The YIMC project was founded by Dr. Milton Mendoza in 2007. The Yojoa International Medical Center, when completed will be an icon to human services in an area where access to quality and reliable health care is literally 50 miles over the mountain and through the hills.
The Hospital is also be supported by a local assembly board, (International Yojoa Foundation), which has the responsibility of obtaining the financial resources needed to build the hospital and its complimentary projects. This Assembly board will also be responsible for establishing relationships, and petitioning funds from both international and international organizations in order to provide financial assistance.
Not only will the hospital provide complete technological service but also health education programs. Currently Northern Michigan University and the University of Michigan have research interests within the community and several students have completed internships and projects.
