Covid-19 has impacted the entire world, and our beloved Puerto Vallarta is no exception. The state of Jalisco has taken great preventative measures to “flatten the curve” and keep citizens and residents safe from the novel coronavirus. Puerto Vallarta as a municipality has gone above and beyond to keep residents informed and safe at this time. With the news of a brand new Center for Respiratory Diseases being built, we are happy to know that the proper measures are being taken to be proactive against the spread of Covid-19.
Considered a local and international milestone for its construction speed and for the implementation of temporary facilities and isolated rooms for intensive care.
The first Center for Respiratory Diseases will be open on Monday April 6th of 2020 (it began its construction last March 24th, 2020), providing facilities and the best medical attention for 18 patients at the same time.
The project’s main objective is to offer an ideal place to take care of people with respiratory diseases, such as those caused by the Covid-19, for that reason the first Center for Respiratory Diseases will be equipped with advanced technology including mechanical ventilators for intensive care. Plus, the best doctors and specialists of the Bay.
This initiative is led by the highly regarded Doctor Armando Joya, CEO of Grupo Médico Joya, which includes the San Javier Puerto Vallarta and San Javier Riviera Nayarit hospitals. In addition, Grupo Médico Joya has been working with SANMARÉ Health-Care Group since its opening in 2019.
The first Center for Respiratory Diseases is located next to Hospital San Javier Puerto Vallarta (Blvd. Fco. Medina Ascencio 2760, Zona Hotelera Norte).
Puerto Vallarta as well as the whole state of Jalisco has been issued a “stay-home” order until April 30. We wish everyone health and optimism during these unprecendented times. We know that we will beat this and come through the other side very soon. Stay safe amigos!
