Salud Digna starts operations in Guatemala and El Salvador

Salud Digna is a health support organization of Mexican origin, which has recently started operations in the Republics of Guatemala and El Salvador, through its first clinical laboratory and imaging units in the capitals of these countries.

The company was founded in 2003 with the purpose of bringing prevention and timely diagnostic services to the Mexican population. Its mission is to contribute so that every day more people, in more places, have access to quality health care, with the best human and technological equipment. All this with the support and sponsorship of the Vizcarra Foundation, which promoted this social initiative with the firm intention of improving the quality of life of families.

After almost 20 years of work, Salud Digna has become an international benchmark of quality and has proven that its intervention model, studied by institutions such as Harvard Business School, has the capacity to reduce out-of-pocket health care costs for the families and communities it serves.

Recently, the firm García & Bodán advised Salud Digna in each of the legal aspects necessary for the start of operations in Guatemala and El Salvador, including the negotiation and signing of the respective lease agreement, sanitary registrations of products to be imported for the operation, registration of trademarks to be used, financial aspects derived from the operation and funding of the company, obtaining bank accounts, among others.

The legal advice was provided by Partners Oscar Torres and Mauricio Orellana in El Salvador, as well as Rosemarie Luna in Guatemala, Senior Associates Andrés Cofiño and Paúl Rodríguez and Associate Gabriela Arias. They also had the support of Senior Associate Fermina Bolaños and Associate Ma. Fernanda Villagrán in intellectual property and sanitary registration matters.

Salud Digna currently has more than 180 clinics in Mexico, operating in approximately 80 different cities. In Central America, a clinic has been established in Nicaragua, with the opening of its first clinic in El Salvador and the upcoming opening in Guatemala.
