Cancer treatment, cardiology, radiotherapy, maternity and pediatric care, emergency and intensive care… By 2022, Bursa Hospital should be able to handle over 2.6 million medical consultations a year. The public hospital will have 4,500 full-time employees, including 1,950 medical staff, and will receive a total of some 36,200 people a day.
“Proparco’s financing was earmarked for the design and construction of the hospital, but also for its upkeep-maintenance for 25 years, including the financing and provision of equipment and services for the hospital”, continues Jean-Gabriel Dayre.
As with the Adana and Elazig hospitals, which are also supported by Proparco, this project is part of the Health Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program implemented by the Turkish Ministry of Health. “Our financing enables us to support Turkey’s policy to improve public healthcare provision and access to healthcare for people”, concludes our Regional Director in Turkey.
With a total cost of EUR 489m, the project has also benefited from support from other development finance institutions and international and local commercial banks.
