Our image as a lawless place for underage drinking makes about as much sense as believing that Chicago is still being shot up by Al Capone’s gang. Here in the twenty-first century, Tijuana has become the high-tech crossroads for the Pacific Rim and the United States, leading the world in precision medical manufacturing as well as in cutting-edge medical attention.

In what has become a biennial celebration, Tijuana Innovadora spends ten days showcasing what Tijuana really has to offer the world. Our maquiladora industry, for example, has evolved into six-sigma manufacturers of electronic equipment for aerospace and consumer markets in which local companies such as Plantronics consistently receive international acclaim. Our local cuisine is now taught by a world-class culinary school and our restauants are listed among the world’s best by the New York Times and other publications.

But here at ProgenCell, we are proudest of Tijuana’s accomplishments in the field of health care. If you have a chance, stop by Tijuana Innovadora on 16 October 2012, when they will devote an entire day to our “Medical Industry”. ProgenCell will be presenting at 5:00p.m. in the conference:   Medicina de vanguardia: Células madre en la oftalmología.


ProgenCell, a Stem Cell Therapy Clinic located in Tijuana, Mexico, has received IBMS Center of Healthcare Excellence Gold Certification.   This important milestone was achieved by means of a process that involved an evaluation of conformity to strict guidelines, plus the activation of a quality system.

The IBMS Center of Healthcare Excellence Gold Certification, granted by the International Board of Medicine and Surgery (IBMS), based in Florida, USA, recognizes the high level of quality of the medical establishment and covers all activities related to patient care.

“ProgenCell has been visited and audited; they have proven to operate as a trusted facility. We have met their medical staff, administrative personnel, reviewed official credentials and licenses, documentation control, adverse reactions policy, and all other pertinent records. We are proud to add ProgenCell as an IBMS Gold Certified member.” Dr. David Kalin MD MPH, Executive Director IBMS

 The application of the quality system creates the highest possible standards of customer service, as well as medical operations. For patients, this translates into a trusted medical team where they can be assured treatment will be provided in a clean surgical room; sterile material is being used; and they will receive treatment from a fully licensed professional center.   ProgenCell has been following a policy of voluntary certification with several local, national and international organizations.

 “ProgenCell has always given top priority to quality and professionalism, considering these values and always focusing on improving quality of life for all our patients.”  Elias Bemaras, CEO and Director of ProgenCell.

ProgenCell’s commitment to safety, efficacy, ethics and top customer service has grown over the years, in line with an evolution of innovative medical procedures. These goals have required choices demanding a great commitment of resources and effort, but they have set an example of social responsibility.
