On 12 January, Grupo Puentes began work for the Regional Government of Andalusia on the construction of the High Resolution Hospital in Roquetas de Mar, Almeria, which will be built by 2023.
On a plot of almost 50,000 square metres, the building will occupy an area of 16,300 square metres. This space will house a surgical block, a multi-purpose hospitalisation area, consulting rooms and radiology. It will have four operating theatres, a rehabilitation room, emergency department, radiology service and clinical support area. Patients will have 53 rooms. The centre will also have 27 outpatient consultations and 15 examination rooms. There will be a heliport for urgent patient transfers.
At the official groundbreaking ceremony, the Andalusian president, Juanma Moreno, highlighted the importance of the new hospital.
