It is expected that in May the bidding process will start so that construction can start no later than October. This project involves the design and construction of four hospitals: pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology; medical, surgical and one for oncology and transplants. It is anticipated that construction will take about 3 years.

Elperiodico.com.gt reports that "... In addition to the four hospitals, there will also be outpatient services, a pharmacy, radiotherapy, morgue, blood bank, over 2000 parking spaces, family inn, kitchen, helipad and administrative area for archiving, storage, maintenance, laundry, changing rooms and a chapel. The limitation of physical spaces in hospitals requires the construction of this hospital complex. The pediatric hospital and the kidney transplant hospital will be pioneers in the country. "
