Punta Mita Hospital Foundation seeks to seed new initiatives, identify and expand existing healthcare programs, support appropriate clinical and medical research, promote medical education to positively impact its targeted communities
