The two works of the Third Level hospitals in Bolivia, promoted by the Ministry of Health and financed by the IDB, are advancing at a good pace. CASA SOLO participates in these projects, together with the engineering PGI and the Antares consultancy, under the Engest brand. It is expected that both works will be completed during the next year 2019.
The end of the works of the Hospital El Alto Sur is scheduled for June. With a surface of 21,000m², there is already an advance of 60% of the works. It is a general hospital with a strong specialization in oncology. It will be the first hospital in the Bolivian public network with a linear radiotherapy accelerator. Its construction is carried out by an accidental association between the construction companies Hermanos Málaga, of Peru, and Rubau, of Girona.
The works of the third level hospital in Potosí have an advance of 20%. With 27,000m² of surface and more than 25 specialties, it will be the last generation hospital of the city and the region. The association of companies that carries out the construction in this case is formed by the same Rubau and Otriz, of Madrid.
These two hospitals will be the only ones with category of third level located in cities at more than 4,000 meters above sea level. They are part of the development project promoted by the Ministry for the construction of more than 49 hospitals in the country, which needs to make a qualitative leap to its healthcare network.
From CASA SOLO we are very satisfied with the progress of the works of the Third Level hospitals in Bolivia and we hope that they will have a positive impact on the quality of life of all future users in the regions.
