PLANS to build an €18m hospital capable of dealing with 85,000 patients a year, have been announced.
Mayor of Estepona, Jose Maria Garcia Urbano and Regional Health Councillor, Aquilino Alonso, unveiled the project on Monday.
The Alta Resolucion Hospital will deal with up to 91,000 emergency treatments and 4,000 surgeries a year.
Building firm Garcia Urbano estimates it will take almost two years to complete.
The aim of the multi-disciplinary hospital is to streamline and improve consultations by equipping it with the means to treat most patients in ‘one appointment.’
