LOS ANGELES, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Nestled on a 1,500-acre private peninsula on the north end of Banderas Bay in the Mexican state of Nayarit, Punta Mita is known as a top vacation spot for household names like Jennifer Lawrence, Vince Vaughn, and Kylie Jenner, as well as tech titans like Bill Gates. Recognizing the need for accessible healthcare services for this residential community and resort, Los Angeles-based industry veteran and fertility specialist Dr. Sam Najmabadi, along with additional investors, will open the first full-service hospital, Punta Mita Hospital, in May 2017.
Dr. Najmabadi, a multiple Top 10 Doctor and Patients' Choice Award recipient, had the idea for the hospital when he and his wife decided they wanted to retire in Punta Mita. "We started looking at available medical services and realized there was a need for improvement. We felt we could deliver high quality, compassionate care combined with the latest in technology and cutting edge medicine to this piece of paradise." Widely regarded as a leader in his field in fertility and reproductive health and having worked with a number of Hollywood's biggest celebrities, Dr. Najmabadi's mission is always to provide the highest quality fertility care. His high success rates per SART/CDC reporting system are unparalleled.
With the help of Dr. Najmabadi, the 13,000 square foot hospital will rival some of the most advanced medical establishments in the U.S by bringing state-of-the-art technology and equipment to Mexico. According to the World Health Organization, 48.5 million couples worldwide were unable to have a child. Punta Mita Hospital is hoping to combat that number by being the first in Mexico to carry the embryoscope. The embryoscope is an incubator that holds an embryo for 3-5 days and features time-lapse photography. It photographs the embryos every 7 minutes at different depths and allows doctors to have real time evaluation, which improves success rates significantly. Punta Mita Hospital will also be releasing it's own app that provides 911 related technology and location tracking for ER services.
