Portugal’s Algarve region has been the country’s major summer hotspot for years, and it continues to attract visitors from near and far. New developments and infrastructure improvements are drawing more interest from tourists and investors as the region looks to continue as the most popular destination in the country for the future.
A new Central Hospital is in the works for the Parque das Cidades between Loulé and Faro, and this will help everyone in the region, from international visitors and residents to locals who have lived here all their lives. The new hospital is set to begin construction in 2009 with completion due in 2012. Until the hospital is up and running, a regional health center and laboratory will operate nearby.
This is the first of several new facilities for the Parque das Cidades, which surrounds the Algarve Stadium. A technology center is also being planned by the Algarve Regional Centre for Innovation (CRIA). Additionally, there are plans for a meeting and convention center with room for 1,800 people and a hotel with 200 new beds.
The new hospital, which together with the conversion of the current building into a continuing care unit represents an investment of €250 million, will have 549 beds. It will also have new areas of specialism such as Angiology and Vascular Surgery, Pediatric Surgery, Endocrinology and Nutrition, Medical Genetics, Neuroradiology and Radiotherapy, none of which currently exists at the Faro Hospital.
