What is it?

The Hospital Padrino Strategy is a model of social innovation in health aimed at vulnerable populations and a greater risk in health in Colombia. In this sense, it seeks to contribute to equity in health care, timely access to quality health services, the promotion of knowledge and the strengthening of physical infrastructure, with the ultimate purpose of reducing preventable deaths and providing life opportunities.

The Intervention

Hospital Padrino is a model of collaborative work between hospitals, where a public or private hospital of high complexity and quality (Hospital Padrino) within the conditions of the territory, accompanies and supports providers of less scope (sponsored Hospital) to improve quality, timeliness and resolution of care, under the coordination of the national, regional and local government.

Through education strategies that save lives, it is intended to strengthen the knowledge and skills of the health teams from sponsored hospitals, with workshops that combine theoretical and practical aspects, emphasizing the development of soft skills for teamwork and humanization of care. In addition, the model strengthens Telehealth and directly improves the care conditions of users with the use of telemedicine or telecare strategies from Hospital Padrino, allowing patients from sponsored hospitals to access specialized care and spend less time in their diagnoses.

Hospital Padrino supports the premise of decent hospitals for the Colombian population, supporting sponsored hospitals in the adaptation of hospital infrastructure in such a way that they can offer services under the best standards. In this way, under the leadership and in alliance with the government, the hospitals from low to high complexity and the community form integrated networks of hospitals that allow better care and communication between the hospitals of this model.

Programa Alimentando Esperanzas (Feeding Hope) Program
Alimentando Esperanzas (Feeding Hope) Program
38% of pediatric patients with oncological diagnoses, transplants and cardiovascular surgeries, have severe or moderate food insecurity.

This means that, in addition to the nutritional deficiencies generated by their disease, these highly complex patients do not have sufficient, nutritious and good quality food at home. The difficult socioeconomic conditions that families present are the main reason for this situation.

Consequently, many of these patients do not receive the daily number of meals they need to achieve adequate nutrition, which can help them to better recover and achieve an active and healthy life.

The Alimentando Esperanzas program was born at the end of 2021 to combat food insecurity and promote good nutrition in these patients. By doing so, it can reduce inequality gaps that arise when social factors put children at a disadvantage during the process of disease and health recovery.

For Fundación Valle del Lili, it is a priority to create programs and interventions that help children in vulnerable conditions to have the same opportunities for recovery as other minors who, although they have the same disease, do not have the same barriers.

What is Alimentando Esperanzas?

The program focuses on the following areas:

  • 1. To identify

    To identify patients who have severe or moderate food insecurity, the Latin American and Caribbean Food Insecurity Scale (ELCSA for its acronym in Spanish) is applied to all pediatric patients diagnosed with cancer, transplants, or severe heart disease who are identified in hospitalization services. Additionally, they receive an initial medical and nutritional assessment.

  • 2. To ensure access to food

    Families of patients entering the program receive a monthly nutritional market covering 70% of the household's nutritional needs. For each case, the time for which the delivery of the markets will be made is established considering several variables such as the diagnosis, the phase of treatment, the nutritional evolution of the patient and the level of food insecurity. The program provides markets to patients residing in different regions of the country.

  • 3. To educate

    To combat food insecurity, in addition to ensuring access to food, families need to learn how to improve their eating habits and how to make the best nutritional choices even when they don't have enough budget. This area will contribute to the sustainability of the intervention once food aid is suspended. The educational process focuses on the family unit, given the level of influence it has on the child's development. It is assumed that, if the family is properly nourished, so will children in the short, medium and long term.

  • 4. To follow-up

    In addition, two types of monitoring are performed. The first is a social follow-up with which the current social situation of the family and the evolution and state of the patient are investigated. The second is the nutritional follow-up that is carried out with a medical evaluation every 4 months. This last follow-up is documented in the patient's medical history. All beneficiaries shall receive aid for a period of at least one year.

Collage con imágenes del hogar de paso

Fundación Valle del Lili, in agreement with Alonso Ocampo Foster Home, provides temporary accommodation to patients who:

  • Come from other municipalities different to Cali.
  • Have no medical criteria for being hospitalized, but they need to stay in Cali to continue their treatment.

Food, transport and funeral aids

In search of a more accessible and inclusive health care for the poor population, FVL has a humanitarian aid program, which helps to mitigate basic needs that have more vulnerable patients and companions. The program has scope to the different headquarters of the Institution and has 4 types of aid:

  • Food aid for companions of hospitalized patients.
  • Transport aids for patients and family members.
  • Medication aids for patients.
  • Funeral assistance for families of deceased pediatric patients who do not have funeral insurance.

The cases of patients and families interested in receiving any of these grants are evaluated separately through a socioeconomic survey, to verify whether or not the applicants meet the criteria necessary to be beneficiaries. The criteria are established in the Institutional Policy of Social Support to the most vulnerable population.

Sinfonía de sonrisas (Symphony of Smiles)
is an institutional group of hospital clowns. It arises from the need to provide more humanized care and to carry out interventions that contribute to the comprehensive healing of patients and provide them with a dose of emotional well-being.

Through play, humor and laughter, it is intended to change the hospital dynamics of the patient and produce an improvement in their health regardless of age. This group is made up of Lili citizens, who voluntarily decide to train as hospital clowns, maintaining their standards thanks to continuous training and learning about clown technique.

The main objectives of the Sinfonía de sonrisas are:

  • To mitigate the negative emotional impact of disease and hospitalization.
  • Relieve distress and uncertainty by bringing hope to patients and reconnecting them with other fundamental aspects of their lives.
  • Avoid isolation and the breaking of social and emotional bonds.

El Aula Lili (The Lili Classroom)
is a program that provides inclusive psychopedagogical services to children and adolescents who are in the process of disease, to respond to their biopsychosocial needs and contribute to their comprehensive human development.

El Aula Lili is based on two theoretical and practical frameworks: hospital pedagogy and inclusive education. The central purpose is to accompany pediatric patients and their families in a humanized and sensitive way, so that the health care process, inside and outside the hospital, becomes an opportunity for learning, development and personal growth. Playfulness and the creation of meaningful educational experiences are fundamental tools to achieve this purpose.

The program has the following specific objectives:

  • 1. To contribute to the care of the physical, mental and emotional health of children and adolescents.
  • 2. To encourage playfulness as an opportunity for freedom, autonomy and creativity.
  • 3. To provide educational and school support for the development of skills, through creative and flexible strategies and resources.
  • 4. To articulate, with the different stakeholders involved, the efforts that contribute to patients being able to receive comprehensive care.
  • 5. To generate permanent reflection processes that lead to the production of knowledge.

El Aula Lili fulfills its objectives through fundamental axes:

  • Playful-pedagogical axis: Playful intervention and health education are fundamental tools to promote human development processes within the hospital environment to offer patients and their families spaces in which they can process their emotions and acquire social skills to face the process of disease and hospitalization in a positive way.
  • School axis: Provides educational and school accompaniment to patients, so that they can develop skills through creative and flexible strategies and resources. It also coordinates with families, educational institutions, foundations and education secretariats to facilitate access, permanence and continuity of school, seeking to mitigate the negative effects of de-schooling caused by the disease and treatment.

El Aula Lili team is interdisciplinary. It has the contribution of psychologists, occupational therapists, professionals in bachelor's degree and professionals in recreation. The program covers all of the institution's pediatric services.

La Jornada de Operación Sonrisa (The day of Operation Smile)
La Jornada de Operación Sonrisa (The day of Operation Smile) is aimed at pediatric patients with a diagnosis of cleft lip and cleft palate. In partnership with the Fundación Operación Sonrisa, monthly at Fundación Valle del Lili, about 30 patients are evaluated and between 8 and 10 free surgeries are performed on children, young people and adults with this diagnosis.

Through interdisciplinary work, volunteers from Fundación Operación Sonrisa together with our specialists carry out timely and comprehensive treatment in these medical-surgical sessions for patients, which include: assessment for plastic surgery, dentistry, speech therapy, pediatrics, anesthesia and taking laboratory exams.

How is the process?

Interested families must register children for the day and verify the dates on which they must be present.

These days are held in two days: a Friday and a Saturday. On the first day, the plastic surgeon evaluates the patients and, according to the medical and prioritization criteria of Operación Sonrisa, those who are candidates for surgery are selected. If these patients receive approval from the pediatrician and anesthesiologist, their surgery is performed the next day. A week later, post-operative control is performed with the plastic surgeon.

At all times, families are supported by an interdisciplinary team made up of pediatricians, anesthesiologists, nurses, psychologists, social workers, among others.

If you know a child, adolescent or adult with a diagnosis of cleft lip and cleft palate, who can benefit from these days, we invite you to contact the following numbers: 3142381719, 3212052806, 3212052359
