Construction crews have broken ground, and begun building a massive luxury hospital complex in Cancun. The Luximia development group responsible for the Puerto Cancun building complex is investing 200 million MXN (9.4 Million US) on the project. When fully completed the tower is set to feature 5 floors that will house 121 private practice doctor’s offices. The hospital is set to include top of the line medical equipment to cater to the needs of both locals and tourists.
A Unique Building Design To Go With The Look & Feel Of The Area
The Luximia development group is keen to ensure that the hospital complex will mix in well with the look and feel of the area. They’re not going to be building a traditional white hospital building that will stick out like a sore thumb in the middle of Puerto Cancun. Instead, the complex is going to feature dancing fountains, and a man-made lake in the shape of a stingray. To go along with an indoor parking facility all overlooking the ocean. The commercial directress of the project mentioned,
“Luximiamed won’t be a traditional medical complex. It’ll be a building with novel designs, and large spaces crafted by architect Enrique Manero. The man who designed the shark tower. A one of a kind residential building as it is the first one in the world in the shape of a shark fin. He continues to craft his legacy creating buildings that feature comfortable luxury spaces in Puerto Cancun.”
The Project Seeks To Bring Medical Tourism To The Cancun Region
According to the developers the medical complex is aimed at providing its services to both tourists, and locals. Currently, the medical landscape in Cancun is potentially not one that is overly inviting for people who are looking for prominent medical tourism spots. As of today, the Cancun area features a limited number of hospitals. Most of them are local clinics that are meant to treat minor ailments. One of the largest hospitals in the region is the Hospiten Cancun hospital that was built in 2003 by a Spanish Hospital company. Other than that most private options are smaller hospital buildings.
The fact that Cancun currently lacks a high-end hospital complex may be one of the reasons why the beach city isn’t necessarily a hot spot for medical tourism. With a hospital complex inside of Puerto Cancun the developers of the area are trying to create a safe haven for folks traveling for medical reasons.
In a sense people seeking treatment at the hospital complex would not even have to leave the Puerto Cancun area in search of food or other amenities. The complex already features a large shopping area, marina, and a golf course. Plus, tourists who unfortunately are injured while on vacation may access better care. The current active hospitals or medical facilities don’t necessarily boast great reviews online.
The Grand Opening Is Set For January 2024
Luximiamed medical complex is set to open in January 2024. Currently, the developers are selling off the 121 doctor’s offices that the building is set to feature. A doctor who wants to take their private practice to the Cancun area will have to pony up anywhere between 3 or 4 million pesos for the office space inside the complex.
The project is also set to provide a boost to the local economy. In the building process about 300 jobs are set to be created. Whether the building process will affect the current flow of traffic around the Puerto Cancun area remains to be seen! When the building is operational it will also provide north of 200 direct jobs to medical professionals in the area.
