The Slovak Health Ministry has received proposals form seven bidders to develop a new university hospital in Bratislava (NUHB) through a PPP project.

According to sources, the seven bidders include among others:

  • GPN,
  • Agel,
  • Metrostav with InterHealth Canada
  • Rizzani de Eccher
  • Pessina Construzioni SPA
  • Ribera Salud infraestructuras

The new 880-bed hospital, which will be the the first PPP project in Slovakia's public health system, 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. Specifically, future private partner is expected to be responsible for the following services:

  •  Design of the NUHB incorporating functional and technical requirements presented by the MoHSK,
  •  Build of the new hospital buildings and equipment,
  •  Securing the financing for the project,
  •  Operating the NUHB, including medical equipment maintenance and renewal, and all clinical services,

The total project investment is estimated between €200 million (US$223.7 million) and €250 million (US$279.6 million).

The project is expected to be operational by 2017.
