Punta Pacifica Hospital Expands Services

The John Hopkins-affiliated Punta Pacifica Hospital has created a new network of medical services called Pacifica Salud, which will help strengthen the world-class level of health care available in Panama.

Located in the heart of Punta Pacifica, the hospital is one of the Panama City’s most respected assets, providing top-level care in a modern, state-of-the-art facility. Considered one of the top hospitals in the region, the hospital provides Punta Pacifica residents easy access to the type of health institution they would find in most modern cities. Positioned as the “most complete and technological medical center in Panama and the region,” the hospital attracts medical tourists from around the region, looking for top quality care and affordable prices.

Pacifica Salud will serve as the new brand for the hospital, as it expands and groups services, the hospital announced. The change will “offer more growth opportunities to our family of collaborators” and “further ensure the professional development of our specialist physicians,” Maury Alejandra Rios, marketing, and communications manager of Pacifica Salud said in a statement. The company will “continue to invest more and more in infrastructure and technology, raising the high standards of quality of service and security that have characterized us in these 11 years of trajectory.”

As part of the Pacifica Salud initiative, the hospital will be expanding into other parts of Panama, including a new hospital in Costa del Este, “which will meet the same quality, safety, and technology standards as the current one in Punta Pacifica,” according to the statement.

The hospital recently announced it has extended its 10-year affiliation with John Hopkins Medicine International, one of the most respected names in the industry.

The consulting services provided by Johns Hopkins “include the development of clinical, quality and patient safety programs with the shared goal of raising health standards in Panama,” the hospital said.
