At long last the construction work on the new medical centre for Salobreña has begun.
Mayor Javier Ortega Prados went round to the site this morning, where piles are being driven into the ground. Whilst there he admitted that the site for the new health installations is not the preferred one for some of the locals, although it was the only plot available for a building of this kind and size.
The new medical centre will have 18 doctor’s surgeries, two of which will be for paediatricians, a room for breast-feeding mothers and a minor-operations theatre. Furthermore the A&E Department will have four surgeries or boxes, an observations room and a treatment room.
The building plot, which is between Nuevo Parque La Fuente and the Fuente del Gambullón, covers 4,500 metres for the building itself and a parking area. As for the 3-storey building, it will occupy 2,477 sq/m of ground space.
The completion date is set for 18 months’ time and the whole project has a budget of 7.7-million euro,s which will be funded via the Plan de Mejora de Infraestructuras de Atención Primaria (MINAP).
