It should be noted that the hospital, located in the Posadas Health Park, has been operating in full since 2010. “There were three specialists in the old building. Today we are a team of 14 employees, led by Ms. Moira Mazzanti, who provide care in the office and in various sectors of the hospital,” Maimo explained.
A team of professionals performs outpatient tasks as well as individual attention in the sectors of surgery, hospitalization and oncology. “We will take care of visiting each of the patients to find out what kind of diet they should follow. This includes adequacy or adjustment according to pathologies. In addition, everyone is assessed and meal plans are tailored to the needs,” he said.
“The biggest problem we face is the persistence and persistence of the patient to feel good and come back to meet with consultations. It is important that you feel comfortable so that you are motivated. In addition, we hold free and open talks for obese and diabetic patients on Wednesdays and Fridays,” concluded the professional.
