Our History

Centro Médico ABC is run by a Board of Trustees, it does not have an owner, so it reinvests its financial surplus to serve economically vulnerable communities through disease prevention and high specialty surgery programs to neighboring communities, as well as teaching and research.

1886

On December 12, the American Hospital is inaugurated in Mexico City. Mr. Simón Lara was the first ABC philanthropist to donate a plot of land to build the hospital, an act that motivated the American Benevolent Society to collect donations for its construction.

Thanks to the donation of Mr. Weetman Pearson and the unconditional support of his wife, Mrs. Annie Cass, both from the English community in Mexico, Cowdray Sanatorium opens its doors on Mariano Escobedo Street; it would later be known as the “English Hospital”.
