MADRID – Eight new hospitals are to be built in Madrid at a cost of EUR 800 million, it was announced Monday.

Esperanza Aguirre, president of the Madrid regional government, said two of the new hospitals are to be in Parla and Valdemoro, which are commuter towns 5km from the capital.

Others will be in Coslada, Arganda del Rey, San Sebastian de los Reyes, Vallecas, Majadahonda and Aranjuez.

They will be built and equipped by private companies.

The regional government has organised an agreement whereby it will rent the new hospitals.

Aguirre said the hospitals were part of the region's health plan between 2003 and 2007.

This also includes the construction of 50 new health centres.

She also said the bill for the new hospitals will be met by agreeing a deal in which the cash can be paid back over 30 years.
