The long-awaited Estepona hospital is rushing towards the deadline with only 60 days left to go until completion.
After the structure, foundations, and roofs were finished of the future hospital, the works, which have exceeded 65 percent of the execution, are now focused on indoor facilities such as plumbing, electricity, air conditioning, fire safety, and alarms. In addition, the work on the façade has been started. The new hospital, expected to open next year, will cover 14,300 square meters on a 15-acre (60,000 square-meter) site.
The greenest hospital in the country
Earlier this month, the town hall shared more information about the green space that will surround Estepona’s new hospital, located in the Santa María district to the west of the town. José María García Urbano, Estepona’s mayor, has explained that there will be 7,000 square meters of new gardens, including a seven-meter-high vertical embankment wall with plants. Native Mediterranean species will surround the hospital building itself and the car park will have shady trees.
Estepona hospital costs 15 million
The City of Estepona pays more than half of the total construction costs. The City Council of Estepona (Malaga) has reported that it has already paid more than 7.5 million euros for the works of the Alta Resolución Hospital, that is being built in the far western part of the municipality. The mayor further explained that this sanitary facility will have a municipal investment of 15 million euros in total.
Estepona Hospital capacity
According to a recent article in EuroPress, the hospital of Estepona will have the capacity to attend almost 80 percent of the consultations in the region that are currently being treated at the Costa del Sol Hospital (Marbella), which will involve more than 85,000 consultations, 91,000 emergencies and 4,000 surgeries every year.
