A bustling, tree-lined plaza — the center of community life in Ocuituco, Mexico — is now a place for the city’s residents to get the medical care they need. In the state of Morelos, where Ocuituco is located, a 7.1-magnitude temblor damaged 24,000 buildings in September, structures that included the Centro de Salud de Ocuituco, a health center that serves about 4,500 patients.

The town’s hospital is still operational but is several miles outside of the town’s center, requiring patients to walk the distance or hire a car — expensive in the mountainous region.
