By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize Medical and Dental Association (BMDA) was first in line to mourn the passing of its former president Dr. Jose Moguel, who died over the weekend.

The BMDA issued a statement after learning of his passing, saying that Belize’s medical community has suffered an “irreplaceable loss.”

The Association mourned his death but also celebrated his life, detailing his journey from his birth as the 7th of 9 children Leandro and Mrs.Mariana Moguel back in 1962, to his being raised in San Lazaro Village in the Orange Walk District. The BMDA noted that He was a graduate of Salvador Allende Medical School (1981-1987), La Habana, Cuba following he continued his studies as a General Surgeon Specialist also at Hospital Salvador Allende, La Habana Cuba (1987-1991).

He returned to our country settling in Belize City, quickly joining the staff at the old Belize City Hospital until their transfer to KHMH. He was the first recipient of the Taiwan scholarship program, and also did a course on preparation for Mass Casualty in Israel.

“The BMDA is devastated, as it has lost one of the cornerstone pillars of the organization, a member of the executive body, a past president, and one of our representatives in the Belize Medical Council. Belize as a country has lost a stellar exemplary, caring, humble, compassionate, and dedicated physician,” the BMD said.

The Association also emphasized that Dr. Moguel represented Belize internationally, helped foster greater medical cooperation with Mexico, and built a career of service that was consistent up until just before his passing, and extended its condolences to Dr. Moguel’s family and friends.

The Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and the Ministry of Health and Wellness, have also issued statements of grief in light of Dr. Moguel’s death.

Breaking Belize News takes this opportunity to offer its condolences to Dr. Moguel’s family, friends, and all those affected by his passing.

May he rest in peace.
