Dr. Jorge Valenzuela, Internist at Clinica las Condes, and also a Regional Physician Advisor for HTH Worldwide, reports that today no hospitals in Southern Chile (Curico, Talca, Concepcion) are in operation.  Everyone is being transported to Santiago for medical treatment where the 2 main private hospitals, Clinica las Condes and Clinica Alemana, are in operation.  Condes sustained minor damage but is fully operational.  Alemana is fully operational, save some lab tests.  As long as those affected by yesterday’s devastating earthquake can get to Santiago, they should be able to get the care they need.
