Four proposals were presented, the values ​​of which vary between €74,698,447 and €74,933,333. Three companies declined to submit tenders, although they were interested in so, as they were not able to fit into the base price of the procedure, which was €75,000,000.

The Procedural Jury has already started the analysis of the submitted proposals, with the purpose of presenting, to the Regional Government, a proposal for ordering them, based on the previously defined award criterion.

The first phase of the work on the new hospital is currently being carried out, which corresponds to the execution of excavation and peripheral retaining work that will allow for the implementation of the new hospital building itself. This phase has an approximate value of €23m (including VAT), having started in the first half of 2021, with the conclusion of the works expected in September of this year, when the work of the second phase should start.
