Hospital Damas, formerly called Santo Asilo de Damas, is a 331-bed teaching hospital[6] in Ponce, Puerto Rico.[7]

History[edit]

Hospital Damas was founded in 1863[8] 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.[9][10]

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.[11] The original location of Damas, as the current hospital is commonly called, is now home to Parque Urbano Dora Colón Clavell.
