The Hospital dos Marmeleiros will be the target of rehabilitation works that will take place in two phases. The first starts already on 11th June and will contemplate the entire exterior structure of the old building. The second phase will advance in the first quarter of 2019 and will take over the entire interior zone. The works are the result of a Regional Government investment of more than 1 million euros. The contract for the execution of the contract with the company RIM, to whom the work was awarded, will be signed next Tuesday.
For some time the structural and functional conditions of that hospital unit have been criticised and repaired by users and visitors to the health services, due to water infiltrations and the advanced state of degradation of the equipment, from doors and windows, as well as practically all the furniture.
