The final phase of construction at Cotai’s new Islands Healthcare Complex is expected to start by the end of the year, according to a Public Works Bureau (DSOP) announcement made yesterday. It will consist of a specialised rehabilitation hospital.
Last month, the government launched a public tender for the project. Only one construction company submitted a bid by the deadline, which was unsealed on Monday and accepted by the DSOP.
While the name of the company has not yet been made public, its bid proposed a 1.68 billion patacas total cost for the project and a 969 day construction period.
The new rehabilitation hospital will be 15-storeys tall and cover a site of 2,300 metres, according to yesterday’s announcement. Four footbridges will connect it to the Islands Healthcare Complex’s general hospital and public bus stops.
The first phase of the complex is already complete; it included the general hospital, a logistics support building, an administration and multi-purpose building, a nursing college, staff quarters, and a central laboratory building.
It’s expected to open its doors to patients in December this year.
