Our service is exclusively focused on serving the recovering patient in that brief, yet important time period between dental, medical and/or surgery procedures and safe return home.

Cosmetic, reconstructive, general, dental, dermatological and other medical procedures require specialized care and attention during the recovery period. Particularly important are the first 24-72 hours after surgery, when skilled post-operative nursing care is essential for ensuring that your body’s strongest healing processes are set in motion.

To that end, every member of our staff is particularly trained and prepared to take care of all your needs. From taking care of the colorful garden, to experienced nursing, to administrative and logistics, everyone here works towards providing you with excellence in care, comfort, and complete security.

As our guest in Las Cumbres we invite you to recover in a comfortable setting and be in complete contentment.
