The expansion and refurbishment work on the Hospital Comarcal de Inca began in February 2021 at a cost of €8,000,372.
The first of the completed reforms was the new rehabilitation building, a space of 668 m2 (350 more than the previous one) in which more than twenty professionals work.
Last January saw the inauguration of the new intensive care unit (ICU). A space of 903 m2 (812 more than the current ICU) with seven beds and a technical room, where an additional bed can be placed if necessary. It should be noted that, before the pandemic, the hospital only had four ICU beds.
A month ago, the new adult emergency department was opened. It is a new space of 2,263 m2 (939 more than the current emergency area), with forty places, ten seats and six short-stay unit beds. Until now it had thirty-three places and two seats.
From now on, adult and paediatric emergency care will follow separate circuits. The paediatric emergency area has seven seats, six bunk beds and two short-stay unit beds.
In accordance with the 1999 functional plan, the Hospital Comarcal de Inca was designed to attend a population of 84,000 inhabitants, but it currently attends almost 137,500, which means that the initially planned size has been significantly exceeded.
