Santiago, Chile -- Archbishop Ricardo Ezzati Visits El Salto

Archbishop Ricardo Ezzatti of Santiago, Chile, visited the El Salto Polyclinic, the first corporative work of Opus Dei in the country, located in the Recoleta district. The Archbishop walked through its departments, and had a get together with the students, doctors and other personnel at the center, whom he thanked for the service they provide and the warm welcome they give to patients.

El Salto was begun in 1961, through the efforts of Fr. Adolfo Rodriguez Vidal, whose cause of canonization was recently begun. It began as a small dispensary and over time has become an initiative aimed at helping families and a medical center, which offers medical attention to the people living in the district.
