Villaseñor emphasized the opportune timing of the installation of the new hospital, since it comes at a time when the city is focusing on a series of objectives designed for the growth of the municipality, and without a doubt the hospital will be of great importance for this tourist destination.
“By bringing an internationally recognized hospital of the best quality to Puerto Vallarta, we are guaranteeing that we are building our city with future vision, and that Puerto Vallarta will be all we yearned for and all that we want it to be,” stressed the mayor in reference to the new facility, which is modeled after the well-established Cornerstone Hospitals in the US.
The mayor stated that he was equally thankful to those who put their trust in the city of Puerto Vallarta by installing the hospital here, and expressed that the trust will be reciprocated on the part of the administration, by giving the new Cornerstone hospital the attention, monitoring and support required to keep the hospital in optimal operation. In response, the proprietor of the hospital, Raul Márquez, mentioned that the objective is to bring the most innovative medical services and technology to the people of Puerto Vallarta at reasonable prices.
After the blessing of the clinic, the mayor and his wife enjoyed a tour of the facilities and an explanation of some of the latest medical technologies therein. The facility includes 13 physician offices, four intensive care beds, three operating rooms, pre-op and post-recovery rooms and rooms for overnight stays.
Serving both the Mexican and foreign communities, the hospital and clinic offer the following services: orthopedics and traumatology, urology, anesthesiology, internal medicine, cardiology, general surgery, pediatrics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, an ENT specialist, ophthalmologist, allergist and a nutritionist, plus an array of other specialties such as oncology, rheumatology, rehabilitation, endocrinology, neurology, gastroenterology, hematology and dermatology.
The Cornerstone medical facilities are the first to offer health services 24 hours a day, seven days a week to the people of Puerto Vallarta, and the only specialized Radiology clinic in Western Mexico. The proprietor of Vallarta Cornerstone, Raul Márquez, commented that the city council has already contributed enough for the clinic to get to work in the municipality, since it has provided the facilities they need to fulfill its assignment. In addition, he said that he would do his best to see that the clinic's facilities and services continues to grow in prestige and quality.
