The Secretary of Health, Daniel Díaz Martínez made the announcement this Friday and stated that this change is due to structural failures presented by CAISES Colón, after more than 25 years of service.
He reported that some structural damage has been identified that puts the integrity of personnel and users at risk; For this reason, it is necessary to vacate the property so that a final opinion can be made by the Secretary of State Infrastructure.
There has been an approach by the State Health Secretariat with the Municipal Government of Irapuato, for the request of the donation of a property for the replacement of this Health Center.
And if it is no longer feasible to continue using the facilities, follow the process for donating said property.
