Hospital Médica TEC 100 Querétaro and its local facility, Clínica TEC 100 San Miguel de Allende, have formed a partnership with H+, an investment and financial corporation.
CEO Oswaldo Váquez Cabrera, reported that the first changes made were to replace the Administrative Director, the Clinical Director and the Chief of Nursing.
He reported that new surgical equipment, a new CT-SCAN, and a new X-ray machine will be completely installed by the end of the year.
As the hospital is under new management, they will be going through approximately two years process to be certified. The hospital will be managed under the same standards of quality as International Joint Commission. Currently Clínica TEC 100 San Miguel de Allende is a level 2 hospital.
