Hospital Damas, formerly called Santo Asilo de Damas, is a 331-bed teaching hospital [5] in Ponce, Puerto Rico. [1]

History

Hospital Damas was founded in 1863< [1] as Santo Asilo de Damas by Sister Francisca Paz Cabrera, and it was attended to by the group known as Siervas de Maria ( Servants of Mary) since 1891. [6] [7]

The hospital was located in downtown Ponce, but on 6 May 1973 it moved to its current location at a new 10-story tower on the north side of the Ponce By-Pass. [8] The original location of Damas, as the current hospital is commonly called, is now home to Parque Urbano Dora Colón Clavell. [9]
