ZAGREB, November 16, 2018 – The government on Friday accepted a draft framework agreement on cooperation with the City of Zagreb in the preparation of a project for the construction of a national children’s hospital within the compounds of what was supposed to be a hospital in Zagreb’s Blato suburb.

“This is a historic opportunity for this government to do something that this nation and state badly need. We can now, in partnership with the City of Zagreb, build a new university hospital with its first stage being a children’s hospital, instead of just adapting and refurbishing the existing hospitals,” Health Minister Milan Kujundžić said.

On 13 September, the Zagreb City Assembly adopted a decision on the conclusion of the framework agreement regulating cooperation in the preparation of the project to build a national children’s hospital as the first stage of the establishment of a national university hospital within the compounds of the Blato hospital, whose construction was never completed.

The cooperation refers to the elaboration of a feasibility study and other documents as the basis for applying for project funding from the EU, the minister said.

The 2012-2020 national public healthcare development strategy envisages changes in the organisation and activities of hospitals and the establishment of a national university hospital as an umbrella healthcare institution offering medical services of the highest quality to citizens of Croatia, reads the government decision on endorsing the draft framework agreement.
