- In addition, the areas of neonatal therapy, postpartum recovery and internal pharmacy were modernized.
Culiacán, Sinaloa, July 13, 2022.- In order to provide a better service to women and their families who come to the Women’s Hospital, Governor Rubén Rocha Moya inaugurated four operating rooms, and other care areas, so that this institution of the public health sector remains as the best place to be born in Sinaloa.
The state president arrived at this hospital accompanied by the president of the DIF Sinaloa System, Eneyda Rocha Ruiz; and by the Secretary of Health, Cuitláhuac González Galindo, where they were received by their general director, Dr. Aida Naneth Zamora Lares, to deliver these four operating rooms, three of them for general surgery and one for laparoscopic surgeries, as well as the modernization of the area of neonatal therapy, the postpartum recovery area and the internal pharmacy, which represented an investment of 31 million 860 thousand 756 pesos.
Before the tour of the new operating rooms, the state president met in the auditorium with the doctors and nurses of the Women’s Hospital, to whom he told them that he personally, like thousands of Sinaloans, have a lot to thank this institution, as he recalled that the last of his grandchildren, named Ricardo, was born here, and precisely last year in the midst of the COVID pandemic.
“It is therefore important that we expand and improve this hospital, my last grandson was born here, and he was born with his mother who had COVID and in the midst of the pandemic, which I thank you for. Everyone, like me, has some gratitude, especially when it comes to making Sinaloa the best place to be born, this is one of our purposes, for that I am very grateful to the doctors and all the staff who work in the hospitals,” he said.
During this meeting with the medical community, Governor Rocha took the opportunity to reiterate that with a budgetary effort that represents 75 million pesos, 1,113 nurses will be coded, that is, assigned their real job category, since they currently receive a salary as assistants and not as the profession they studied, and that recategorization will mean a salary increase, which is what they deserve.
Likewise, he referred to the commitment that he assumed just outside the Women’s Hospital, one day before taking office as governor, when he met with a group of doctors and nurses who demanded a position, since they had been working for years under contract in precarious conditions.
He stressed that this commitment to grant 400 places with its own resources has already been fulfilled, and this week, last Monday, another 100 more places were granted, this regardless of those granted by the Federation, as it also promised.
For his part, the Secretary of Health, Cuitláhuac González Galindo, said that for his dependency it is very important to join forces with each hospital, especially specialized ones such as this one, the Women’s Hospital, in order to provide these women and those children good care, which is the reason for being of the Health Sector.
“I want to thank all the support that the Governor has given us so that this and other projects are carried out by the Ministry of Health, because without a doubt in the diagnosis that we have been finding, the needs are many, the resource It will never be enough, but it is clear that with the will of a good government, with a decent workforce, with people who wear their shirts every day, with those doctors, nurses, colleagues, so that every child born in Sinaloa has the best because it is simply his right and he deserves it”, he concluded.
