The Cabinet Council authorized the Social Security to proceed with the addendum for the construction and equipment for the Ciudad de la Salud for an amount of $36,786,886 balboas.

The addendum with the company Construcciones Hospitalarias, S.A., contemplates the integral services of technical studies, urban and architectural designs, elaboration and approval of plans, study of environmental impact category 2, construction, financing and equipment of the Ciudad de la Salud.

The work presents an advance of 52%, generates direct jobs for 770 people, and it is expected that in the coming months the work force will double when the construction works intensify.

Among the services that will be offered in the Ciudad de la Salud are Cardiology, Nephrology, Maternal-Neonatal, Radiology, Intensive Care, Sterilization, Blood Bank, among others.

This hospital center includes some 295 doctor's offices, more than one thousand beds, 39 operating rooms covered with nickel-chromium, laboratories, more than 3,500 parking spaces and a heliport, among other facilities.

In addition, within the Ciudad de la Salud the facilities of the National Oncological Institute (ION) will be housed, after which in June 2016 it will formalize the transfer to improve patient care. This work is waiting for endorsements to try to be ready at the beginning of 2019.

The ION would occupy 20% of the Ciudad de la Salud, in an area of 86 thousand meters including two buildings, 250 hospital beds, 10 operating theaters and 97 clinics.
