The Hospital AZAR project was a vision of Dr. Ron Elli since 2007. The design and preparation for this hybrid surgical/hospital center started in 2021 and is set to be completed in 2023. Ron Elli helped design this cutting-edge bariatric/cosmetic hospital alongside the greatest infusion clinic architects in the world. With the adoption of best practices in medical tourism and state-of-the-art medical services, their goal was to create one of the top bariatric centers in Tijuana, Mexico. A bariatric and plastic center that could rival and exceed the standards of other facilities like the Hospital del Prado, Sanoviv, CER, Angeles, Vida Wellness, Blue Medical, Oasis of Hope, Blue Medical, and Medical Tower (New City).
The new facility includes four operating rooms, an expanded recovery area with six beds, 40 rooms, an Intermediate Intensive Care Unit (ICU), an in-house laboratory & X-Ray department, and a fully-stocked pharmacy. The facility has a backup power plant, a water-filtration system, in-door parking, a deluxe spa, and more. Situated a few blocks from the Hyatt Place Tijuana, AZAR Specialty Hospital is also one of Mexico’s most eco-friendly bariatric facilities, with 20% of the hospital’s electricity running on green energy.
