The president of the Cabildo of Tenerife, Carlos Alonso, said yesterday in a brief meeting with the media, that work on the first phase of Hospital del Sur will be finally completed later this January. Then it is down to the Government of Canarias to ensure it has the equipment and staff to come into operation next March or April.
Alonso said the Cabildo of Tenerife has already invested over 30 million euros in the construction of the hospital building.
Now the Canarian Government has to ensure completion of the center – they have already begun to collect tenders for works and equipment.
This new center will, among other things, have better emergency services than those of Hospital Candelaria, day hospital for treatment of chronically ill and beds of medium and long stay emergency.
