Founded in 1963 by Mildred Nelson. Ms. Nelson, a nurse, began working for Harry Hoxsey in 1946 at his clinic in Dallas, Texas. At Harry Hoxsey’s urging, Mildred Nelson opened the Bio-Medical Center in Tijuana, Mexico, 3 miles south of the U.S. border. Over the years, Mildred expanded the center’s treatment offerings and hired a fully licensed, English-speaking staff. She assembled professional support personnel to meet the needs of the thousands of patients who visit Bio-Medical Center every year. Most of the original medical staff and support personnel have remained through the years, and the clinic continues to provide accessible and economical medical help.
Before her death in 1999, Mildred continued Harry Hoxsey’s legacy by appointing her sister Liz Jonas as chief administrator. Today, the Hoxsey legacy of healing lives on at the Bio-Medical Center.
