Mijas council 'looking into ways' to pay for new local hospital

  • The mayor has said that if the Junta cannot find funds, he wants to investigate other routes

The mayor of Mijas, Juan Carlos Maldonado, has said that the council is looking for ways to fund the planned new local hospital for Fuengirola and Mijas.

Faced with what it says is the urgent need to improve healthcare in the area, the council is considering advancing or organising funds for the facility itself in some form.

A site in the Las Lagunas area has been identified, however the Junta regional government, which is responsible for healthcare, needs to budget money to pay for it. The mayor has said that if the Junta cannot find funds, he wants to investigate other routes.
