Union says old hospital in Heredia to be sold

The union that represents the nation’s public health workers wants to know if the former Hospital San Vicente de Paul is on the block.

The Unión Nacional de Empleados de la Caja y la Seguridad Social said in a news release Monday that members had heard of the possible sale of the structure. Medical services are now in a new hospital, but not all of the support services have been moved.

The union said that Mario Zamora, the minister of security had outlined a plan to turn the site into a bus terminal, public offices and commercial rentals. Empresa de Servicios Públicos de Heredia was to finance the project, the union said.

Considering the shaky financial status of the Caja, the union said it would like more information before a deal is struck.
