    En muy raras ocasiones, los recorridos son cancelados debido a inclemencias del tiempo o algún otro imprevisto. En estos casos se publicará un aviso, a más tardar a las 4 p.m. del día programado.

    No necesita inscribirse. Solamente le pedimos que llegue 10 minutos antes. La persona que ofrecerá el recorrido recibirá a los participantes al lado derecho de la recepción principal del hospital. Los recorridos duran aproximadamente 2 horas.
