Chile's Public Ministries of Works and Health received four proposals for the concession of the Salvador Geriatric Hospital and the National Institute of Geriatrics (Hospital Salvador Geriátrico and Instituto Nacional de Geriatría). The project, located in Chile's capital Santiago, is part of the national hospital concessions program.
The following teams submitted bids yesterday for the US$308 million project:
Economic proposals will be opened on January 29th, 2014 when the contract will be awarded.
The contract will include the preparation of the final design, construction and maintenance of all works necessary for optimal operation of the two health facilities, the provision of clinical and non-clinical and industrial furniture and all associated infrastructure equipment, as well as the basic services. Clinical services are not included in the contract.
The new project will add 641 beds to the public health system.
MOP's hospital concessions program is part of the government's new wave of concessioned public infrastructure, which calls for the concession of 11 hospitals between 2010 and 2014, with total investment reaching US$2.2bn.
The program includes capital Santiago's Salvador Geriatric Hospital, Félix Bulnes, Sótero del Río and Puento Alto hospitals; region VII's Curicó and Linares hospitals; region VIII's Chillán hospital; and region V's Provincial de Marga-Marga and Biprovincial de Quillota-Petorca hospitals.
