For more than fifty years, HealthproMed has always guaranteed the accessibility of primary medical services to people without health insurance, across its health centers in San Juan, and Culebra.

Our organization, previously known as IPA 508-Belaval, started as a Diagnostic & Treatment Center (DTC), established by San Juan municipality.  Afterwards, HealthproMed acquired a federal subvention under Section 330 of the Public Healthcare Law, reshaping the DTC into a Community Health Center.

At the present, we still committed in providing high quality, expedited access and cost efficient medical services to improve the health of our communities. As a result, we are providing services at a forty four thousand square feet structure, which have new equipment and technologies, in order to deliver exceptional attention and care to our patients.
