The hospital considerably improves the health services in this border area , which is a region of difficult access due to its mountainous location.
It serves a permanent population of 30 000 residents and a seasonal peaks population of up to 150 000 people. The hospitalhas 68 beds and the capacity to treat 35 000 people per year.
