Mission Roatan Home


Peggy Stranges, RN, relocated to Roatán in 2001 and began treating patients from her kitchen.  As more and more patients came, the need for a building and other local staff became necessary.  In the early years, Mission Roatán was instrumental on the donation side of things, providing grants and a communication link.  Eventually, Clinica Esperanza created it's own board and began to function independently.  Mission Roatán is proud to have been a partner in the early stages of this ministry to the people most in need in Honduras.

Today, Nurse Peggy's dream has grown into a 4,500-sq-ft clinic.  Clinica Esperanza has become the primary medical provider for hundreds of island families and tourists. Their outpatient facility, opened in 2007 and located in Sandy Bay, treats most common medical problems as well as local illnesses such as malaria, dengue and parasites. The clinic is considered the center for hypertension and diabetes on the island. The clinic's second floor houses a much-needed Birthing Center and Pediatric Hospital.
