The capacity of care provided at the Regional Hospital of Puerto Vallarta exceeded 300 percent, an over-saturation of the service that is being investigated to resolve the problem.

The solution is the construction of a new hospital during the next year in this municipality, reported Marco Antonio Muñoz Serrano, Secretary of Health of Jalisco.

In conjunction with the twenty-first State Conference of Nursing 2012 update, that take place in this city, he explained that the hospital services increased due to not only servicing the inhabitants of Vallarta at the Regional Hospital, but also the municipalities of the Region VIII health, the neighboring state of Nayarit, and even foreign residents.

Because the demand has tripled from the capacity figure, the Executive Project was developed by the Ministry of Health that justify the resources for a new hospital and are intended to be included in the new budget to be defined in October.

Muñoz Serrano noted that the transition in the State Government will not affect this new hospital plan since talks have begun with the next Governor, therefore, construction can being during the next year and be concluded at the latest in 2014.

Meanwhile, it was pointed out that conventions were established before the over-saturation between the Ministry of Health and private hospitals for operations such as pregnancies and hernias, and what is done with the beneficiaries of the Seguro Popular (Popular Insurance) so that it will absorb the costs of hospitalization.

He said that in order to build the new hospital unit, it will require a terrain with the characteristics necessary to project the growth of the demand that will happen in the next 20 years, "It is cheaper to build a new one than reshape what we already have, especially because the existing Regional Hospital has nowhere to grow."
