Why Hermosillo, Mexico?
The resplendent capital of Sonora is Hermosillo, Mexico. This prosperous agricultural center, rich with culture and warm-hearted residents, recently became the home for Ford Motor Company's Mexican manufacturing. The city houses several important infrastructures for Envita's international care. First, it is the home of the Sonora Medical School and it is also a primary location for Mexico's CIMA hospital systems. CIMA is the quintessential American-style hospital and maintains a broad spectrum of medical services and specialties. Dr. Badell, Envita's chief medical director hematologist/oncologist and bone marrow specialist, is available on-campus to provide the necessary clinical expertise and highest-levels of contact and care to our patients. Professor Rascon, Envita's Lab Director is also an active member of the facility and maintains pristine laboratory GMP criteria.

The hospital itself has been a destination site for medical tourism for over a decade.
