There are excellent health care facilities in the area including a brand new hospital in Torrevieja which is part of the Spanish National Health scheme. The hospital can be found just off the main N332 road running south from the town near to the Los Balcones Urbanisation. Torrevieja Hospital has some 250 beds and is equipped to deal with most types of operation and illness other that major heart surgery. Visit the official hospital web site for full information although the site is in Spanish. There is a bus route serving the hospital which runs from Oriheula Costa Town Hall from 07.30 daily. The hospital has a large (free) car park. To see what is covered by the Spanish equivalent of the National Health Service click here.
