Emergency Medical Care in Quito

I am one block from a clinic, Clinica Primavera. Services there are fine (to see a doctor for a cold or flu). Three blocks away is a very good hospital, Los Valles. Both are private. I have been to the ER in Los Valles a couple of times. The cost was around $300 (once for stitches and once for back pain which included a MRI scan). The quality of care in both were great.
