Around October of last year construction began on a new community hospital in Tulum.
This project is an attempt to give better medical care and health services to the residents of Tulum and the many rural communities located nearby. This new community hospital will have a capacity of 12 beds with the option to add more in the near future, and is expected that this will help meet the demands of growth over the next 15 years.
The new hospital was granted a budget of $95 million pesos and there’s no set date for completion. But a couple of weeks ago we went to Tulum and could attest to the progress of construction. As you can see in the pictures, the hospital is in the last stages of construction.
Just a few months ago we reported the opening of Costamed Tulum, which offers general surgery, gastroenterology, OB/Gyn, trauma, among other health specialties, as well as X-rays, CAT scans, and ultrasound services.
This need of new medical facilities is in response to the impressive growth that Tulum has been experiencing. Even when it’s a small town it’s currently the fastest growing city in Mexico, with a population that went from around 10,000 people in 2008 to around 32,000 by 2015 people living and working in Tulum, plus a floating population of 15,000 to 20,000.
