Clinica Tec 100 Bajio San Miguel de Allende
Hospital Medica Tec 100 in Queretaro has taken over the operations at Hospital De La Fe, now known as Clinica Tec 100 Bajio, and is currently in the process of upgrading the facilities and bringing in highly qualified staff to comply with the standards of certification for Mexico and internationally accreditation. The concept of a community hospital will remain, with the support of the full services available at Medica Tec 100.
The current office building adjacent to the hospital is still owned and managed by the previous administration. Clinica Tec 100 will be establishing consulting offices and services in the new building to the west of the hospital.
As the hospital is still in transition and renovation, the information below will be changing. We will do our best to keep this information as accurate as possible.

In situations demanding heroic measures, the hospital has information for informed consent to either perform or withhold such measures.
If the patient and/or their primary care doctor have communicated beforehand with the hospital staff that they do not want any heroic measures be taken and only comfort and care be administered, or any treatment procedures in between, then their wishes will be respected. If a life-saving medical procedure is already started then it will not be stopped.
By law, Advanced Directives will not be honored in cases of accidental injuries which may have criminal implications, or in an attempted suicide.
