Press Release: New Medical Centre for Cabarete and Sosua

West Indies Real Estate welcomes new Centre of Excellence on the North Coast

On July 1st 2009 the latest medical Clinic CENTRO MÉDICO CABARETE, opened on the outskirts of Cabarete in the town of Sosúa.
This state of the art  269,000 square feet medical facility is the brain child of Dr. Roberto Spitale.
This is a family project, where you can find Roberto's father, mother, and wife assisting to make things run smoothly in the clinic. Their idea was to provide a medical facility in close proximity to the residents of the Sosúa and Cabarete region and give a more personal service to entire North Coast.
Even so, the process of building the Clinic took a great deal of time and effort for it to come to fruition.
Dr. Spitale, a neurosurgeon, started a Foundation to provide neurological services for people in need.  Unfortunately, due to the complexity of these types of procedures, clinical services were a necessity. This meant that the same patients struggled to find the costs to pay for the hospital accommodation even though his services were free.  The idea of starting his own Clinic would allow him to offer his services to the needy without cost to them.
His Foundation, FINC, is supported by many generous donations from all over the world to ensure he can offer these services.
Now, with his new clinic open for business and already creating a stir amongst the local community, he can offer a full service to all, with the latest equipment and highly trained staff on site 24 hours.
Although the doctors are local, it is possible to find medical staff who can speak a number of languages including German, French, English, and even Czech, which is a great benefit in an area which is one of the main tourist areas of the Caribbean.
The background staff in the clinic amount to around 30 people plus the doctors.
Some specialists are booked by appointment but the Clinic is fully operational Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm, Saturday 8am till midday with General medicine, paediatrics, gynaecology, surgeons and orthopaedics.  The 24 hour emergency rooms are fully manned at all times and, where needed, the hospital can send out its own ambulance.
The hospital, which is still refining its facilities, currently offers:
24 hour lab work, X-ray facilities, Mammogram, Sonagraph, CT scan and Cardiology
There are 2 surgery operating theaters and a neo-natal unit, where the incubators are already filling up with premature babies. There are 22 patient care overnight beds, including private and semi-private 4 rooms, 3 Post –op/ICU for intensive care and emergency observation units.
Some local insurances are covered by this hospital and the ones that are not are being approached at the moment. Of course, if you were to have an emergency, and carry national insurance, you should be reimbursed if services are needed.    International insurance is naturally covered.
The modern and dramatic frontage to the hospital situated on the main highway between Sosúa and Cabarete opens onto a well designed and functional reception where visitors and medical staff come together before entering their individual consulting rooms.  A small cafeteria and children’s play area offers a much more casual feeling to this area, which has none of the older, frightening aspects for those who worry about entering a hospital.
All in all, this impressive landmark is now a very welcome addition for the residents and visitors to the area, where they can feel confident that they will be dealt with by a highly experienced medical team, surrounded by the latest technology.

Members of West Indies Real Estate have already used the services at the Clinic and can only praise the staff, facilities and treatment at this much needed new facility, which eliminates the need to travel to Puerto Plata or Santiago in an emergency or for more routine health care. 
Congratulations to Dr. Spitale and his team.
