Hospital Evangelico was founded in 1949 in Siguatepeque, a town located in the central region of Honduras, by the Central American Mission (CAM International). In 1969, the hospital was transferred to national hands, becoming an autonomous national organization that is a fraternal member of the Association of Central American Churches of Honduras. Hospital Evangelico is a private, non-profit, self-sustaining entity run by a national organization, The Evangelical Hospital Association, made up of Christian leaders from several evangelical churches. The association in turn appoints a board of directors that is in charge of the general orientation of the hospital, including appointing the executive director and administration positions. The opening of Hospital Evangelico helped greatly in the development of Siguatepeque. It has gained much recognition in the local and national evangelical churches and for many years was the only hospital institution in the city.

    Hospital Values
    Christian Testimony:
    We use our vocation, experience, and talents so that in daily contact we present the Gospel. In this way, we have the possibility to help change lives, not losing sight of how many people suffer and desperately need to know the grace of God.
    Matthew 5:16: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
    We believe that excellence honors God and satisfies our patients. Therefore, we intend to do our best with the resources at our fingertips. Each member must seek excellence and reflect it in both attitude and effort.
    Colossians 3:23: "And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men."
    To have a positive impact on the world, we need our service to be characterized by attitudes that reflect who we are when we are alone or in a group; without discrepancies between what we say and what we do, as well as between our walking and talking.
    Psalm 25:21: "Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You."
    We believe that all the people over whom God has delegated responsibilities in our institution should contribute with their example and teaching to the formation of other members who, in turn, are able to replace them when necessary. Each one must allow the other the necessary space to learn their work.
    Mark 4:33-34: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples."
    We believe that regardless of the sacrifice, we must attend all those who demand our help in comprehensive health services.
    Galatians 6:10: "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith."
    We feel committed to the Lord and the principles of our institution, therefore we will put personal interests aside for the sake of the same.
    1 Thessalonians 5:11: "Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing."
    We consider that the members of the Hospital family must have or develop the capacity to live together in a community environment and to work as a team.
    Philippians 2:4: "Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others."
    We consider that our work is aimed at people in need so it must be done efficiently, but above all with a compassionate heart.
    Matthew 14:14: "And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick."
    Recognition of History:
    We recognize that the work of the Evangelical Hospital was founded on solid Christian principles; which we will take into account for the improvement and expansion of the vision and mission of the work.
    1 Corinthians 3:10-11: "According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
    We recognize that every human being has been created in the image and likeness of God and therefore deserves to be treated with dignity, honor, and respect.
    Philippians 2:3: "In lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself."
    Dependence of God:
    Our institution was created, developed, and exists by the power of God, whom is the one who sustains it to carry out its mission using us as its administrator; therefore, we will always depend on the Lord in our projects.
    2 Corinthians 3:5: "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God."
