Cuba praises achievements of healthcare by CNCMA center

Havana, Jun 30 (Prensa Latina) The achievements of Cuba’s National Center for Minimal Access Surgery (CNCMA) are grounded in the quality of its human resources, stressed here a leader of the national and international health care center.

The CNCMA obtained the certification of the Quality Management System under ISO 9001:2015 by the National Standardization Office and by the Certification Institute S.L. ICDQ from Spain, and that would not have been possible without its human capital, Deputy Director of Teaching and Research Rosalba Roque told Prensa Latina.

Likewise, she added that this assistance area, devised by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro has been certified since 2017 by the National Accreditation Board, which recognizes the academic program of a specialty.

According to Roque, we have had a clear mission for 30 years, and it is the research, development and generalization of minimally invasive surgery in Cuba, and that has been the driving force behind the development of the center since its foundation. In these three decades, we have over 5,000 graduates in each of the areas, over 1,000 patients operated on, we have developed oncological surgery, and we have received awards and recognitions as well, the specialist detailed.

We cannot fail to recognize that we have a leader, the Director and founder of the National Center for Minimal Access Surgery Julian Francisco Ruiz a man capable of dreaming, but bringing us all together, and that has allowed continuous improvement with the introduction of intervention techniques from the organization and from the management.

Regarding the influence of the U.S. blockade on the fulfillment of the entity’s goals, she replied that despite the limitations, her group has not stopped training human resources and attending patients, but we have not done it alone either, she pointed out.

As acknowledged by the Cuban Deputy Minister of Health Reynold Garcia in the context of the 30th Anniversary Convention of the center, we have made progress because we have the support of our organization, the University of Medical Sciences of Havana and other entities, Roque said.

The specialist believes that in order to defuse the problems, there must be unity among health institutions and their professionals. The blockade has affected us economically, but the mental blockade, the spiritual blockade is fatal, she pointed out.

The National Center for Minimal Access Surgery has achieved important results in these 30 years, but there is still a long way to go, and our group is convinced that we are ready for the future, she concluded.
