Department of Health to move to new headquarters in 2025

By 2025, the Health Department (DS) will have a new headquarters in the Monacillos buildinglocated in San Juanwhose acquisition cost $25 million in Capex funds, announced the Secretary of Health on Wednesday, Carlos Mellado Lopez.

The move, which will begin this year, is a response, according to a press release, to the significant deterioration of the current facilities, which are affected by structural problems, lack of maintenance and the ravages caused by past natural disasters.

“The current DS facilities have suffered considerable deterioration over the years. Structural problems, lack of proper maintenance, natural disasters and insufficient space have affected the operation and efficiency of the Department’s central offices.”Mellado Lopez said in written statements.

The document states that the current DS facilities have serious problems that affect their operation and their structure has suffered considerable damage, particularly after the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria. In addition, after these events, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommended the demolition of some structures due to problems with land subsidence and potential risks to the health and safety of employees and visitors, according to parameters of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
