Roberto Borge Angulo, Quintana Roo Governor and honorary president state Family Development Agency (DIF) Mariana Zorrilla de Borge (the governor’s wife), along with State Health Secretary Mercedes Juan López inaugurated the Isla Mujeres Community Hospital, a work which represented an investment of 101.3 million pesos (US$5.9 million) that will directly benefit more than 18,900 inhabitants.
Accompanied by Isla Mujeres Mayor Agapito Magaña Sánchez and the Health Secretariat’s Development Integration Undersecretary Eduardo González Pier, Borge Angulo said that with this work, President Enrique Peña Nieto responded to the needs of the Isla Mujeres population, which now has a larger, full-service hospital.
“The community hospital will directly benefit more than 18,000 inhabitants. It was built in an area of 2,871 square meters and has a capacity of 13 beds. It’s equipped with 4 clinics, a pharmacy, social work areas, a waiting room, an X-ray room, a clinical and ultrasound laboratory, a processing area, an operating room, a labor room, an administrative area and a medical emergencies department,” said Borge Angulo.
The hospital will also have a brand new hyperbaric chamber with a capacity for up to 9 people, in order to care for the many fishermen who each year suffer from decompression accidents. The current chamber in the hospital is outdated and the people required better equipment, he added.
The community hospital will allow for the care of people who only have Popular Insurance. The goal is to provide access to health services for people who are not members of any other insurance and to supply drugs belonging to the diseases related to catastrophic situations catalogue, said Juan López.
Another important part of the actions of the federal government is the Cancun General Hospital, which will be inaugurated by Peña Nieto and represent a total investment of 1 billion pesos, although its inauguration date is not yet established, she added.
The new hospital is located on Rueda Medina street, opposite the Hacienda Mundaca.
