In May 2007, the Technical Board of The Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) appointed him regional delegate of the institute in Baja California Sur following a proposal by director general Juan Francisco Molinar Horcasitas. As the head of the IMSS in Baja California Sur, in 2009, he initiated the construction of a new hospital of the Institute in San José del Cabo, in response to demands from residents of the area. Before he was appointed IMSS delegate, he was regional coordinator for the north-west (2003–2005) for the recently established Rural Finance Company (managed by the current Energy Secretary, José Antonio Meade Kuribreña) operating in the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa and Sonora.
