Dr. Gutierrez-Galatas' Story: ER Director

Jan 30, 2020

Building community in a time of critical need

Dr. Luis Gutierrez-Galatas, Emergency Director

Dr Gutierrez Galatas Hospital Story Dr. Luis Gutierrez-Galatas joined Coral Gables Hospital in the early '80s shortly after his uncle suffered a heart attack. At the time, he was working in Broward County as an emergency room physician.

Now serving as medical director of the emergency department, Dr. Gutierrez-Galatas enjoys getting to know his patients and their families. Because of his Cuban heritage, he feels a common bond with many of the people who visit the ER.

"The community here is mainly a Cuban community," he says. "I was born in Cuba and came to the United States when I was 13 years old. I fell in love with the hospital because I could relate to the people. It’s about being able to serve the community that I love."

While nobody wants to have to take a trip to the emergency room, it's comforting to know that a doctor with a real dedication to his community is waiting inside.
