South Hospital has new comfort zone!

Local 1IN just a couple of weeks, the first phase of 49 beds in Tenerife South Hospital will be installed, which is a huge step forward for the building as a whole.

Guía de Isora Mayor Pedro Martin confirmed the news, following a conversation with Regional Health Minister Jesus Morera.

A delighted Martin said: “Finally, we will begin to see commitments fulfilled by this important health infrastructure. It is payment on a debt, that has been outstanding for many years, which the Canary Islands Government had with the citizens and the mayors of this area.”

He added: “The launch of these first 49 beds means we can already start talking about something more than just a centre with medical specialities.”

Mayor Martin had more good news from the Ministry of Health: there are plans to introduce another 98 beds in the coming months, which will complete the next phase.

The Guía de Isora Mayor also confirmed that the hospital will be able to work at full capacity in some areas, such as offering chemotherapy treatment for patients in the South, thus by-passing their lengthy trips up to hospitals in Santa Cruz.

The South Hospital currently operates basic services and an emergency department. But at long last, things are moving, which will please thousands in the South.
