At least ten new private hospitals are on tap to be constructed in the Algarve Region of Portugal over the next few years. Hospital beds are expected to triple over the next five years with the primary focus on tourists and holiday travelers who visit the region or have second homes there.
The first of these new facilities is set to open in mid-2009 in Faro and will be part of the Grupo Hospital Particular do Algarve. It is being constructed next to the Gambelas University Campus and will have 100 beds with private rooms and suites for patients. The new hospital will have 12,000 square meters of space with an Emergency Room, intensive care unit and state of the art equipment.
Two other hospitals are also under construction in the region, one in Portimão and one in Albufeira. The Portimão facility will be part of a larger, assisted care project that is being developed by the Lenitudes Group. In Albufeira, the Trofa Health Group is constructing its new hospital with approximately 50 beds and is said to be planning another in Ferreiras. Other private hospitals that are in the works are set for Loule, Tavira, and Vila Real Santo António.
