About This Project
With a $107 million investment and a collaboration with Johns Hopkins Medicine International, PRISA Group announced the groundbreaking of Dorado Beach Health, a new, state-of-the-art hospital facility that will raise the standard of care on the Island and maximize its potential as a medical tourism hub for the region.
The vision is to create a unique health offering in Puerto Rico with enhanced clinical programs and the consulting and educational expertise of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Both organizations will work together in developing clinical training and educational opportunities for the hospital’s medical faculty and staff.
The medical facility will incorporate a total of 104 rooms; with eight (8) Intensive Care Units, two (2) Neonatal Intensive Care Units, 79 single patient private rooms and 15 suites. In addition to inpatient services, ambulatory services and emergency room, the development incorporates a 20,000 SF multi-specialty clinic providing integrated, coordinated and continued care to patients. A telemedicine facility will provide patients in Puerto Rico with direct access to Johns Hopkins Medicine experts in targeted specialties.
Among hospital specialties, Dorado Beach Health will provide patients with primary family care; emergency intensive and urgent care; vascular surgery; orthopedics and sports medicine and medical oncology. It will also provide general aesthetics surgery; anti-aging practice; health and wellness; woman’s health; obstetrics and gynecology; and specialties like ear, nose and throat; urology; gastroenterology and pulmonary care. It will offer most types of diagnostic tests including mammography, primary lab care and radiology.
Dorado Beach Health will also incorporate such hotel-style features as welcoming lobby spaces, warm lighting, signage & wayfinding and local art throughout. A predominant design focus of PRISA has been “nature as healer” with increased access to daylight and sweeping views of nature through extra-large windows in patient rooms, as well as a central, expansive outdoor healing garden which welcomes patients and can be appreciated from all public areas of the hospital.
The opening of the facility is scheduled for 2021.
