The Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic (MoH SK) has selected a consortium composed by Ernst & Young Financial Advisory, Ltd. and Rose Csekes Ltd. as transaction advisor (TA) for the development of a new university hospital in Bratislava (NUHB) through a PPP project.
The consortium has been the only bidder in the tender process to hire a TA for the project. The team will be responsible for supporting the government during the tender process to select a private partner for the hospital PPP project.
In October last year we reported that the MoH SK published the list of bidders for the project:
The new 880-bed hospital will be constructed in the Karlova Ves cadastral area in the northwest part of Bratislava with a total area of approximately 9 hectares. The new facilities will have to handle 44,000 hospital admissions, 875,000 outpatient visits, 610,000 diagnostic procedures and 47,000 operations per year.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance (DBFOM) basis. The private partner is expected to have the contract for a period of approximately 30 years from commencement of the operational phase.
