Hospital Facilities – Florence Health System Medical Center
Dr. Fernando Garcia and Team, whom are among the most experienced bariatric experts in all of Tijuana, announce that they will be working in affiliation with Florence Medical Center in Tijuana. This move will alleviate the overcrowding of their current facilities and provide Dr. Garcia Team patients with the highest quality of care along with advanced surgical technology superior to other facilities.
Florence Health Systems Hospital offers two state of the art surgical suites featuring such high tech items as intermittent pneumatic compression boots, which are a therapeutic device to improve venous circulation during surgery to prevent deep vein thrombosis post operatively.
The surgical suites offer state of the art laparoscopic equipment for the patients safety and convenience. Florence is equipped for technically demanding heart surgery and it has a full line of hemodynamic and cardiac support equipment. There is a fully equipped ICU with life support equipment for emergencies. A full radiology department guarantees that bariatric patients will have a complete radiology study post operatively to check for any staple line disruptions. Florence also has a fully equipped laboratory, which is located in-house for diagnostics and patient safety.
Florence Health Care was built in 1996 as a full service general hospital. Florence offers 14 patient rooms dedicated to bariatric patients, and each room is equipped for a patient and their support person. The hospital also offers other specialties as neurology, orthopedics, traumatology, gynecology, cardiology, plastic surgery and general surgery.
Florence has a cafeteria open for the support persons accompanying surgical guests. The hours of operation are from 7 am to 8 pm offering a full line of organic vegan foods. There are restaurants and shops within close proximity to the hospital for those that prefer alternate foods.
The nursing staff at Florence is 90% bi-lingual, to provide comfort and security for medical tourists using these facilities. Safety is our number 1 priority. The hospital building is completely self-contained with backup generator systems and water filtration systems.
Because the Florence Health Facility is so complete, it offers a safe and caring environment for American and Canadian patients, who choose to travel to Tijuana for medical care.
Dr. Garcia and Florence Health use only Coviden or Ethicon staplers and staples to insure patient safety. Florence Health, in conjunction with Dr. Garcia and Team are a winning combination of technology, safety and convenience.
