Construction companies in the province of Holguín boost this year an extensive program of construction works in the different areas of the health sector, as part of the projects aimed at improving the infrastructure of facilities in benefit of medical services.
The amount allocated to these actions in 2019 exceeds 14 million pesos and focuses on maintenance, remodeling and renovation of the centers of this branch, said Yaritza Almaguer González, head of this area at the Health Directorate in the eastern territory.
Almaguer highlighted the work carried out in 104 health institutions at the end of April, with an execution of more than 661 000 Cuban pesos, which shows the systematic way in which the builders work in the midst of certain limitations of basic resources demanded by the investor plan.
The plan for the year in this indicator was programmed mainly to polyclinics, nursing homes, stomatological clinics, a rehabilitation room, three hygiene facilities and the location occupied by the provincial center of electromedicine, she stressed.
These works are extended through several Holguín municipalities, although most of the them are carried out in facilities of the provincial capital, including the structural areas of the Lenin hospital, the surgical hospital Lucia Iñiguez Landin and the pediatric hospital Octavio de la Concepción de la Pedraja, as well as in specialized areas of these health facilites.
Ernesto Santiesteban Velázquez, first secretary of the Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba in Holguín, insisted on the systematic evaluation of the constructive programs of this sector in order to guarantee the quality and rational use of material resources allocated for each health facility. / RHC
