Agreement signed for the temporary relocation of the ULAPS from Las Cumbres

Authorities from the Social Security Fund (CSS) and the Panama Metro SA signed an inter-institutional agreement for the construction of a new Basic Polyclinic “Dr. Edilberto Culiolis”, in Las Cumbres, which will replace the Primary Health Care Unit (ULAPS) that will be demolished, and will give way to the development of the Metro Line 1 expansion project to Villa Zaita.

Similarly, the agreement contemplates the temporary relocation of this ULAPS to Plaza Villa Zaita, while the new facilities of the polyclinic are delivered, which is projected for within 36 months, with the completion of the expansion project of the Line one.

The modernization of the transportation system and health services are two pillars that are promoted with the development of the Villa Zaita Line 1 extension project of the Panama Metro, which seeks to benefit more than 300,000 people.

Dr. Enrique Lau, general director of the CSS, said that this project represents the modernization of both transportation and the care that the CSS offers to the population of North Panama.

He stressed that with this agreement the services provided to the population of the area will not be interrupted, and the country will be able to continue advancing with this new transportation infrastructure that will continue to position us as the best in the region.

Regarding the new Basic Polyclinic, Dr. Lau Cortés indicated that a significant improvement is being made related to the quality and complexity of the services provided; In addition, the Hemodialysis Service will be included for patients with chronic renal insufficiency, who currently have to go to other sites for dialysis.

Likewise, the new polyclinic will have other services where the work of specialists will be incorporated, which will decongest other Executing Units that serve patients in North Panama, such as the San Miguelito and JJ Vallarino polyclinics.

For his part, Eng. Héctor Ortega, general director of the Panama Metro, indicated that for this purpose an area of ​​1,200 square meters has been remodeled in Plaza Villa Zaita, located in front of the current Las Cumbres ULAPS so that the CSS can continue serving the insured in the northern area of ​​Panama, while the construction of the new polyclinic lasts.
