The Government of Chile has published the tender process for two hospital concessions, the hospital Sótero del Río and the hospital Santiago Occidente.
Both projects include the construction, the provision of clinical and non-clinical furniture, the medical equipment, the industrial equipment and furnishings associated. Additionally, the contract include the infrastructure maintenance and the maintenance of medical equipment among others.
MOP's hospital concessions program is part of the government's programme of concessioned public infrastructure, which calls for the concession of 11 hospitals between 2010 and 2014, with total investment of US$2.2 billion.
Both hospitals were severely damaged during the 8.8-magnitude earthquake that struck the country's central-southern regions in February 2010.
