THE Reina Sofía University General Hospital in Murcia has unveiled a new area for the treatment of infectious diseases.

This has enabled them to expand the amount of space dedicated to this important service and increase the number of available consultations.  The previous area only had a single consulting room backed up by a small nursing station.  The transfer to the new base at the Reina Sofía allows for two doctor consulting rooms, a waiting room and enables this area to be separate from the rest of the hospital in its own 80m2 of space.

This will now prevent any possible conflicts with other medical conditions and allows the medical specialists to all be located in the same location.  On his visit to the new centre, Health Minister Manuel Villegas said: “The new facilities will enable more people suffering from infectious conditions to receive treatment as an out-patient and avoid admission where possible.”

The infectious diseases unit acts as a multifunctional unit collaborating with many other sections of the hospital in the demands from primary care, emergencies, occupational hazards, preventive medicine and microbiology.
