Minister Dangui Oduber, on behalf of the government, expressed his joy, pride, and satisfaction with the vision of ImSan and developments in healthcare in Aruba. This is in line with the government's vision to improve the quality of healthcare in Aruba and to create a sustainable plan for Aruba so that the AZV fund will be sustainable in the future.
The entire process to convert the ImSan into a short-stay hospital had a price tag of more or less 60 million florins. The expansion and renovation of the ImSan generated 50 new jobs.
The entire process includes a Radiotherapy department, meaning that resident patients should no longer go abroad for such treatment. There is also a Radiology department that has its own CT Scanner and 2 Echocardiogram equipment.
They have an Eye Clinic which makes it possible to have all Eye Specialists can work together from one location at the ImSan with the latest eye care equipment. In the meantime, they have performed many retina eye surgeries.
ImSan now has its operation room with the latest equipment including their very own anesthetist. Besides, the ImSan also has its sterilization department to guarantee sterile equipment. The ImSan has its Emergency department with rooms to assist adults as well as children.
A known fact is that the ImSan works in collaboration with Baptist Health International to guarantee high-level medical procedures which also helps the ImSan get their international accreditation from the “Joint Commission International Accreditation” (JCI).
