Each of the two hospitals are expected to treat more than 4,500 patients annually. They serve all categories of patients, whether privately and publicly insured, as well as the poor population thanks to an agreement between Puerta de Hierro and the country’s social security system.
The new facility in Tepic has 40 beds and provides specialized services not available from primary care doctors or secondary care consulting physicians, such as diagnosis, treatment and surgery for patients, including segments of the population insured by public agencies, suffering from cardiovascular and neurological diseases.
The hospital, a state-of-the-art facility, offers medical assistance in 22 disciplines and it has one of the best equipped hemodynamic centers in the country. The new hospital has also carried out the first intestine transplant in Mexico.
Besides improving access to high-quality care, the two hospitals are contributing to ease the burden on public hospitals and helping create employment opportunities in local communities. As many as 690 employees have been hired to work in the two new hospitals, which have also teaming up with local universities to allow them to carry out training and research in their facilities.
