On Wednesday, there will be a large-scale medical services campaign held at the Ricardo Jiménez Núñez Public Clinic in Guadalupe Canton, located in San José Province.

The Social Security campaign runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. during which health workers strive to attend at least 1,500 patients who have been designated to this clinic.

Staffers will offer a comprehensive range of medical services including regular eye exams, prescription glasses, general eye care, blood pressure checks, heart pressure tests, and dental care, among others.

The clinic staff will reach out to patients according to their registration details to schedule medical appointments.

Residents of Guadalupe Canton, as well as foreign residents with DIMEX residency cards, can gather additional information about the medical campaign by visiting the clinic information office. 

This is one of many mass medical services campaigns launched by public institutions this year. The Jaco Beach Public Clinic, known as Ebais, located in Garabito Canton in Puntarenas Province, launched a campaign for cancer detection.

The mass campaigns provide a handful of non-emergency medical services that Social Security has launched to reduce waiting times for medical appointments. They are attempting to catch up on all non-emergency services put on hold during the height of the pandemic from 2020-2022.

What other mass medical services campaign should Social Security launch?
