THE Canarian Government has announced plans for a new health centre, costing nearly 2.3m euros, to be built on a 3,700sq/m plot of land, donated by San Miguel Ayuntamiento. And it has already released the tender for the construction.

The land is situated in the Llano del Camello area, and San Miguel Mayor Arturo González Hernández has emphasised the importance of the centre, which is why the Town Hall is responding to the area’s needs.

“With the unblocking of this project, another request from local government is addressed,” he said. “The centre will mean a vast improvement of medical services for the important population residing in this area of our municipality.”

And, in fairness, the demographic growth in Las Chafiras, during recent years, means that an appropriate health centre is needed, to meet the demand.

Canary Islands President Clavijo, who has also given the project his blessing, vows to get the process through as quickly as possible, to enable work to begin.

As for the characteristics of the new centre, the project includes three inter-connected modules, arranged on a single floor, for the health centre, and a basement for internal use.

It will also have four consultation rooms for family medicine and nursing, plus a paediatric section, which will include two consultation areas, and the same number of nursing spaces, as well as a waiting room. There will also be a paediatric toilet and a lactation room (a private space for mothers to breastfeed, and to use a breast pump).

An emergency area will also be available, with a cardio-pulmonary resuscitation room, a clinical-sample room, treatment and waiting rooms, together with toilets for patients.

A women’s area is also planned, with a midwife consultation and maternity-education room.

The building will also have an administrative area and archive, for medical records, as well as an administrative office and a meeting room, in addition to changing rooms for personnel.

The tender of the work will be carried out through an open procedure, with a total budget of 2,292,379 euros, in three annual payments until 2020, co-financed by the European Regional Development.
