Medical Emergencies in Mexico

Peace of Mind in San Miguel

is a community service project dedicated to raising awareness among snowbirds and foreign residents of Mexico on How to Be Prepared for Medical Emergencies in Mexico. The project came about as a result of our insurance clients expressing misunderstandings of how medical care and hospitalization services work in Mexico. The project aims to educate snowbirds and expats in Mexico on the differences between public and private health care systems as well as prepare individuals for unforeseen medical emergencies. 

Our seminars are an important tool for newcomers, snowbirds, & long-term residents of San Miguel de Allende. The seminars cover these topics: 

  1. How Private Medical Care compares to Public Health Services.

  2. What differences in care exist between the Public and the Private Hospitals.

  3. Why having a local doctor is so important in a medical emergency.

  4. What the Mexican Red Cross needs from callers to respond effectively in a medical emergency.

  5. What legal documents are important to have in a medical crisis.

Seminars are delivered by Melanie Lansing and a panel of local medical & legal experts including: Dr. Robert Maxwell, Sonia Diaz, Leticia Fernandez, Dr. Juan Antonio Hernández, Mariana Salas, Magdalena Ríos, Ana Elena Andrade, Dr. Claudia Aguilar.
