When the new hospital in Granada opened in Armilla (PTS) it was decided to close down the old one called Clínico San Cecilio – however, it has been decided to reopen it.
The reason why is because it is needed to handle the overflow from the PTS (which took the name Clínico San Cecilio, too).
Yesterday saw the first Coronavirus patients arrive at the hospital, which is situated on the Avenida Madrid, a stone’s throw away from Hospital Virgen de las Nieves (Trauma). These patients, whose condition is not severe, were put in a ward on the right-wing on the second floor.
In the last couple of weeks the two general hospitals Virgen de las Nieves (Ruíz de Alda) and the PTS have been putting resources into to get it ready for occupation. The military emergencies unit (UME) and the Spanish Legion, have helped out with this as well as handling the disinfection and adaptation of the building.
The said ward has 28 beds and there will be about the same amount in the left wing, when it is brought into action, too. If need be the other floors can be reopened if the situation requires it
