He wanted this institute to continue to grow and consolidate in the future, because in 2012, when assuming the Presidency, it leaves it financially sound, with more infrastructure and improvements in its service, for that he has been "sincerely in the way of bankruptcy".
That was possible, he explained, because there was a record number of jobs in this sexennium and, with 4 million jobs, the contributions of these formal workers strengthen the institution's revenue.
"Before the numbers allow or do not provide viability to the investment that the institute has to do to expand its infrastructure, and in six years it has been possible to turn this unfavorable scenario around," he said.
He said healthy finances allowed the construction of 12 hospitals, 40 family medicine units and 10 breast clinics, and was extended by 10 million plus the number of beneficiaries served, totaling 80 million.
IMSS "reminds us of the value of preserving and strengthening the major institutions in Mexico, the institutions that ensure long-term development, because they overcome ties, overcome governments and define the times, institutions will allow us to continue to transform our nation," said Peña Nieto.

"Due to financial discipline, a financial surplus of over 21 billion pesos was achieved between 2016 and 2018", their income was higher than their spending, and therefore I repeat, viability is guaranteed at least 2030, "he said .
In his report to the assembly, Tuffic Miguel Ortega stressed that at the end of the administration, "we have issued another IMSS, which today is firmly headed towards the future."
At the start of sex, "rescue seemed imminent", digitization did not arrive, infrastructure was stagnant and turned into low attention and complaints.
After an investment of 21 billion pesos in infrastructure, equipment and modernization, a sum equivalent to the annual budget of three state ministries, "today we can proudly say that we have a different institution," he said, noting that the level of satisfaction of Beneficiaries went from 77% to 86% in six years.
