Miami-based IBT won a $23 million contract to build a hospital in Peru.
IBT expects to finish construction of the 97,400-square-foot hospital and open it in 18 months.
The Miami-based company will build the hospital in Pacasmayo, a seaside city in Peru. Pacasmayo is located in Peru’s La Libertad region, which has a population of 48,000.
The Pacasmayo Hospital will be built with steel-reinforced concrete and other earthquake-resistant materials.
Services available at the hospital will include emergency care, ultrasound procedures, deliveries, laboratory analysis, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation, sales of pharmacy products and sterilization.
The Miami-based company has an eight-year history of building hospitals in Peru. IBT is the main shareholder of companies that operate three Peruvian hospitals. – Mike Seemuth
