Hospital Santa Rosita

Psychiatric Hospital Santa Rosita

It was built to address end-stage tuberculosis patients in 1966 to nearby Amarateca Valley, but given the boom that became the National Institute of Chest that property was used to move there with chronic mental patients from the Hospital Mario Mendoza, running since 1976. Emeritus Dr. Pacheco was its first director.
