This idea involves the temporary suspension of the Alfredo G. Paulson Hospital that works with health services in gynecology, obstetrics and other specialties related to women's health.
During 2020, due to the pandemic, Alfredo G. Paulson hospital, despite being a Covid-free hospital, had a significant decrease in the demand for its hospital services and occupancy which was close to 20% of its capacity. Therefore, there is a permanent interest in order to strength its charitable work and provision of a better service JBG decided to expand the portfolio of specialty and subspecialty services which will operate in Alfredo G. Paulson Hospital. For this purpose, this hospital center will temporarily suspend its activities as of March 19, for an approximate period of 8 months, time during which the necessary physical and technological enhancement adjustments will be made according to the objectives and operation of a hospital with such mentioned characteristics.
The gynecology service will continue to be provided to patients at the Luis Vernaza Hospital, while the obstetrics service, including emergencies and maternity, will be suspended until the Alfredo Paulson Specialties’ Hospital reopens. It is important to clarify that Luis Vernaza, Roberto Gilbert Children's Hospital and the Neuroscience Institute continue to provide their services with absolute normality. JBG is an NGO that aims to renew and innovate, always thinking of providing the best service to the community with the highest standards of quality and warmth in its care, thus also consolidating its mission of charity with the best hospital services.
