Valencia’s healthcare sector is experiencing a boom with massive investments being ploughed into new clinics and hospitals for the city

Spain’s Valencia has attracted in recent years a good number of projects to build and open new private hospitals in the city. Some of these projects are already underway and operating, and the rest already have the permits to begin their construction. In particular, due to this “boom” in health construction, Valencia will have 6 new private hospitals in the coming years that will exceed 103 million in investment.

In mid-January, construction began on the new Biomedical Hospital of Ascires, which will have an area of 30,000 square meters and will be located on a plot of land at the intersection of Tres Cruces Avenue and Campos Crespo Street. The company has estimated the investment to build this hospital at more than 30 million.

The responsible group Vithas also have the permits, whose new hospital Valencia Turia, located in Malilla, will represent an investment of 50 million, will create 89 beds and will be built on 27,000 square meters. Additionally, IMED can already build its new hospital in the center of the capital, on Isabel La Católica street, in the former Iberdrola building. IMED’s estimated investment in this project will exceed 7.4 million euros.

“Within this ‘boom’ of healthcare projects, two more clinics must be mentioned that are already in operation. The first is the Imske clinic, the European Musculoskeletal Institute, dedicated to state-of-the-art traumatology and rehabilitation and pioneering treatments for sports injuries, which has opened on Suiza Street.

It has required an investment of 14 million and is located in the Las Moreras neighborhood. The second is the Sanitas specialty center, located on Avenida Baleares, in the former Natural Gas factory, which represents an investment slightly above one million euros and offers 27 consultations in its 3,500 square meters.”

“In sixth place, another project promoted by a national healthcare group must be mentioned, which plans to install another hospital in an expanding area of Valencia and is already working on the land divisions where the future medical center will be located. This company has not yet requested permits but has announced its intention to develop the aforementioned project to the authorities.”

All of these new initiatives related to the healthcare sector are in addition to the “boom” of student housing and hotels that the city is experiencing. The latest project to build a hotel on Salamanca street, which was reported by Levante-EMV today, will consist of 53 rooms with 11 bike parking spaces.

The counsellor of Activities, Lucía Beamud, highlighted that the government headed by Joan Ribó “has facilitated and managed many large investments during these years, streamlining all the procedures, holding meetings with the technical teams of these projects to help and guide them in all processes, which has required a great effort for the activities service, whom I want to thank for all their work as counsellor of this municipal area”.

“With Ribó -she added- the companies that invest and generate wealth and jobs in our city have an ally. Because unlike the Popular Party, which had thousands of stuck and stalled license applications for years, with this government we are solidifying a good number of priority projects.”

Lastly, it should be noted that the Activities department has recently processed permits for other iconic projects such as the Alquería del Basket, the main headquarters of Vodafone in Corts Valencianes, the Roig Arena Pavilion, the Saltoki facilities, the gastronomic market in the Vila printing press, or the Levante UD Sports City. Many of them have been or will be carried out under the formula of preferred projects to streamline their administrative process as much as possible.
