Tulum, Q.R. — The mayor of Tulum says that the new Tulum Hospital could be operational before the end of this year.
Tulum’s municipal president, Víctor Mas Tah, says that the hospital could be operating before the end of the year, so municipal authorities are carrying out the corresponding procedures before the federal and state Secretaries of Health to release the resources for equipment as soon as possible.
Mas Tah says the City of Tulum will be contributing 20 million peso with the balance coming from federal and state authorities so that the hospital can be up and running as soon as possible. He says the new hospital is a priority for his municipal administration as well as a demand by residents who have to travel to Playa del Carmen, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Cancun, Valladolid and Mérida for specialized medical care.
“We are analyzing the equipment of the Tulum Hospital with state governor Carlos Joaquín González and in Mexico City I have had meetings with authorities from the Ministry of Health. This is why we are giving the good news that in the few next days, there will be a meeting with federal and state authorities to define the release of resources for the start of the hospital equipment in the coming weeks,” he said.
He said that there is good progress in the negotiations and management for the equipment and operational start of the Tulum Hospital. The work agenda is being defined and with that, we will be able to provide medical service to the residents of the municipal seat as well as to Akumal, Chemuyil, Macario Gómez, Francisco Uh May, Manuel Antonio Ay and Cobá.
