Because that in Quintana Roo there is no tertiary hospital in the public sector, the state Health Secretariat reached an agreement with the High Specialty Regional Hospital of the Yucatan Peninsula for attention to quintanarroenses.
The Secretary of Health of Quintana Roo, Flavio Carlos Rosado, explained that this agreement will bring benefits to the local population, which may be referred to Yucatan for care in specialties such as pediatrics, ophthalmology, internal medicine, psychiatry, pulmonology, support for the elderly, rheumatology and even kidney transplants, as well as pulmonary rehabilitation of patients who had coronavirus.
According to the secretary, “it is an agreement of relevance for public health, since it will allow greater attention to the population, this being one of the demands that is made, which is to increase the health offer, but above all it was agreed that the The issue of paperwork is quick, care is expedited and even the Secretary of Health explained that the first patients have already been referred to the hospital.”
The aforementioned hospital is located in Mérida and is dependent on the Ministry of Health, where 33 highly specialized medical services will be provided for Quintana Roo residents who do not have some type of social security.
The approach with the general director of the Yucatecan hospital, Alfredo Jesús Medina, occurred after the reference that was already made when Carlos Rosado was a delegate of the Mexican Social Security Institute in Quintana Roo, a time when they worked hand in hand. Therefore, he was again chosen to offer services that are not currently available in the state.
When considered by the treating physician, the transfer will be made to the third level to address the issue of patient health, without having to wait for a long time and receive close attention.
Given the population growth of Quintana Roo, one of the challenges that the entity has is to increase the health offer, especially in high specialty, which is why the state government has made efforts, even achieving that the Security Institute and Social Services of State Workers (ISSSTE) commit to increase the infrastructure in the municipalities.
