La Paz, Baja California Sur.- In Baja California Sur, the transformation of medical units is progressing, such as Loreto Hospital, which already has more specialists and a better supply of medicines, Governor Víctor Castro Cosío said during a visit that the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador arrived this Friday to that hospital.
In this ceremony where the president presented the health plan IMSS-Well-being promoted by his administration to achieve a qualitative improvement of the medical care provided in the states to people with the lowest incomes, Castro Cosío emphasized that Baja California Sur joined this scheme as would improve the dignity of the services offered to families who do not have any social security, through the federalization undertaken by the Mexican government.
In this activity, which took place in the presence of the Director General of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), Zoé Robledo Aburto, and the Federal Secretary of Health, Jorge Alcocera Varela, the governor said that this IMSS-Wellness model is already present in all state hospitals, which are receiving more support in terms of medical staff, supplies and infrastructure and system renewal.
In the presence of the mayor Paola Cota Davis, Castro Cosío said that through this sum of efforts made by the government of Mexico with the government of Baja California Sur, an investment of more than 231 million pesos is expected to improve facilities and equipment in hospitals and the first level of health units transferred by the state at IMSS-Dobrobit.
As an example, he cited the Loreto Hospital, which at the beginning of this administration had five specialist doctors, and until today there are 16 of them, who, with their timely work, develop more decisive surgical and therapeutic procedures for the needs of the population.
He reminded that with the sum of efforts with IMSS, the project of establishing a hemodialysis service in Loreto was finalized, which was a sincere request of the citizens of this municipality due to the economic costs and complications faced by patients with acute kidney failure and their families.
In BCS, we are united with the work carried out by President López Obrador so that all social sectors, especially the most vulnerable, have guaranteed access to free, dignified and humane quality healthcare, he concluded.
