Capital Campaign News

Your generous contributions thus far have led us to complete Phases One and Two of the campaign. FEMAP has expanded and remodeled Hospital de la Familia’s Surgical and Obstetric Unit. This increased the number of labor beds provided for expectant mothers along with much needed nursing stations, surgical, and recovery rooms.

This area was important not only for accreditation purposes, but also because a third of babies born in Ciudad Juarez are born at Hospital de la Familia. That is 14 babies a day.

Phase One—Surgical and Obstetric Unit—COMPLETE

9,680 sq. ft. Total Investment $949,000

  10 labor beds; Three nursing stations; Three delivery rooms

  Five surgical rooms; Eight recovery rooms; Two dressing areas

   Two full bathrooms; Three working stations; Dormitory

Meeting room; 2,000 sq. ft. rest area with a small kitchen

In August 2015, the new school, named after our founder, Guadalupe Arizpe de De la Vega welcomed its first students 650 students are currently enrolled. But more importantly, the new school can accommodate 1,000 students in two shifts and will double the current number of graduates. That’s 300 more people delivered out of poverty and empowered to make a difference for themselves and their families.

By making higher education accessible, the School opens doors of opportunity so people can study and become health care professionals. Armed with a degree, they can find good paying jobs and change the course of their lives and their city. 

Phase Two—Escuela Superior de Enfermeria Guadalupe Arizpe de De la Vega—COMPLETE

53,690 sq. ft. Total Investment $4.2 million

                            10 classrooms; 300-seat auditorium; Medical library (200 person capacity)
      Five clinical laboratories; 100-seat cafeteria; Administrative Offices
  Computer room; Professor’s lounge

Phase Three, Four and Five are ahead of us—

Our goal is to build and equip an Medical Ambulatory Services Building, a Clinical Analysis Laboratory and renovate three floors of the existing hospital in order to increase to 168 beds.

The plan also includes the construction of a two-story Emergency and Intensive Care Building to increase the capacity for emergencies and for adult and pediatric Intensive Care Units. Costs will also cover a two-story laundry, power plant and mechanical building.
