Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. - Puntacana Foundation began construction on the Pediatric Unit in Veron’s Primary Attention Clinic, to build a more suitable area to attend infants’ medical needs and separate children and adult patients, reducing the risk of contagion from infectious diseases.

The unit will also feature a waiting room, doctors’ office, baths and vaccination area, of the structure located in eastern La Altagracia province.

The ADEMI Foundation, Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Public Health Ministry, Corazon Turquesa and Tricana collaborate with the project.

Puntacana Foundation director Paul Beswick said the project “aims to increase the number of children treated and optimize the ambulatory medical consultations for the children of needy families in the community of Veron, and thusly the quality of the collective public health service in that zone will be strengthened.”

“The approximate population of children younger than 12 years in Verón is 4,000. In the clinic we take care of around 25 infantile patients daily,” Beswick said.
