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.
First hospital in concession in Mexico
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.

This entry into the Mexican concessions industry is part of the company's strategic plan, which is focused on the development of projects in the Americas, where it has a strong commitment to the development of infrastructures.
