“We are in a process of expansion, not only in space, but also in health care capacity,” its director Joaquin garcia Salabarria told Prensa Latina.

 

“A project sponsored by the Ministry of Public Health is aimed at increasing the number of beds and renew technology, so we can achieve a higher level of development,” he said.

 

He recalled that the clinics was established in the 80s to deal with the diplomatic corps accredited in Cuba, but in the 90s it broadened its scope to treat not only foreigners living in Cuba, but also others who travel to get medical attention there.

 

He said that the institution made nine million convertible pesos in 2014, “a modest contribution to the development of public health and the country,” noted Garcia, who also referred to scientific events held in the clinics, including one to be held soon related to the treatment of patients in serious condition, and another about spinal surgery, both to be attended by foreign experts.
