The construction works of the Ticul General Hospital are advancing at a good pace, it was reported after a supervision.
The head of the State Health Secretariat (SSY), Mauricio Sauri Vivas, and the director of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), Zoé Robledo Aburto, visited the work.
Upon completion in July 2024, the hospital will have 70 beds and 15 specialties, expanding health services in the region and throughout Yucatan.
The hospital will not only benefit the inhabitants of Ticul, but will alleviate the demand for hospitals in Mérida, improving the quality of medical care for all Yucatecans.
The Ticul General Hospital was brought out of limbo
The hospital, which had been paralyzed since 2011, will come to life thanks to the collaboration between the state government, the IMSS and the company Marhnos, which dropped the lawsuit.
The IMSS director estimated that the project will be completed in July next year, with 70 beds and services in various specialties.
The work responds to a commitment of Vila Dosal with the population of Ticul, after years of waiting.
The dialogue with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was essential to resolve the situation inherited from past administrations.
