June 16, 2015 – Lima, Peru - In an interview on Canal N, the president of EsSalud Virginia Baffigo, mentioned among other issues that EsSalud built five hospitals in these two years of management: 2 (two) PPP (Public Private Partnership) hospitals in Lima (administered by IBT Group) who are protecting half a million people, and hospitals of high complexity of Trujillo, Tarapoto and Abancay.

On the other hand, the interviewer Jaime de Althaus, said that PPPs (Public Private Partnerships) have better service and questioned all hospitals should become under this system. He also noted that the 2 hospitals PPP in Lima (Hospital Alberto Barton Thompson and Hospital Guillermo Kaelin de la Fuente, managed by IBT Group) work efficiently because they are better than private clinics and they cost less money to EsSalud than a conventional hospital because they are "Bata Blanca".
