Operation Hope Medical Missions (OHMM) was formed in 2018 by Matt Miller, DNAP, CRNA. OHMM is a small, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Christian organization that was founded with the purpose of increasing the number of yearly surgical brigades at San Benito Jose Medical Center in Comayagua, Honduras. Our Board of Directors consists of four healthcare professionals who have all participated in previous medical/surgical mission trips to this medical center.
Our mission is to help the indigent in underdeveloped countries. We are dedicated to serving those families and patients in need by offering free medical and surgical care. The patients we serve at San Benito Jose Medical Center have limited or no access to healthcare services. Some patients travel hours away on a very limited budget to receive our care. Many patients lack basic needs such as running water, food, clothing, electricity, sanitation, and adequate housing. Patients are often sick and in pain and cannot afford to be treated for their various medical conditions.
Once a year, a team of twenty to thirty healthcare volunteers from all across the United States finance their own trip to Honduras to treat as many patients as possible. Each mission trip is one week long and approximately one hundred patients receive surgical care. Many other patients receive additional medical care from our team members. OHMM feels honored and privileged to be able to provide free care to those patients who are desperately in need.
