Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - A Happy Spring to one and all! To those of you heading north for the summer, we wish you a lovely summer and look forward to seeing you next fall! Here at HealthCare Resources Puerto Vallarta, we stay busy all summer and our clinics stay full. I don't think we really have a "low season" here anymore. Just a little "less busy."
Our clinics are all screening clinics. To reserve a space, just send an email to pamela(at)healthcareresourcespv.com stating which clinic you would like to participate in. We will send you your appointment information and details including location, map, etc. We always attempt to accommodate requested times if at all possible.

We also offer: Colonoscopies, Endoscopies, Complete Men's and Women's Check-ups, Audiologist, Plastic Surgery, Physical Therapy, MRI, Shingles Vaccines, and much more!
We do not sell insurance. But, we do work closely with a good variety of insurance representatives who offer international, travelers insurance, and air evacuation policies. Please contact me for information. Insurance is very important!
We do have a very low-cost membership program that can be purchased for 6 months, 1 year or 2 years. What are the benefits? Many! Discounts on our clinics, 50% off on teeth cleaning, complete medical record kept by HealthCare Resources, and much more! It is important to note: You do not need to be a PLUS member to receive our services! We will hold your hand regardless for your health care needs. Plus members, I like to say "we hold both hands!" Email for information.
Watch for a new direction that HealthCare Resources is taking! We are working on our new website and re-assessing some of our clinics and services, with a lot more focus on our wonderful physicians! It's time to freshen things up a bit! It is important to remember that we are an INDEPENDENT company – not "employed" by any specific hospital/businesses. We have contracts with 25 physicians of all specialties and NEVER work on a commission basis. We have contracts with three hospitals (San Javier, Medasist and Amerimed).
We are also very happy to set up a time to meet, one on one, to go over a personalized health plan for YOU. From personal physician referrals to end of life decisions (not a fun topic but very important!) Just email for an appointment. Of course, no charge for this.
We are proud to work with AMBULANCIAS AURA. Note this number: 209-0622 for 24/7 bi-lingual service.
We are very proud to begin working closely with SETAC, a wonderful Gay and Lesbian Center offering a wide variety of services. They are opening a "Thrift Shop" and they need items! Contact me for information. I will be sending out an updated Wish List for not only SETAC but also items for the women in prison, items for the local "day-care centers" for the old folks, and the Regional Hospital. Now that many people have left for the season, it is a bit more difficult for many charities to obtain needed items.
Hot Topic Mondays
Many of you have asked when we will begin these again. I most certainly hope to do so in May! Please! Send your ideas for topics. Or, perhaps you would like to do a presentation. We are wide-open to topics and ideas!
A Cool Get Away
As we head into the "hot" months, think about an escape to the mountains to San Sebastian and a stay at the Hacienda Jalisco. This is our 280 year old hacienda (run by my son so yes, I am putting in a plug.) Or, put together a group and go up for the day to explore the pueblo and have a delicious lunch at the Hacienda Jalisco. It's peaceful, its calm, it's beautiful! Email for information.Here's to a joyful and healthy spring and summer, wherever you are!
