Larnaca hospital expansion work due to begin next month

Larnaca hospital

Work is due to begin on the expansion of Larnaca hospital in September, reports said on Thursday.

According to the Cyprus News Agency, building the new €20m wing is scheduled to take 36 months. However an issue remains on how to resolve the problem of temporary parking as the current car park will be utilized during the works.

Among the options being examined is the use of the parking area at the nearby Ayios Giorgos church.

The foundation stone for the hospital was laid in February this year.

The new standalone building, spanning 19,7000 square metres, will stand across the hospital’s main entrance , connected to the main building via two covered bridges.

Across four storeys – two underground – the building will house offices, outpatient clinics including a space for physiotherapy, among others. Another four floors may be added in the future.

Additional features include a lecture hall, library, cafeteria, warehouses, parking lots and design and landscaping of the surrounding area.

The contractor who has designed and is due to construct the building will also maintain the space for 12 years, as part of the design-build-maintain contract.

Larnaca hospital was opened in 1984, on land donated by the Saint George Committee and via US funding
