Boquete Health and Hospice is based in the rural mountain town of Boquete, Chiriqui, Panama's westernmost province. We are a non-profit foundation dedicated to giving respectful and compassionate care when our neighbors have short-term illness or end-of-life needs. In addition, we provide necessary medical equipment, locate blood donors when needed, and give ongoing educational seminars regarding end of life procedures in Panama. Our services are given by trained volunteers free of charge to our neighbors both Expat and Panamanian. 

If you have visited or lived in Boquete for any length of time, you have  probably heard of the good work we do and our valued place in the community. We are honored when called upon to help in times of need.

How might you participate?

  • Become a valued volunteer
  • Donate no longer needed medical equipment
  • Make a financial contribution by check or cash. Contact Laurie Collier, our treasurer, at to arrange a place and time to pick up your donation.

For your convenience, in the near future we will have an online means of donation for your convenience. 

100% of what you donate goes toward:

  • Buying, storing and maintaining medical equipment for short-term loan 
  •  Operating our administrative services (copies, supplies, communication such as cell phones and website, etc.)
  •  Training and seminars

We sincerely hope you will be sympathetic to our needs and want to support our worthwhile organization by either volunteering or making a much-needed financial contribution..
