Promised La Linea hospital still only half built

TIME is running out if delays are to be avoided in opening a new public hospital in La Linea.
Work to prepare the new building, which started again last November after being halted for two years, is only about 50 per cent complete, meaning it will be hard to meet the Junta de Andalucia regional government’s promise that it would be finished by the end of this year.
Even if the end of year goal is met, furnishing the building, which will care for more than 100,000 residents of La Linea, Jimena, Castellar de la Frontera and San Roque, is expected to take another six months.
The Andalucian Health Service has announced that the centre will be a modern 32,000-square-metre hospital with 248 individual rooms, nine operating theatres, an intensive care ward with capacity for 34 patients and 48 external consultation rooms.
