Mexico City - The Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) has announced they will invest one billion peso for the purchase of more than 20,000 hospital beds, which will replace half of the existing beds in the medical units and clinics of the Institute.

The general director of the IMSS, Tuffic Miguel says the investment in the new beds is in addition to the 12 new hospitals and 40 new clinics that are budgeted within the infrastructure plan of the current government.

He says that total infrastructure investments are nearly 20 billion pesos, which include four hospitals and 17 family medical clinics that have already been inaugurated.

He noted that in the coming months, the new hospitals being built in León and Querétaro will begin operating.

Tuffic Miguel explained that 5.3 billion peso are being invested in medical equipment for Nuevo Leon, Yucatan, Guanajuato and Mexico City. In Jalisco, 1.5 billion is earmarked for medical infrastructure and state-of-the-art equipment.
