  2. HEALTHCARE RESOURCES FOR CHIRIQUI PROVINCE Version 1.4, December 8, 2017 The information contained in this listing of healthcare resources was originally compiled by Mary Lynah many years ago. Beginning August 2017, this resource listing is now maintained by Doug and Jo Johnson, who are full-time Boquete residents, having retired several years ago from legal and medical careers. Some of the information in this listing is several years old and has not yet been verified by the the new Healthcare Resources custodians. If you discover incorrect, outdated, or missing information, please notify Doug and Jo, and they will research, validate, and then post the correct information on this listing for everyone's benefit. Doug and Jo may be contacted by PM (private message) here on CL using the @Doug and Jo display name, or by regular email to health.info@chiriqui.life. It is strongly preferred that communications with Doug and Jo about this listing not be conducted by postings in this forum or in this particular topic. Please note that not all of the resources listed below are physically located within the Chiriqui Province.
