“New Emergency Hospital in Jocotepec”
August 8, 2008
This just In
Officials including Jalisco Governor Emilio Gonzales and Jocotepec Mayor Felipe Rangel inaugurated the newly improved Jocotepec Malecon, including the colorful mosaic-encrusted fish sculptures and fountains.
A wonderful pedestrian walkway wraps around the horbor where boats can easily dock.
Speaking of docking the Fiesta Lago de Chapala tour boat docks at this very dock and treated the Governor and Major for a short ride along the Lake Chapala shoreline.
The Governor also had some other more serious official business to take care of while in the area. Along with Major Rangel he officially opened the new Hospital de Urgencias. The new Emergency Hospital will have three examination rooms, a treatment room, shock room, x-ray room, pharmacy, waiting room and office space.
Initially there will be eight beds for in-patient hospitalization and a four-vehicle ambulance fleet.
Previously Jocotepec had to rely on the Cruz Roja Mexicana (Mexican Red Cross) ambulance service based in Chapala.
So, Congratulations to all the government officials who helped make the new hospital a possibility and to all the workers and staff and others who helped make the new hospital a reality.
Well Done !
