This podcast features Daniel Kennedy, the CEO of Oasis of Hope, discussing the 50th Anniversary for the Oasis of Hope hospital. This was the birth place of what is now known as alternative cancer treatment pioneered by Dr. Ernesto Contreras. It was the Contreras family that fought all the early battles with regulators, public opinion, and an entire medical community that was resistant to change both in the United States and Mexico. Today, The Oasis of Hope hospital is a modern hospital located in the beautiful beach area of Tijuana equipped with surgical facilities, diagnostic labs, and capable of treating up to 100 patients on a daily basis. What's ahead? Excitement! The "New Oasis of Hope," rolled out in the next 12 months, will reflect a new commitment to patient care long after they leave Oasis for treatment.
