Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

If you or a loved one is facing a medical or financial emergency in Honduras, please contact the U.S. Embassy as soon as possible.

We can also provide you with additional information about how to send money to Honduras, and about private and public medical services in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, and La Ceiba. While the U.S. Embassy unfortunately does not provide medical services directly, we can help monitor your case and will assist you in getting information you need in order to make informed decisions.

Information on Sending Money to Honduras


We remind all U.S. citizens traveling and living in Honduras that medical care in Honduras varies greatly in quality and availability. Outside of the two major cities of Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula, medical care is inadequate to address complex situations. Support staff facilities and necessary equipment and supplies are not up to U.S. standards anywhere in Honduras, and facilities for advanced surgical procedures are not available.

Wide areas of the country, including the popular tourist areas of the Bay Islands, do not have a general surgery hospital. Ambulance services are limited in major cities and almost non-existent elsewhere. Emergency services may be contacted directly through their local numbers, including 911 for the national emergency line, and 195 for the local Red Cross.
