Over the course of three medical missions in 2011 and 2013, the Mitral Foundation continued its work with Hospital General de la Plaza de la Salud in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The Mitral Foundation and Mount Sinai team helped establish two operating room suites - creating a space that will continue to serve the Dominican Republic patient community for years to come.

A complete trip report of our March 2013 medical mission, including pictures and video, is available on the Adam Pick Heart Valve Surgery Blog.
