With growth of the Chapala region’s expatriate community surging at an all-time high, the expansion of high quality health care services only adds to the area’s magnetism for retirees.
In September, ground was broken for the Promotora de la Salud Hospital complex, an off-shoot of the Clínica Mascaras that is now under construction on the Chapala-Jocotepec highway opposite the Chula Vista Country Club.
More recently plans have been unveiled for the Ribera Medical Center (RMC), another privately-operated hospital facility to be built just off the Libramiento by-pass, across the road from El Dorado residential development.
Associates of the project came to town early this week to move forward on obtaining permits from the Chapala government. While here, they sat down for an interview with the Guadalajara Reporter to outline pertinent details.
The promotion team is led by Luis Antonio Michel Ruelas, general director of the Vallarta Medical Center, Puerto Vallarta business magnate and politician Humberto Famanía Ortega, project architect Julio Marrón, and lakeside physician Santiago Hernandez-Martinez.
