It appears to be a military abbreviation, like DEFCON.

HOS might be for Hospital
NAV for Naval
IXT for Ixtapa
ZIH for Zihuatanejo

I found this that gave me the clue: https://www.scribd.com/document/4759...CTIVA-TATUAJES

Such a Hospital does exist. http://www.zihuatanejo.net/healthmedical.html

OK, I think I've got it.

I found HOSNAVIXTZIH in some sort of very official work report (Informe de Labores) for the Mexican Navy. Your "mystery word" appears in the sentence

Quote:
Implementó el Sistema de Control Hospitalario (SICOHOSP) en los nosocomios de HOSNAVPES, HOSNAVGUAY, HOSNAVENS, HOSNAVHUAT, HOSNAVIXTZIH, HOSNAVCARD, CLINAVCHAMP, HOSNAVROS y HOSNAVBLAS.
I'm guessing HOSNAV is an acronym for Hospital Naval ("Navy hospital" in English). I believe the suffixes indicate locations. IXTZIH is probably "Ixtapa, Huatulco y Zihuatanejo."
