Gibraltarians will continue to have access to Xanit Benalmadena and the San Antonio Hospital in Malaga.
The GHA and the Grupo Vithas have entered into a new agreement, which Government says was agreed before Parliament was dissolved.
The agreement increases options to GHA clinicians when referring patients who require tertiary care. The Vithas Xanit hospital in Benalmadena employs over 780 trained professionals, of which 250 are skilled physicians.
The Vithas Parque San Antonio in Malaga, which specialises in neonatal intensive care , employs six hundred professionals.
Both Vithas hospitals in the Costa del Sol are private hospitals. The two are accredited by the joint International Commission, which recognises quality and an organisation's commitment to meeting performance standards.
