The budget that will enable the functioning of these new facilities has been made possible due to three factors: 1 million euro destined to renovate two  operating rooms of the old Viladecans Hospital; 1 million in recruiting staff (20 professionals) and approximately half a million for providing goods and services (pharmacy, prosthesis, cleaning, etc..), the budgetary effort was done by the Southern Metropolitan Regional Management Area, and by the management of Viladecans Hospital.

The use of these three operating rooms will start the update of the remaining operating rooms. It is worth to mention  that Bellvitge and  Viladecans hospitals are creating a networking to achieve a healthcare synergy in the area of the Delta Llobregat.

Due to the increased surgical capacity with the new facilities it is expected to make over a thousand surgeries a year. Mainly priority diseases such as cataracts, inguinal hernia, hip and knee arthroscopy, bunion, tonsillectomy or hysterectomies among others.
