The Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social says it is making a major investment to improve conditions in the Hospital de Golfito.
The health agency said it would spend 230 million colons or
about $450,000. Part of the work will be to protect the
hospital, its staff and patients against fire, floods and other disasters.
The project is a big one and includes the ceilings, floors, walls and rebuilding certain sections. The hospital has about 400 staffers and serves a population of about 36,000, the Caja said.
