Hospital Metropolitano Expands in Costa Rica

The medical facility will open, during the first half of 2011, two new offices in Tibás and Heredia.

Monday, January 24, 2011

Hospital authorities reported that only in medical equipment they have invested $ 1 million, and that the opening of the center in Heredia is planned for March.

"The medical center expansion will continue in 2011 - due to injection of capital made by Monte Cristo Group (owned by the Durman Esquivel family) when it acquired majority of the shares in September 2010," explained El Financiero.
