Hospital Vicente D'Antoni is a hospital in La Ceiba, Honduras established on February 4, 1924[1] in a formal ceremony conducted by the nation's President.[2][3] It is one of the best hospitals in the republic and was greatly assisted for a number of years by the arrival of two nurses from New England from Sisters of Mercy, who opened up a nursing school at the hospital.[3]
