Mexico's Institute for Social Security and Services for State Workers (ISSSTE) has awarded a consortium led by Sacyr Concesiones the concession of the new General Hospital of the South Regional Delegation of Mexico City.
The project includes the financing, design, construction and equipment of the hospital and its operation and maintenance for a period of 23 years. Prestadora de Servicios Alencastre, S.A.P.I. de C.V. is also part of the consortium.
The initial investment in construction and equipment is close to US$108.5 million. The construction stage will begin later this year and will carry on until the third quarter of 2019.
The General Hospital will serve around 1.2 million people in the south of the Mexican capital. It will have a total of 250 beds and 36 doctor's offices to provide 32 medical specialties, with a total area of 33,480 m2.
The South Regional Delegation hospital is the first in Sacyr’s concession system in Mexico, where the company is building three other hospitals, Querétaro, Pachuca and Acuña.
Sacyr is also bidding for the Garcia General Regional Hospital PPP, located in the region of Nuevo León.
Last July, Sacyr Concesiones entered the Mexican market with the renovation, maintenance and conservation project of the Pyramids-Tulancingo-Pachuca road for a period of 10 years.
