This week the Canarian Executive of the Government of the Canary Islands announced that works to begin the extension of the General Hospital of Fuerteventura, as well as those for the health centres of Gran Tarajal and Corralejo, will now be offered for tender.
The bidding process will be carried out after applying the specifications required by the new Law for Public Administration Contacts that has just come into force.
This hospital expansion will allow the creation of new buildings that complement the existing ones, including a new building to house the radiotherapy service to provide radiotherapy care, as well as a new hospital department to care for psychiatric patients needing medium and long term stays.
This project includes the construction of another module on the ground floor with a meeting hall and general meeting room, while in the upper levels, there will be two hospitalisation units that will focus on addressing several toxins or strains of pathogens or polyvalent centres for medicine and surgery. This expansion will cost around 10 million euros.
The Corralejo Health Centre works will remodel the emergency care area and will build new care facilities on the current terrace on the first floor.
