New site to be looked at for Javea's L'Arenal medical centre

JAVEA council is looking for new premises for the Arenal beach medical centre that operates during the summer season following complaints about the current hut-style structure.

The facility has suffered water supply and air conditioning problems, with Javea mayor, Rosa Cardona, describing working conditions as ‘subhuman’.

It’s believed that a budget of up to €400,000 has been allocated to find an alternative building in the area.

The council has previously asked for €1 million from the Valencian Health Ministry to build a full-time facility for the Arenal area.

Health councillor, Fatima Jarjor, said the request is still on the table but if a new temporary site is identified, it could be converted into a police station if a permanent solution surfaces.

The former Javea mayor, the PSOE’s Jose Chulvi is sceptical that a new home can be found in time for the summer.

If a site is found and is operational, I will applaud like mad,” said Chulvi.
