CIMIC Group Executive Chairman Juan Santamaria said: “Modern healthcare infrastructure is foundational to the well-being of communities. We are proud to bring our experience in delivering health facilities and our ‘hospital-first’ approach to this project, which puts the needs of health workers, patients, and community at the forefront.
