The Marbella City Council has announced this Wednesday, July 20, that two companies have submitted bids for the construction of the new health center in the Malaga municipality of Las Chapas. It will be located on Calle Hacienda, next to the future municipal swimming pool.
This new facility will have eleven queries, five waiting rooms and more than 500m² of surface area. Ángeles Muñoz, mayor of Marbella, reported that the expected execution period is eight months.
He emphasized that: “We are going to provide the district with an absolutely necessary infrastructure to meet the demands of the citizens of the eastern part of the municipality, which until now only had a clinic in the City Hall itself.”
“Our commitment was that this was going to be the legislature of the facilities”, the mayor recalled and pointed out that the new health center on Ricardo Soriano avenue and the expansion of the Nueva Andalucía clinic will soon be put out to tender.
“Unfortunately, Marbella had a historical health deficit due to the helplessness of decades of socialist government at the head of the Board,” lamented the mayor, who thanked “the enormous sensitivity and close collaboration between administrations that we are experiencing with President Juanma Moreno, which It is allowing us to provide a city like ours with up to par health services”.
Diego López, Councilor for Works, has indicated that the bidding budget for the works is 841,247 euros. He explained that the facilities will have a constructed area of 527m² and a work area of 385m² on one floor, “with the future possibility of height expansion.”
Four of the eleven queries will be dedicated to family medicine and four more to nursing. The rest will be for paediatrics, social worker and midwifery. There will also be an admission area and emergency rooms, as well as a multipurpose/maternity room, five waiting rooms, a warehouse and a rest area for health professionals.
