Liberia will host the pilot program of an agreement that allows autopsies to be conducted at hospitals belonging to the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social.
Until now all autopsies were done at the Morgue Judicial at San Joaquín de Flores, Heredia. That meant that bodies from all over the country are taken there and that relatives have to retrieve the body there after the autopsy.
The agreement was signed by Luis Paulino Mora Mora, president of the Corte Suprema de Justicia and Ileana Balmaceda Arias, executive president of the Caja, Friday. Hospital Enrique Baltodano Briceño will become a location for the Sección de Patología Forense del Poder Judicial
