The Spanish department of health has approved the construction of a major hospital in the northern African enclave of Ceuta. The complex will take four years to complete, at a cost of E54.4m ($58m). The main 228-bed hospitalisation building will include four operating theatres, eight obstetrics surgeries, 10 special examination units, radiodiagnostics services, laboratories and sterilisation facilities. Another 22-bed building will house outpatient services, including haemodialysis, day-surgery and A&E. In 2002, Ceuta, with only 69,000 inhabitants, performed almost 3,200 CAT scans, 620 mammographies, 4,400 ultrasound scans, 71,000 laboratory tests, 2,420 operations and attended more than 51,000 A&E cases.
