Sandy Beach Medical Center Offers Full Medical Service in an Affordable Annual Membership

Aug 1, 2015 by Joe Houchin

At the age of seven, when most kids’ loftiest dreams are about how high they can climb or how fast they can run, the young future Doctor Jesús González-Gaytán, declared to his mother that when he grew up he was going to be a doctor and cure cancer. When he was four years old his family relocated to Del Rio, Texas from Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico just across the border.

His goal to be a doctor and cure cancer grew into a passion to study illnesses of all types until he graduated from Del Rio High School. Jesús went straight into medical studies in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico where he met Myriam, a fellow medical student who became his wife. During their three years studying in Monterrey they were blessed with three baby girls, including a set of twins. Myriam, a naturally faithful and devoted wife, opted to trade her medical career to become a full time mom so the family could accompany Jesús throughout his studies which took them as far away as Barcelona, Spain. He finished his studies in Puebla, earning a Diploma in Internal Medicine and Obstetrics along with his License to practice medicine. During this time he and Myriam welcomed their fourth child, this time a boy.

The required internships afterward took them to Hermosillo and Zaragoza over a two year period. The Doctor even received a government scholarship to practice plastic surgery in Argentina, which he turned down in favor of taking the renowned U.S. Medical Residency test, which had the reputation of passing only 10% of the 20,000 applicants who take the test each year.

He passed with honors and began post graduate residency at Texas Tech University Medical School that required intensive service in the four areas of Psychiatry, Internal Medicine, Neurology and Emergency Room care. Jesús was recognized and accepted to the final three years of residency in Internal Medicine at Texas Tech Medical. In 1986 he took the FLEX exam in Santa Fe, New Mexico and received his full License to Practice as a Medical Doctor.

Doctor Jesús González followed his passion to care for others over the next 17 years in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico where he built a historic relationship with over 4,000 patients in the small but iconic town out of a total population of only 8,000 men, women and children, one 35 bed hospital and eight other doctors, who, between them, handled the remaining 4,000 residents. During that time the Doctor was appointed as Medical Director of nearly every health facility in Truth or Consequences, including the 120 patient nursing home, the Amber Care Home Health Organization and the Hospice Center. He was ER Director of the local hospital and Director of EMS for the city.

All this while Dr. González performed the full gamut of medical care for his patients; delivering over 150 babies and assisting with hundreds of surgeries and emergency cases. He developed in-depth knowledge and skills in identifying a vast array of cancers and other diseases.

As satisfying as all these challenges were, 17 years of small town politics finally became a distraction the Doctor and his family found harder and harder to deal with. At the urging of his loyal wife, Myriam, Doctor González chose to return to his country of birth, where his vast skills could be of benefit where they were needed the most. He accepted the position of Medical Director of the large chain of AmeriMed Hospitals in Mexico and, in 2006 he and Myriam came to Puerto Peñasco and set up their own practice to treat the Mexican and American residents of this small but growing seaside community.

He specialized in state-of-the-art cancer treatments for several years with remarkable success, but the most successful methods were receiving mixed responses at the federal level of both the U.S. and Mexico, making consistent treatment next to impossible and very expensive. Dr. González’ childhood dreams had been realized in many ways and in 2010 he determined that the next phase of his career was at the threshold. That was to create a much needed full service emergency medical care facility to serve everyone at any level of medical need. While he emphasized that he was available for anyone, he found that the American and Canadian expats and visitors were in need of a fully bilingual doctor with the expertise that could only be gained over many years in the U.S. environment.

Dr. González then began working toward developing an all-inclusive medical care plan that would be affordable for everyone. He perfected this concept over the next four years which included creative attempts to import Doctors, to reuniting with AmeriMed to build a hospital at his Sandy Beach facility. The persistence and perseverance of the determined Dr. González, powered by his boyhood dream and the total support of his wife, Myriam, has resulted in the creation of a perfected plan that will allow every resident and frequent visitor in Puerto Peñasco to have full medical care for one affordable annual cost. This program is the Sandy Beach Medical Services Membership where members can have such things as unlimited visits to the clinic whether in an emergency or for routine diagnoses of what is ailing them. It also covers the otherwise expensive emergency ambulance transportation to the border.
