Health workers put the Isabel Zendal hospital ‘for rent’ “to recover the money stolen from the Madrid health care”


A group of health workers from Isabel Zendal in Madrid has published an ad on the Fotocasa real estate portal ‘renting’ the facilities of the enclosure because, as they point out, it does not meet the requirements of a health center. “We have put Zendal up for rent in case companies like @AmazonNewsES They are interested in storing their products, since as a hospital it does not work. It does not help to decongest the rest of the SERMAS hospitals and we do not stop getting dizzy, “they point out on their Twitter account.

In the advertisement, they offer “4 state-of-the-art industrial buildings (the best in Europe) on an area of ​​80,000 square meters”, as well as “12-meter high ceilings” and “fire protection with 3 main pumps”. They also clarify that “the rental of the ships does not include forced personnel” and that with the rent they intend “to recover the money stolen from the Madrid health care.”

On June 8, 2020, Isabel Díaz Ayuso announced the construction of a pandemic hospital that was built in “record time” for 50 million euros. After having turned the improvised emergency hospital of Ifema into the largest propaganda stage during the first wave – when Madrid had an excess of 140% mortality -, Ayuso wanted one that would be permanent in the capital and looked for an enclave very close to the from the Feria de Madrid, located in the business environment of Valdebebas, a wasteland of offices and half-built buildings in the northeast of Madrid where Esperanza Aguirre projected the failed project of the City of Justice.

The announcement outraged the entire healthcare sector. Seven months after its inauguration, Ayuso is looking for an outlet for that infrastructure that has cost three times more than budgeted and that has become the milestone of his management, after having been unable to carry out budgets in two years and only having approved a legislative project, the umpteenth reform of the Land Law.

The claims of the health workers in June a year ago – and which remain a year later – were the reinforcement of the workforce after four exhausting months in which the Madrid health system collapsed and the waiting lists did not stop growing due to the paralysis of surgical operations, diagnostic tests and first consultations with the specialist. Patients waiting six months for surgery have grown 3,500% since the pandemic began. Primary Care also demanded more professionals –and continues to do so– in the face of the new challenge they had ahead of becoming trackers and resuming activity after months dedicated to Ifema.

The president of the Community of Madrid not only ignored these requests, but three months later – when the Nurse Isabel Zendal hospital was already beginning to be a reality with extra costs that almost tripled the initial budget – she acknowledged in an interview in Telemadrid – in one more of the controversies for which Ayuso has decided to take control of public television – that among his plans was not to hire new toilets for the new health center, but to nourish it with professionals from the rest of the hospitals.
