Modern hospital opens in the mountains of Cuba
More than 54,000 people in the town of Guisa, 800 Kms from Havana, in the province of Granma, have benefited from the new clinic equipped with state-of-the-art technology and comfortable rooms.
Dr. Luis Alberto Chavez, the clinic's director, told the Cuban News Agency that the new facility is an expansion of an existing one. It offers services of endoscopies, biliary drainage, and orthopedics, among others.
The doctor highlighted the importance of the clinic, as now patients can receive medical assistance near their homes instead of traveling to the city of Bayamo for any health treatment.
Chavez added that both the emergency center and the intensive care unit of the facility were expanded, while all rooms including doctor offices and waiting rooms were air-conditioned.
In addition, the new facility includes classrooms and a computer lab for the training of health technicians and doctors from Guisa, one of the highest regions in the province of Granma, where another 21 similar facilities are under construction.
