He arrived in a discrete car with local license plates, not in a Papal vehicle. After greeting the Cardinal, the Pope stopped at the hospital's Chapel to pray along with the 13 nuns of the San José de Gerona Order, who work in the hospital.
The Pope made it a point to speak individually with the nuns and also with others who were in the Chapel. Before leaving he also thanked the medical personnel. Upon his arrival, many patients and their families made their way to the hospital's hall to greet the Latin American Pope.
