Time is Life



By Karla Ortiz


Two years ago, what started as a small office idea was consolidated as the only 24/7 state-of-the-art emergency medical services with specialized doctors in the city.

Dr Emilio Ramírez, Medical Director of the UNIMED Hospital, and Dr Julio Carbajal explained on April 19, what they are doing and what is coming, in terms of technology in emergency services at the UNIMED Hospital presentation.

In San Miguel, there are only three specialized doctors. For a major medical emergency, one must travel to Celaya, Queretaro, or Leon, which means taking into account the distance one must travel to get critical care. In an emergency situation, this is the worst thing to have to consider.

UNIMED’s medical services are specially designed for foreigners, offering comfortable facilities with a fully bilingual staff. They also have their own ambulances that are also fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology for any need. All the staff, from doctors and paramedics, are certified to attend to emergency situations, something that no other medical center in the city has.

At this presentation, Ramírez  and Carbajal mentioned that they are working on the construction of a cardiac catheterization laboratory (Cath Lab), to be opened in October or November. Also under construction are three intensive care units (ICU), as well as 11 medical offices with specialized groups in cardiology and some other specialties.

Many hospitals have CT scans (computerized axial tomography), which can take days to deliver results. But in partnership with the CEII, they have acess to an MRI (magnetic resonance) scanner that can deliver results in minutes. This is the first time in history that San Miguel has this type of technology in its medical centers.

In addition, they have integrated with the Be Safe program of Be Well, a home alert system through an electronic pendant or a wireless system on the phone or cell phone. An immediate 24/7 medical response system can be activated by just by pressing a button that will indicate to Be Safe that bilingual emergency medical assistance is needed. Depending on the emergency, the person with keys of the house will be contacted to send a paramedic or medical assistance or can be provided by telephone directly with the UNIMED hospital doctor.
