Has anybody had to use the medical services at Le Blanc?
I was just wondering how they were...
Can't comment specifically on Le Blanc, but most resorts have an onsite doctor that speaks English to deal with minor matters like cuts and scrapes and upset tummies. They should be able to handle any sort of injections you might require for an existing condition and deal with allergic reactions, diabetes etc.. For more dire emergencies there are a couple of good hospitals in Cancun that you will be brought to, most likely either Hospiten or Hospital de las Americas (previously called Amerimed).
Distance will depend on traffic (and if you are taking a taxi or an ambulance). You might make it in 10 minutes in an ambulance, during rush hour in a taxi might take you 30 minutes or a bit more. There are ambulances stationed in the hotel zone so they won't be coming from all the way downtown, you should be able to get there fast in an emegency.
Can't help you with this one, luckily, we didn't require any medical services.
Le Blanc's website states that they have a doctor on call 24 hours a day. For what it is worth, a senior at a local high school here died a few years back after falling off his hotel balcony in Puerto Vallarta. Not sure if it is different in Cancun, but it took over a half hour for the ambulance to show up there.
