The new medical facility is up and running after its inauguration held in April of this year. The hospital is located in the soon-to-be completed Koral Center on the Carretera Transpeninsular at Km 24.5 midway between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Paulino Davos Sayrols is the hospital director, CEO and co-founder of H+ Hospital. The equipment is state-of-the art for the various areas offering mammography, tomography, ultrasonography, digital radiology and imaging. The blood bank will soon be ready for donors, a much-needed service in Los Cabos. Presently, the facility contains 16 spacious hospital rooms, some with ocean views. There are 4 beds in the isolated Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the surgical areas have 3 operating rooms and one for labor and delivery, plus a room for endoscopic procedures.
Emergency care is available with a trauma shock physician on call 24/7 for triage, observation, shock trauma and diagnostic. It is the only trauma center in all of Baja California Sur. There is a separate ambulance entrance in the rear of the building with bi-lingual personnel on duty at all times. All the glass is hurricane-proof and the hospital’s generator can keep the facility operating for five days in the event of an electrical outage.
The facility is one of three owned and operated by the same developers of H+ Hospital Los Cabos. One is located in Querétaro and the other is a clinic in San Miguel de Allende on the mainland of Mexico. These facilities allow for a medical base of 400 doctors
Seven years ago the medical project was but a dream. With the help of various financiers, the $25 million project reached its realization and today the 3-level plus basement structure stands proudly awaiting those from all walks of life in need of medical services. All private insurance plans are accepted, with the exception of Medicare & Medicaid. There is one price list for all.
The Koral Center will soon be a “place that has it all, a place offering a style of life” with the Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel by Hilton, commercial shops and a string of restaurants in El Merkado, the market place, developed by the same owners as Flora Farm.
