Oscar de la Renta Pediatrics Care Center in Punta Cana

President Danilo Medina traveled to eastern La Altagracia province to attend the opening of the Oscar de la Renta Pediatrics Care Center in Punta Cana. The center will service a population of around 15,000 children that live in Verón and the Punta Cana tourism areas. Also attending the opening was First Lady Cándida Montilla, the president of the Grupo Puntacana Frank Rainieri and Annette de la Renta, widow of Oscar de la Renta.

The health center was made possible through a strategic alliance between the Ministry of Public Health, the National Health Service (SNS) and the Fundación Grupo Puntacana, the Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio (USA) and the Edward Vía College Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM), a private, non-profit osteopathic medical school located on the campus of Virginia Tech in Blaskburg, Virginia (USA). Dominican resident in Ohio, Rosario Mallen has been the liaison with the Akron Children’s hospital.

The center has a capacity to offer a range of services in ambulatory rehabilitation, general, family and preventive medicine, imaging, lab services, 24-hour emergency services and dental services.

While in the Punta Cana area, President Medina also delivered the expansion of the Instituto Agropecuario that will operate now as a vocational high school, benefitting 280 students in Santa Cruz del Isleño. Also, in Macao, Medina inaugurated the Centro Educativo del Nivel Primario Camila Henríquez Ureña.
