El Mojón hospital gets official seal of approval this year 

SOUTH Tenerife’s new hospital, El Mojón, will be up and running, fully, before the end of the year, after nearly two decades of speculation and concern. And that’s official!

It has overcome so many obstacles since its inception, with stop-start building work, year by year, as well as a protest strike by the current construction company, Sacyr, in late 2016.

That was resolved early last year, though, and the old accident-and-emergency department of El Mojón, in the Chayofa area, is now a real eye-opener, having been transformed into a high-class hospital for everyone.

Jordi Esplugas, main spokesman for the hospital and its installations for many years, has confirmed the news in a statement.

It will be equipped with five operating theatres and three delivery rooms, along with wards for people receiving special treatments.

And Canarian President Fernando Clavijo, after his lengthy visit to the hospital last week, announced that El Mojón would also incorporate a department for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy treatment, as well as specific wards for patients undergoing kidney dialysis.

Clavijo was accompanied by Tenerife Cabildo President Carlos Alonso, and José Manuel Baltar, the Canarian Minister of Health, who, between them, assessed the status of the remaining work necessary to complete the job.

They have confirmed that the operating theatres, along with the delivery suites, will be fully operational by October.

Everyone is aware that the hospital has been many years in the making. But, when finalised, it will feature state-of-the-art technology, including an MRI scan, which will have huge benefits for early diagnoses.
