“Construction of the Specialty Hospital and Oncology Unit will start this month with a 600 million pesos ($43 million USD) investment“, declared the Governor of Quintan Roo Roberto Borge Angulo, on Tuesday, February 3rd.
“This modern hospital project will feature state of the art hospital services for the people of this state. It will be one of the most important projects to be consolidated this year in Quintana Roo and will help residents of the south, especially Chetumal, to have access to high specialty medical attention without having to go out of state,” he said.
The governor explained the Specialty Hospital and Oncology Unit will start the second stage of the Health City project. It will be located next to the Unit of Medical Specialties for Breast Cancer Detection and Diagnosis on the Chetumal- Bacalar Highway, benefitting more than 147,000 people.
“The facility will cover a space of more than 8,500 meters and will be the first third-level medical attention
center supported by the federal and state governments in Quintana Roo, thanks to the effort of this administration to provide health for all,” Borge Angulo said.
It will have 30 beds, six chemotherapy rooms, four for adults and two pediatric, an intensive therapy area, two operating rooms, an equipment and sterilizations unit, post surgical recovery, outpatient attention rooms, social work, clinical file, pathology laboratory, clinical analysis laboratory, imaging studies, general services, waiting room, public restrooms, hospitalization and external construction.
“Thanks to this high specialty hospital infrastructure, which is practically a reality, we will provide more and better health services and hospital spaces with modern equipment to the people of Quintana Roo. It is one more achievement of the work we are doing together with the Federal Government,” Borge Angulo said.
State Health Secretary Juan Ortegón Pacheco commented that the hospital will also have a linear accelerator and offer brachitherapy, a treatment option effective for many types of cancer, such as breast, prostate, cervico-uterine and other types. The treatment is performed on an outpatient basis and can be used on its own or together with other therapies, such as surgery, external radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
“The lineal accelerator will make it possible to provide radiotherapy for the treatment of many different
tumors,” Borge Angulo concluded.
