The Servicio Andaluz de Salud (SAS) is going to spend 2.5m euros on the construction of a new building within the Hospital Santa Ana complex.
The Head of SAS, Francisca Antón, said that this will make space for another 24 beds and expects the work to be put out for tender before the year is out.
She went on to explain that this new building will make up for the loss of the Edifício Norte, which had meant that the administrative dependences had to be transfered over to Medicina Interna.
Finally, she said that the SAS would be studying the need to increase medical staff in order to be able to cope with real patient figures. She also dismissed rumours that the hospital could be closed or have its specialist departments reduced – the truth is completely the opposite, she claimed.
