New Hospital Building Inaugurated in San José
President Abel Pacheco Monday inaugurated a medical building of the San Juan de Dios public hospital in downtown San José.
The building was constructed in the 1940s but had been abandoned since 1993 because of construction faults that were recently repaired through a $4.5 million investment, according to a statement from Casa Presidencial.
This is a concrete work that shows our commitment to social security and our support dedicated to the consolidation of the Social Security System (Caja), Pacheco said.
The six-floor building will house an outpatient chemotherapy treatment center and a blood lab. The building will also have inpatient facilities for cardiology, infectious diseases, dermatology, respiratory therapy and kidney transplants for almost a million patients served by the San Juan de Dios Hospital.
