Post by Chapalamed on Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:22 pm

Update. The developers of the hospital met with several of our doctors and service providers and we toured the hospital construction site this past weekend.  More photos of the current construction are  available on CHAPALA MED's FACEBOOK page.

The hospital is located on the LIBRAMIENTO across from the Radisson/EL DORADO development.  

Our hospital construction is slated to be done (HAS TO BE DONE) by Dec. 2019 and will open Jan. 2020.
When it opens it will be fully functional, Here is a brief summary of what it will offer to the community:

1. Full imaging - MRI, CT scan, Mammogram, Bone density, Ultrasounds
2. 2-3 Operating rooms
3. Cardiac Cath lab. - Heart attacks and strokes can be treated
4. Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
5. BLOOD BANK and Oncology/Chemotherapy Unit
6. 14 Patient rooms in the first phase
7. Emergency room
8. Hospital's own ambulances
9. Will be able to take National and INTERNATIONAL insurances (legally).
(U.S. law does not permit direct billing to MEDICARE at this point in time)
It is not an IMSS hospital or a SEGURO POPULAR facility.
10. Dialysis unit

Just to clarify: the hospital is located in San Antonio Tilaycapan, not Ajijic.

Correct……..
The entire Libramiento is either in the confines of SAT or Chapala pueblos, of the Municipio of Chapala.

Looking good. That December completion looks like a tough undertaking though.

Why the eye roll?  I¨m  a little slow today and don´t get it. People are always wanting some kind of landmark identification of where something is, rather than a street address.

WHY the eye roll? Go back and read the first post. The place he is talking about is clear at the other end of this lakeside area but the discussion following is as though it is the new place on the Carreterra in the SAT location. This goes beyond the normal "thread drift" and passes into "didn't read" the OP.
Just a little chiding...no harm meant,

Gringal, the hospital talked about in this thread is the same distance up the Libramiento as the distance PAST the Libramiento for the San Antonio Hospital that just opened.

I still don´t know what you are talking about?

The first post says quite clearly "Libramiento" and those photos sure don´t lie and doesn´t look like "at the other end of this lakeside area", to me.
You can see the abandoned project up on the mountainside of San Antonio T.
The Carretera is never mentioned and the construction doesn´t look anything like the OTHER new hospital in San Antonio T., which is on the Carretera.
Maybe you are having a hard time accepting the fsct that SAT is going to have 2 hospitals???   lol!

I do not know a whole lot about construction but I am having a problem believing this project will be completed by December 1st and the hospital up and running in January. That seems awfully optimistic.

Anything's possible. They built that whole Autozone in 3 months which I found amazing.

Sure, anything is possible. However, there is a big difference between an Autozone and a hospital. But, we’ll all see come December 1st and again in January. There will be a big grand opening or there won’t. It makes no difference to me. I am just making an idle observation. As I said, I don’t know much about construction.

All depends on many people they put on the job, pay overtime, and crack the whip. There might be a "performance guarantee" which incurs a penalty or loses a finish time bonus. Great incentive to get it done on time, but as you say, time will tell. It´s hard to get water to run uphill even when your life depends on it.

HUGE difference. And not just a hospital by Jan 1st, but "fully functional". That means: docs hired and in place, RNs in place, all sophisticated equipment delivered, functioning, operating tech staff trained and in place, OR ready to do surgery, maintenance and housekeeping staffed and ready to go, ambulance purchased, stocked, staffed, and ready to roll, admitting department ready to go, billing ready to go, food service stocked and ready to go and on and on.

A little less than 4 months. . . we will see. Hope you can do it.

Just curious, why would anyone care if they finish or not? There is a hospital in San Antonio so the second one is irrelevant unless they offer better service, better doctors and or is cheaper..no?


For surgeries that are not emergency I shop the hospitals and rather go to Guadaljara anyways ..

I believe this new one is one tier higher than the first one. They will be both priced towards those that have insurance (in otherwards expensive if you're paying cash).

Paying a high price in an emergency situation is better than the alternative of REALLY paying the highest price of all.
