Miami-based IBT Group reached a construction milestone by completing 20 percent of a new hospital in El Salvador.

An arm of the United Nations called the Office of Project Services selected IBT to build the new San Miguel Regional Hospital.

It will be the first tertiary hospital serving patients in the region east of San Salvador, the capital city of El Salvador.

The $60 million hospital construction project is expected to continue into 2019.

The 160-bed San Miguel Regional Hospital will have five operating rooms, three emergency rooms and an intensive care unit.

Other features of the 355,209-square-foot hospital will include facilities for nephrology care, ambulatory medical procedures and advanced imaging, plus a pharmacy and a blood laboratory.

According to IBT, the government of El Salvador will oversee another contractor that will furnish and equip the hospital.

The hospital will provide specialty medical care to an estimated 212,000 patients in its first two years of operation, reducing the number of patients at congested specialty hospitals in San Salvador by as much as 15 percent. — Mike Seemuth
