"IBT is honored to contribute to the fabric of the Dominican Republic community by bringing the Dr. Hugo Mendoza Pediatric Hospital in Santo Domingo from design and construction into a turnkey building ready to use. Everything was meticulously planned to provide the best possible pediatric care. Since its inauguration in 2013, we are proud the hospital repeatedly receives recognition for exceptional quality," said Daniel Toledano, managing director of IBT of Miami.
The Dominican Republic's Presidential Offices of Information Technology and Communications (OPTIC) recognized the hospital for exceptional health and safety in food handling in a health-care environment. Among other awards, the four-story pediatric hospital holds the National Award for Quality granted by the Ministry of Public Administration.
The pediatric hospital is one of four hospitals in the "City of Health" complex built by IBT in the city of Santo Domingo. The Dr. Ney Arias Lora Traumatology Hospital nearby in the complex was one of only five hospitals in the Dominican Republic to be ranked on the most recent HospiRank list of best equipped hospitals in Latin America.
The hospital, with 190 beds in single and double rooms, is equipped with specialized pediatric equipment, operating rooms, an emergency room, medical offices, intensive care units, support services, and amenities.
Young medical professionals, whose goal is to humanize health services and integrate the community, lead the Dr. Hugo Mendoza Pediatric Hospital's modern management model. They prioritize the right to health of children and adolescents by providing universal and equal access to plans, programs, disease prevention, protection, treatment, and rehabilitation.
