According to the mayor of Loulé, Vítor Aleixo, the health centre will increase “the capacity to respond and the quality of services”.

The new building will be located on land next to the current Health Centre. The infrastructure will include four areas: Cluster of Central Health Centres, Family Health Unit, Community Health Care Unit and University Health Centre.

It is estimated that the works will be completed within two and a half years, in a building that will be able to serve 14 thousand people in the Family Health Unit and 70 thousand in the Community Health Care Unit. In total, the construction will cost 4.680 million euros.

Vítor Aleixo said that Loulé has other health projects in sight in the municipality of Loulé, including the expansion of health units such as Almancil and Quarteira.
