Inauguration of the Hospital in Inca (Mallorca)
The inauguration of the new St John of God Hospital at Inca (Majorca) took place on Monday, 21st October, attended by the Prior General, Jesús Etayo, and the President of the Government of the Balearic Islands, Francina Armengol. They were accompanied by the Hospital’s General Manager, Joan Carulla, the Superior and President of the Community, Felipe Romanos, and local dignitaries, including the President of the Balearic Parliament and the Mayor of Inca.
A relief sculpture of the symbol of the Hospitaller Order by the Majorcan sculptor Georgina Gamundí was presented in the Hospital Hall.
About 200 people attended the ceremony and visited the Hospital’s modern facilities and the public park annexed to it, in which a bronze statue of our Founder stands, which is to be named the St John of God Park.
The Hospital covering about 6,000 square metres will assist people to improve their functional abilities and their autonomy. It has 80 beds, 2 large gymnasia, 2 operating theatres and an MIR diagnostics unit. The main services will be in Geriatrics, and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation and Surgery.
Like the St John of God Hospital in Palma (Majorca), this new hospital forms part of the Balearic Islands’ public hospitals network.
The Order also has a Social Services Foundation supported by the hospital In Majorca, which cares for vulnerable and socially excluded families.
