Hospital CIMA Puebla
Hospital CIMA Puebla, located in the State of Puebla, Mexico with a population of 6.2 million, began construction in 1998. The facility was designed to open with 54 beds (40 medical/surgical beds, 4 ICU beds and 4 Pediatric/NICU beds) and a shelled-in space for up to 100 total beds. Local physician shareholders supported the construction of a stand-alone medical office building, (like those at Hospital CIMA Chihuahua, Hospital CIMA San José, Hospital CIMA Monterrey and Hospital CIMA Hermosillo), which was expected to be built during the final construction phase of the Hospital. The project capital structure had essentially equal partners among three classes: IHC, local physicians and local business leaders. The latter two groups never recovered from the severe economic downturn in Mexico in 1994 to 1995 and the hospital was only partially completed due to lack of capital resources.
Hospital CIMA Puebla was to be a full-service, acute-care medical and surgical hospital. It was planned to provide a full range of diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency medical and surgical services. It was to have a total of three operating rooms, plus two delivery rooms and a combined LDR. Ancillary departments were going to provide diagnostic and treatment capabilities with state-of-the-art imaging technology (CT, ultrasound, nuclear medicine and a cardiac catheterization suite). This hospital opened for ambulatory services but never became a full-fledged inpatient facility.
The project was ultimately sold to the federal government in Mexico, recovering IHC’s investment, for use as a government hospital.
