The Horacio Oduber Hospital was initially a Catholic hospital. However, as it is the only hospital on the island, it is open to patients of all denominations. Our hospital’s history dates back to 1920, when the Dominican sisters established the first hospital in Aruba (San Pedro di Verona).

This first hospital was in downtown Oranjestad, which is now being used as a nursing home for the elderly. The current hospital was taken into use in late 1976. The official opening of the Horacio Oduber Hospital took place in January 1977. The hospital was named after the first Aruban doctor, Mr. Horacio E. Oduber MD. Before the opening of San Pedro di Verona Hospital, doctor Oduber treated patients at his home (Quinta del Carmen, located at Bubali). This building still exists and is restored to its original state by a local architect. Currently it is a well known restaurant on the island.
